Abstract: Microelectro mechanical systems have widespread applications as sensing elements in manufacturing operations. Small scale, self-energizing sensors are very much required in the modern machining industries. This work presents use of functional graded nanopolymer composites as a microbeam sensing elements in milling application towards prediction of workpiece displacement. A model to investigate the dynamic-pull-in characteristics of a functionally carbon nanotube (FG-CNT) reinforced polymer composite microbeam is developed. Based Eular-Burnoulli theory the dynamic governing equation of an electrostatically actuated micro resonator is derived. The material properties of the FG-CNT composite microbeam are estimated using modified Halpin-Tsai model and rule of mixture. A squeeze film damping is accounted along with electrostatic actuation. The influences of voltage effect, volume fraction, and distribution of CNTs and initial amplitude on dynamic-pull-in behaviors of the microbeam are discussed. A dynamic model of machining process is considered to illustrate the relative motion sensed by the microbeam resonator.
