In this study, free vibrations and resonances analysis of a nanocomposite beam with internal damping is investigated. For this purpose the various distributions of carbon nanotubes with arbitrary average volume fractions are considered. System includes the geometry and inertia nonlinearities. With the aid of Hamilton principle the equations of motion are derived and using the Galerkin method are reduced to ordinary ones. To analyze the system the multiple scales method is utilized. In free analysis the analytical expressions for amplitude, phase and nonlinear natural frequency are obtained. Also, the effect of system parameters such as damping coefficients, kind of the carbon nanotube distribution, average volume fraction of nanotubes in them are probed. In free analysis, it is observed that by increasing the external damping the amplitude is decreased. Also, by increasing the average volume fraction, the nonlinear natural frequency is increased. In resonance analysis, by depicting the frequency response curves, it is observed that by increasing internal damping coefficient the amplitude is decreased and the loci of the bifurcations is changed. Also carbon nanotube distribution and average volume fractions of them on the solution and bifurcations have an important effect. Also, it is seen that by decreasing the external force, the amplitude of the system is decreased and bifurcations occur in higher internal damping coefficients. An isotropic beam in the highest and a nano-composite beam in the lowest values of internal damping coefficients become completely stable.
