In this paper the nonlinear elasticity solution of functionally graded nanocomposite rotating thick disks with variable thickness reinforced with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is presented. Four distribution types of uniaxial aligned SWCNTs are considered:uniform and three types of functionally graded (FG) distributions along radial direction of the disk. The effective material properties of the nanocomposite disk are estimated by a micro-mechanical model. The governing nonlinear equations are based on the axisymmetric theory of elasticity with the geometric nonlinearity in axisymmetric complete form. The nonlinear graded finite element method (NGFEM) based on Rayleigh–Ritz energy formulation with the Picard iterative scheme is employed to solve the nonlinear equations. The solution is considered for four different thickness profiles, namely constant, linear, concave and convex. The effects of different types of distributions and volume fractions of CNTs and various types of thickness profiles on the displacement and stresses of the rotating disks as well as comparison between linear and nonlinear responses are investigated. The achieved results show that the displacement and stress fields can be controlled by changing the type of distribution and volume fraction of CNTs as well as the thickness profile. Moreover, the difference between linear and nonlinear results are noticeable in high angular velocities; thus,for obtaining accurate results, the geometric nonlinearity must be considered.
