The aim of this paper is to investigate the free and forced axial vibrations under the two various linear and harmonic axial concentrated forces in zigzag single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT). Two different boundary conditions, namely clamped-clamped and clamped-free, are established. Eringen's nonlocal elasticity is employed to justify the nonlocal behavior of constitutive relations. The governing equation and the associated boundary condition are derived based on Hamilton's principle. In order to solve the derived equation numerically, the assumed modes method is utilized. In the free axial vibration section, the first three natural frequencies are obtained for the various values of the nonlocal parameter. The results are in good agreement in comparison with another study. The fundamental natural frequencies with respect to the nonlocal parameter of the case study as a semiconducting nanotube with boron nitride nanotube (BNNT) as a semiconducting nanotube and SWCNT (5,5) as a metallic nanotube are compared. The effects of the nonlocal parameter, thickness and ratio of the excitation-to-natural frequencies overtime on dimensional and nondimensional axial displacements are studied.
