An efficient hybrid modal-molecular dynamics method is developed for the vibration analysis of large scale nanostructures. Using the reduced order method, presented in this paper, linear and nonlinear vibrations of a suspended graphene nanoribbon (GNR) carrying an electric current in a harmonic magnetic field are investigated. The resonance frequencies as well as the nonlinear vibration response obtained by the present technique and direct molecular dynamic simulations are in very good agreement. Also, the obtained results illustrate the hardening behavior of nonlinear vibrations which is diminished by stretching the GNR.
