In this study, the vibration behaviors of porous nanotubes are investigated for the first time. The nonlocal strain gradient theory in conjunction with a refined beam model are employed to formulate the size-dependent model. It is presumed that the porous nanotubes are made from functionally graded materials, and the material parameters of nanotubes relate to temperature variation and vary continuously in the radial direction. Employing a refined beam theory which includes the effects of transverse shear deformation, the equations of motion are derived based on Hamilton's variation principle and solved by the Navier solution method. Some comparisons are presented to valid the correctness of present solution method. The effects of the nonlocal parameter, strain gradient parameter, temperature variations, porosity volume fraction and material variation on the vibration characteristic of the nanotubes are discussed in detail.
