This paper examines the vibrational behavior of a clamped circular graphene sheet with and without a mass lying on it. For this reason, a springbased finite element (FE) model is formulated and utilized. Interatomic bonded interactions and the relative movements between carbon atoms are simulated via the use of appropriate spring elements expressing the corresponding potential energies provided by molecular theory. The formulated model represents the graphene sheet-additional mass system and is analyzed using FE procedures. The effect of design parameters as the graphene diameter as well as the additional mass magnitude on the vibration characteristics is investigated in order to predict the potential response of the circular graphene sheet as mass sensor.
