In this article, the wave propagation behavior of a size-dependent laminated composite cylindrical nanoshell in a thermal environment is presented. The small-scale effects are analyzed based on nonlocal strain gradient theory (NSGT). The governing equations of the cylindrical laminated composite nanoshell in a thermal environment were obtained using Hamilton’s principle and solved by the analytical method. The novelty of this study is considering the effects of the composite layers and NSGT in addition to considering the thermal environment of the cylindrical composite nanoshell. Finally, the investigation was performed on the influence of temperature difference, wave number, angular velocity and the different types of laminated composite on the phase velocity using the mentioned continuum mechanics theory. The results show that wave number, ply angle, shear correction factor and thermal environment play an important role on the phase velocity of the laminated composite nanostructure. Another significant result is that, in a specific temperature difference, there is an inverse relation between the number of layers in a laminate and the dynamic behavior of the nanostructure. The outcome of the present work can be used in a structural health monitoring and ultrasonic inspection techniques.
