By the nonlocal theory, the nonlinear equations for double-layered nanoplates (DLNP) with different boundary conditions are established. The relation between aspect ratio and nonlinear frequencies with fixed mode amplitude is discussed. This relation for two vibration modes presents completely distinct trends. The novel fact is observed that there exists a point P where nonlinearity is weakest for the fundamental mode. Furthermore, we notice that P only appears for clamped movable edge when neglecting the nonlocal effect, which is substantially different from the other boundary conditions. It should distinguish whether the edge is movable or immovable for studying nonlinear dynamics of DLNP.
