A DOMAIN-BOUNDARY ELEMENT METHOD, based on modified couple stress theory, is developed for transient dynamic analysis of functionally graded micro-beams. In-corporating static fundamental solutions as weight functions in weighted residual expressions, governing partial differential equations of motion are converted to a set of coupled integral equations. A system of ordinary differential equations in time is ob-tained by domain discretization and solved using the Houbolt time marching scheme. Developed procedures are verified through comparisons to the results available in the literature for micro-and macro-scale beams. Numerical results illustrate elasto-dynamic responses of graded micro-beams subjected to various loading types. It is shown that metal-rich micro-beams and those with a smaller length scale parameter ratio undergo higher displacements and are subjected to larger normal stresses.
