The behavior of nanodimensional bilayer structures (plates) of finite length consisting of nanometer-thick crystalline Ni and Cu films has been studied by means of molecular dynamics simulation. The inter-atomic interactions were described within the framework of the embedded atom method. It is shown that, in the absence of an external action, the nanostructures perform mechanical oscillations with the amplitude and frequency determined by the length and thickness of the plate. The dependence of the parameters of oscillations of the nanodimensional structures on their dimensions is established. The results can be used in designing components of nanodevices for various applications.
