Bilayer graphene sheets (BLGSs) are currently receiving increasing attention. In this paper, the vibration characteristics of BLGSs are investigated using analytical and atomistic finite element approaches. Various possible scenarios, namely different geometrical configuration (armchair and zigzag), boundary conditions and aspect ratio are considered in the present study. The dynamic characteristics of BLGS studied have shown dependence on aspect ratio and the boundary conditions. The unique vibrational properties and large stiffness of BLGS identified in the present work, makes them a suitable candidate for manufacturing nano sensors, electromechanical resonators also will aid the nano materials research community to design nano devices
