In this study, large elastic deflections of beams have been investigated using the theory of nonlocal elasticity. Fundamental equations have been derived for large elastic deflections and small strains in the frame of nonlocal elasticity and the solution has been made by the perturbation method. It has been observed that the difference between large elastic local and non-local deflections and moments grows significantly as the (Formula presented.) ratio increases (γ is nonlocality parameter, L is length of beam).
