We introduce a new and general criterion for melting as an alternative to the commonly used Lindemann criterion. Nanostructures are modeled using a zipper model and the melting process is assumed to start from the outer layer and develop towards the center layer. Melting occurs when the logarithm of the partition function per number of layers is zero. The equation shows good consistency with experimental data for the melting of thin films, nanoparticles, and nanowires. We also introduce a degree-of-freedom parameter which seems to be universal for most metals.
