Title:Mechanics of Carbon Nanotubes: A Continuum Theory Incorporating Interatomic Potentials
Author(s):Zhang, Peng

Department / Program:Mechanical Engineering
Discipline:Mechanical Engineering
Degree Granting Institution:University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Degree:Ph.D.
Genre:Dissertation
Subject(s):Engineering, Mechanical
Abstract:The elastic modulus predicted by the proposed continuum theory is in good agreement with experimental and atomistic findings. It is also found that the critical strain at which instability occurs when a carbon nanotube is subject to tension is agreeable to that predicted by atomistic models.
