What’s carbon nanotubes (CNTs) 3 Building blocks – beyond molecules ME 599 (Nanomaufecturing) lecture notes, Fall 2009, Intstructor: A.J. Hart, University of Michigan
Exceptional properties of CNTs National Academy of Sciences report (2005), http://www.nap.edu/catalog/11268.html and many other sources High Young’s modulus ~1 TPa 4
CNTs kink like straws 5 Yakobson et al., Physical Review B 76 (14), 1996. High recoverable strains and reversible kinking Kink shape develops! Seiji et al., Japan Society of Applied Physics, 45 (6B): 5586-9, 2006.
Types of buckling of CNTs –Euler ‐ type buckling general case –hollow cylinder –shell buckling short or large ‐ diameter CNTs We are interested in Euler-type buckling Buckling problem of CNTs 6
From a recent research paper… 7 Seiji et al., Japan Journal of Applied Physics, 44(34): L1097-9, 2005. E ~ 0.8 TPa (a) 20 Shells d outer = 14.7 nm d inner = 1.3 nm L = 1.19 µm F cr = 24.5 nN (b) 6 Shells d outer = 14.7 nm d inner = 10.3 nm L = 1.07 µm F cr = 24.0 nN Euler-type buckling! Boundary Condition: Clamp – free

Potential – it decides the way atoms interact with each other Tersoff Potential is used for this simulation It is a multi body potential, consisting of terms which depend on the angles between the atoms as well as on the distances between the corresponding atoms (bond order potential) Selected due to its applicability to covalent molecules and faster speed of computation compared to other potentials Parameters used in simulation 18
Frame-like structure Primary bonds between two nearest- neighboring atoms act like load-bearing beam members Individual atom acts as the joint of the related load-bearing beam members FEA using Abaqus 19
