Effect of high temperature and the presence of stone-wales defects on the mechanical behavior of a single wall carbon nanotube under tension and compression.


On the basis of molecular dynamics simulation, a zigzag (7, 0) SWCNT is examined under axial tension and compression to observe its mechanical behavior and fracture pattern in the absence and presence of Stone-Wales (SW) defects coupled with the variation of temperature. A defect-free tube is subjected to tensile or compressive stresses at different… (More)
