The longitudinal, transverse and torsional wave dispersion curves in single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) are used to estimate the non-local kernel for use in continuum elasticity models of nanotubes. The dispersion data for an armchair (10,10) SWCNT was obtained using lattice dynamics of SWNTs while accounting for the helical symmetry of the tubes. In our approach, the Fourier transformed kernel of non-local linear elastic theory is directly estimated by matching the atomistic data to the… CONTINUE READING
