Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) demonstrate unusually high stiffness, strength and resilience, and may become an ideal reinforcing material for new nanocomposites. However, much work has to be done before the potentials of CNT-based composites can be fully realized. Evaluating the effective material properties of such nanoscale materials is one of many difficult tasks. Simulations using molecular dynamics and continuum mechanics models can play significant roles in this development. Currently, the… CONTINUE READING
