Based on an explicit van der Waals (vdW) model, which can reproduce the interaction between any two layers of multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) and is dependent on the change of interlayer spacing and on the tube radii, the vibration analysis of multi-walled carbon nanotubes is carried out by using of the multi-layered Flugge shells model. The natural frequencies are analyzed in detail for with various radii and number of tubes. Furthermore, the natural frequencies of double-walled carbon nanotube with the innermost radii of 0.6 nm predicted based on the Flugge shell model are well compared with those from the Donnell shell one. The present investigation will be meaningful for the design and application of multi-walled carbon nanotubes as nano- resonators.
