Effective Structural Parameters of Armchair Carbon Nanotubes
Due to exceptionally high strength and stiffness, carbon nanotubes have been attracted as promising materials for the applications to many nanoscale devices such as the ultrahigh frequency actuators and sensors. In this study, a dynamic continuum modeling method is used to evaluate the effective structural parameters of the armchair single-walled carbon nanotubes. The effective structural parameters obtained by the present dynamic continuum modeling method are shown to be in very good agreement with the results computed by using the Young’s muduli reported in the existing references.
