On the Buckling and Vibrational Response of Carbon Nanotubes with Spiral Deformation
MetadataShow full item record
Perfect and spiral models of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been simulated based on the finite element method and their vibrational and buckling behavior has been investigated. In order to evaluate their natural frequency and critical buckling load, computational tests have been conducted. It has been concluded that the existence of any geometrical modification in the configuration of perfect CNTs results in a remarkable reduction in the natural frequency and critical buckling load of CNTs. It has been also revealed that the analytical solutions are in good agreement with the finite element simulation results in the cases of perfect and spiral CNTs.
