Mechanical Behaviors of Carbon Nanotubes: Theoretical and Numerical Approaches presents various theoretical and numerical studies on mechanical behaviors of carbon nanotubes. The main theoretical aspects included in the book contain classical molecular dynamics simulation, atomistic-continuum theory, atomic finite element method, continuum plate, nonlocal continuum plate, and shell models. Detailed coverage is also given to structural and elastic properties, trace of large deformation, buckling and post-buckling behaviors, fracture, vibration characteristics, wave propagation, and the most promising engineering applications. This book not only illustrates the theoretical and numerical methods for analyzing the mechanical behavior of carbon nanotubes, but also contains computational results from experiments that have already taken place. Covers various theoretical and numerical studies, giving readers a greater understanding of the mechanical behavior of carbon nanotubes Includes multiscale methods that provide the advantages of atomistic and continuum approaches, helping readers solve complex, large-system engineering problems Allows engineers to create more efficient carbon nanotube structures and devices
