What are the appropriate values of Young's modulus and wall thickness of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs)?

Damodara Reddy's picture

Hi All, Simulations and experimental results show the wide range of values for Young’s modulus (0.5 to 5.5 TPa) and wall thickness (0.066 to 0.34 nm) of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in literature. Most of the published results say that the set of values (Young’s modulus and wall thickness of CNT) are 1 TPa  and 0.34 nm, and the product is around 0.34 TPa-nm. In my point of view this set of values may be appropriate for multi-walled carbon nanotubes. Can we use the same set of values for analysis of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs)?  The interlayer distance between the graphene layers is 0.34 nm. Can we use this value as wall thickness of SWCNT or do we need to use atomic thickness instead of 0.34 nm?

Is ther eany relationship between the CNT chirality (m,n) or diameter with the nonlocal elastic coefficient (e0a)  wher a = C-C bond length
