Intramolecular junctions (IMJs) of carbon nanotubes hold a promise of potential applications in nano-electromechanical systems. However, their structure-property relation is still unclear. Using the revised second-generation Tersoff-Brenner potential, molecular dynamics simulations were performed to study the mechanical properties of single-walled to four-walled carbon nanotubes with IMJs under uniaxial tension. The dependence of deformation and failure behaviors of IMJs on the geometric...[Show more]
