Buckling and Postbuckling Analysis of Multi-/Walled Carbon Nanotubes Based on the Continuum Shell Model

He, Xiaoqiao; Qu, Chuan-Yong; Qin, Qing Hua; Wang, C.M.


Buckling and postbuckling behaviors of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) under a compressive force are studied. MWCNTs are modeled by Donnell's shallow shell nonlinear theory with the allowance of van der Waals (vdW) interaction between the walls. It is shown herein that the buckling load decreases while the buckling strain increases as the innermost radius of MWCNT increases. For the postbuckling behavior, the shortening-load curves show an initial steep gradient that gradually level up...[Show more]
