Study on the dynamics responses of a transmission system made from carbon nanotubes

Yin, Hang; Cai, Kun; Ning , Wei; Qin, Qing Hua; Shi, Jiao


A rotational transmission system from coaxial carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is investigated using a computational molecular dynamics approach. The system consists of a motor from a single-walled carbon nanotube and a bearing from a double-walled carbon nanotube. The motor has a high fixed rotational frequency and the two ends of the outer tube in the bearing are fixed. The inner tube in the bearing works as a rotor. Because of the interlayer friction in the bearing, configurations of the joint...[Show more]
