Preface

The great discovery of carbon nanotubes has sparked an innovation in material science because of their superior physical, chemical, electronic, and mechanical properties. A good understanding of mechanical behaviors is a key factor for the usage of carbon nanotubes in practical engineering. Traditional experimental research can provide intuitive but rough awareness of mechanical behaviors of carbon nanotubes. Furthermore, experimental research unavoidably encounters challenges when entering into the nanoscale regime. Therefore, theoretical study plays an important role in this kind of nanomaterial.

This book originally states various theoretical and numerical studies for mechanical behaviors of a current hot research topic—carbon nanotubes—by ...
