Figure 4.41 The variation of the average energy per atom as a function of the bending angle for a (15, 0) SWCNT with a length of 12.87 nm [23].

Figure 4.42 A comparison of the bending buckling deformations obtained with (A) atomic simulation and (B) the mesh-free method for a (15, 0) SWCNT with a length of 12.87 nm [23].

The above examples show that the higher-order Cauchy–Born rule can precisely catch the constitutive response of CNTs and that the mesh-free method is an efficient numerical tool for modeling and predicting the mechanical behavior ...
