Graphene is a two-dimensional carbon based material. Remarkable mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of graphene make it as promising material for advanced applications; nevertheless, majority of its mechanical properties are still unknown. This research investigates buckling and bending behaviors of monolayer and multilayer armchair and zigzag graphene sheets. Bending stiffness, critical buckling force per unit length and critical strain of graphene sheets have been measured by molecular dynamic simulation method. Zigzag graphene sheet shows higher bending stiffness than armchair sheet. Van der Waals interaction between graphene sheets has an improving effect on the stability of middle layers. Cross-linkages reduce the buckling force per unit length and the buckling strain of multi layer graphene sheets.
