Buckling Analysis of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes with Consideration of Small Scale Effects
The effect of small scale and van der Waals forces between adjacent tubes on the column buckling of multi-walled carbon nanotubes are investigated. The governing equations for the aforementioned problems are derived using the nonlocal elasticity theory and Timoshenko beam theory. It is found that both small scale effects and van der Waals interaction depend on the length, radius, and buckling modes. In addition, it is shown that considering both of small length scale and van der Waals interaction into the analysis decrease MWCNTs buckling strain and increase the critical strain when the buckling mode is increased.
