Elastic and Plastic Deformation of Carbon Nanotubes

by Hiroyuki Shima and Motohiro Sato

"There has been great interest and research activity in the recent past on carbon nanotubes in the fields of physics, chemistry and engineering. Nevertheless, if nanotubes are to be widely used in the future, it is critical that engineering designers can obtain their mechanical properties and determine their behaviour under external loads. This monograph provides an excellent and comprehensive digest of the state of the art and will allow greater use of these fascinating components in a wider range of applications."
