... to be 61.9917 GPa/nm in Ref. 7 and 99.1867 GPa/nm in Ref. 32 . In fact, van der Waals forces are a kind of weak interactions between atoms that are not directly bonded together in the same molecular. In the present work, C is estimated as the second derivative of the van der Waals energy-interlayer...

... are drawn in Sec. 6 . At the microscale and beyond, graphite can be adequately modeled as a homogeneous continuum solid ( 1 ). In contrast, at the lattice level, it is a stack of graphene sheets of carbon atoms covalently bonded within a basal plane but weakly bonded by Van der Waals forces between...

... by taking the MWCNT as a whole beam, the current shell model can find the resonant frequencies of three modes being classified as radial, axial, and circumferential for each nanotube of a MWCNT. Big influences from the small length scales and the van der Waalsforces are observed. Among these, noteworthy...

... the thermal buckling behavior of multi-walled carbon nanotubes. The multi-walled carbon nanotubes are considered as concentric thin shells coupled with the van der Waals forces between adjacent nanotubes. Closed form solutions are formulated for two types of thermal buckling of a double-walled carbon nanotube...
