A typical TGC model. The red atoms at the tip of the innermost nanotube are loaded with a lateral force.
Comparison of the load vs deflection curves. (a) for a four-walled TGC with a cone apex angle of using four different vdW potentials, (b) for the three different TGCs, and (c) for different diameters of the innermost nanotube in a four-walled TGC with .
The deformed configurations of TGCs all at a same load level of . (a) a single-walled nanotube , (b) a four-walled TGC , and (c) an eight-walled TGC .
The stress vs strain curves at point on the innermost nanotube for the three different TGCs; the inset shows the position of point .
