Finite Element Analysis of Multi-walled Nanotubes
There are two types of nanotubes: single-walled nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multiwalled nanotubes (MWCNTs), which differ in the arrangement of their graphene cylinders. SWCNTs have only one single layer of graphene cylinders; while MWCNTs have many layers (approximately 2–50).
