Abstract

This research deals with investigation of nitrogen doping on the mechanical behaviors and thermal conductivities of pure and nitrogen doped carbon nanotubes using molecular dynamics simulation technique. The effects of various loading conditions including different strain rates as well as several temperatures on the mentioned properties of the considered nanomaterials are studied in detail. The results reveal that nitrogen doping can reduce the ultimate strength and thermal conductivities drastically depending on their concentrations in the nanostructures.
