Abstract

Abstract. Molecular dynamics simulations were used to study properties of graphene and single walled carbon nanotube. The formulation of the Tersoff bond-order potential was used to investigate the structural properties and thermodynamics properties of these two carbon polymorphs through a range of temperature. The structural properties were studied using the radial distribution functions effects and the thermodynamics effects were studied using the energy-temperature and volume-temperature plots. Similarities and differences in graphene and carbon nanotubes are discussed.
