Abstract

Structural and equilibrium properties of armchair (cnt(12,12)) and two chiral (cnt(10,12) and cnt(12.10) carbon nanotubes are studied using classical molecular dynamics. The formulation uses the Tersoff potential under the NVT ensemble to study these properties. Structural properties are studied using the radial distribution and structure factor functions. The equilibrium properties are studied using the total energy against lattice parameter variation. Similarities and differences in cnt(12,12), cnt(10,12), and cnt(12,10) symmetries are discussed.
