Bending behaviour of single-layered graphene nanosheets with vacancy defects

Marko Canadija, Marino Brcic, Josip Brnic

Abstract


The paper at hand deals with the single layered graphene sheets. In particular, the influence of the vacancy location and the density of vacancies on the bending behavior are investigated. The nanomechanical model is based on the structural mechanics approach with covalent bonds modeled as beam finite elements. The used graphene sheet model is described in detail and the obtained results are presented and thoroughly discussed.
