Abstract/Summary This paper proposes a two-dimensional elastic shell model to characterize the deformation of singlewalled carbon nanotubes using in-plane stiffness, Poisson ratio, bending stiffness and off-plane torsion stiffness as independent elastic constants. It was found that the off-plane torsion stiffness of a single-walled carbon nanotube is not zero due to the off-plane torsion induced change in the p -orbital electron density on both sides of the nanotubes. It was concluded that a three-dimensional elastic shell model of single-walled carbon nanotubes can be established with well-defined effective thickness.
