Title: Mechanical properties of nanosprings
Author: da Fonseca, AF
Galvao, DS
Abstract: Nanostructures (nanotubes, nanowires, etc.) have been the object of intense theoretical and experimental investigations in recent years. Among these structures, helical nanosprings or nanocoils have attracted particular interest due to their special mechanical properties. In this work, we investigated structural properties of nanosprings in the Kirchhoff rod model. We derived expressions that can be used experimentally to obtain nanospring Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio values. Our results also might explain why the presence of catalytic particles is so important in nanostructure growth.
