|Title:||Modeling the auxetic transition for carbon nanotube sheets|
|Abstract:||A simple model is developed to predict the complex mechanical properties of carbon nanotube sheets (buckypaper) [L. J. Hall et al., Science 320, 504 (2008)]. Fabricated using a similar method to that deployed for making writing paper, these buckypapers can have in-plane Poisson's ratios changed from positive to negative, becoming auxetic, as multiwalled carbon nanotubes are increasingly mixed with single-walled carbon nanotubes. Essential structural features of the buckypapers are incorporated into the model: isotropic in-plane mechanical properties, nanotubes preferentially oriented in the sheet plane, and freedom to undergo stress-induced elongation by both angle and length changes. The expressions derived for the Poisson's ratios enabled quantitative prediction of both observed properties and remarkable new properties obtainable by structural modification.|
