Dynamics deflection analysis of nanoelectromechanical switches based on carbon nanotubes
Gu, YuanTong & Tan, Andy (2009) Dynamics deflection analysis of nanoelectromechanical switches based on carbon nanotubes. In Proceedings of the 13th Asia-Pacific Vibration Conference, University of Canterbury, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, pp. 1-7.
This paper aims to develop an effective numerical simulation technique for the dynamic deflection analysis of nanotubes-based nanoswitches. The nanoswitch is simplified to a continuum structure, and some key material parameters are extracted from typical molecular dynamics (MD). An advanced local meshless formulation is applied to obtain the discretized dynamic equations for the numerical solution. The developed numerical technique is firstly validated by the static deflection analyses of nanoswitches, and then, the fundamental dynamic properties of nanoswitches are analyzed. A parametric comparison with the results in the literature and from experiments shows that the developed modelling approach is accurate, efficient and effective.
