ABSTRACT

To promote the design and development of CNT-nanocomposite materials, structure and property relationships must be recognized that predict the bulk mechanical of these materials as a function of the molecular and micro structure mechanical properties of nano structured materials can be calculated by a select set of computational methods. In this chapter, new trends in computational chemistry and computational mechanics for the prediction of the structure and properties of CNT materials are presented simultaneously.
