The shear strain is related with torsion angle as J= RV , L where R is the radius of tube and L is its length. From continuum elastic theory, the total strain energy of a cylinder can be written as 1 E = G* 2 µµµ J dV , 2 where G is shear modulus of the tube. The torsion stiffness thus is related with G as K= 1 d 2E R3 U ( ) = G 2 h , L dV 2 L2 where h is the thickness of the wall of the nanotube. 1 eV A rod 2 for (5,5) and (10,0) CNTs. 2c. This is in good agreement with the prediction of cubic dependence from the continuum elastic theory.
