In order to develop a finite element model for a given nanotube, it is necessary to set few things. Geometry of the nanotube should be well understood. As discussed in the previous chapters, atomic coordinates in a nanotube structure should be determined. The atomic coordinates is the base of any atomic modeling. Bonding between atoms should be established with respect to the experimental observations. Chemical bonds will be replaced with a proper structural element. After creating the frame-like structure of the nanotube, we can apply boundary conditions and carry out the simulation process.
