Abstract. We propose continuum models for simulation of carbon nanotube based electromechanical switches.
Mechanical behavior of a single wall nanotube has been modeled by a continuum model parameterized by using
molecular dynamics simulations. By coupling the continuum mechanical and electrostatic models, electromechan-
ical analysis of a single wall nanotube is performed to compute the pull-in voltage.
Keywords: single wall carbon nanotube, NEMS, pull-in voltage, molecular dynamics, continuum theory
