.... For very large aspect ratios, a nanotube is found to behave like a flexible macromolecule which tends to fold due to vdW interactions between different parts of the carbon nanotube. This suggests a shell-rod-wire transition of the mechanical behavior of carbon nanotubes with increasing aspect ratios. While...
