Efffect of different control parameters on the mechanical strength of defected graphene sheet
What is it about?
This research work gives a comprehensive understanding of how STW defects affect the mechanical strength of mono layer graphene sheet at different strain-rate and temperature conditions.
Why is it important?
One of the key results of this work explains that STW-1 and STW-2 defected sheet, which tends to show anisotropic strength characteristics converge to a single breaking point value irrespective of the loading direction, as the temperature is lowered down to 1 Kelvin.This result can be very useful in industrial purpose as and when these defected sheets are used at such low temperature.Along with this a change in failure morphology was also observed , which acted as function of defect concentration and strain-rate respectively.
