The effect of filling carbon nanotubes on the mechanical, especially bending, behavior of empty and filled (10,10) carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is examined using classical, atomistic, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. In particular, influences of different filling materials like C60 or other CNT and different temperature are considered. The bending force and the deflection are investigated using the second generation reactive bond-order (REBO) potential.
