The Effects of Complexity on Carbon Nanotube Failures
by Easttom, William (Chuck) Charles, II, Ph.D., Capitol Technology University, 2020, 165; 28148664
Abstract (Summary)

The current study explores the correlation between complexity and failures in carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes are widely used in bioengineering. The current study will expand upon a previous method for quantifying complexity. Correlation between the complexity level and failures in carbon nanotubes will be explored. Correlating complexity with carbon nanotube failures will facility both failure analysis, and possible failure avoidance. This approach can improve the production and management of carbon nanotubes, particularly those used in bioengineering.
