In this paper, several elastic moduli of single-walled carbon nanotubes are simulated numerically. The dynamic response and their mutual interaction forces among atoms of the nanostructures subject to small-strain deformation are based on the Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. Both force and energy approaches are used to predict the elastic moduli under different deformation modes. Comparison of the elastic constants with available experimental and simulation results is made.
