Carbon nanotube via LAMMPS code

I can make graphene sheet by LAMMPS code. Can anyone give me any idea how to manipulate “Graphene code” to generate carbon nanotube by LAMMPS.
I tried to make solid graphene cylinder and then delete atoms to make CNT. But results were not that good.
Regards.

I woudn’t use LAMMPS for that, but rather VMD + topotool. The protocol for creating a single carbon nanotube is described here. In short:

  • Open VMD, go to Extensions, Modeling, and then Nanotube Builder.
  • Click on Generate Nanotube.

Then to make the LAMMPS data file, type:

topo writelammpsdata cnt_molecular.data molecular

in the VMD terminal, where molecular corresponds to the LAMMPS atom_style you want.

Hey Shafayet,

Can you share LAMMPS code or tutorial link to generate the graphene sheet
