Kashan University Researchers to Enhance Nano-Robots’ Arms Design

Scientists at the University of Kashan are working on determining mechanical and physical characteristics of carbon and nitride-Bohr nanotubes in an attempt to enhance the design of the nano-robots’ arms.

Several types of stability of the multi-walled carbon nanotubes in a flexible environment are one of the significant issues to be considered in the turning motion of the robotic arms around a robot’s rigid point or joint.

Dr Ali Qorbanpour Arani, Lecturer at the University of Kashan, has stated that their research is based on the Pasternak model that takes into account the impact of shear forces applied on the two-walled carbon nanotubes by the flexible environment. He mentioned that the mechanical and physical  characteristics of the carbon and nitride-Bohr nanotubes can be used not only to design the nano-robot’s arms but also to handle rotary and kinetic motion of the robot’s neck and arm.

Qorbanpour Arani said that nanotubes are generally learnt in a flexible environment for determining the forces experienced by them. Therefore the researchers utilize Winker model to study vertical forces and Pasternak model to study both vertical and shear forces, enabling them to obtain accurate outcomes.
