Molecular mechanics simulations for graphene bending rigidity are reported through calculations of the strain energy for graphene sheets subjected to a point loading. The rigidity is found to be dependent on the size and the shape of graphene sheets. Moreover, dependence of the rigidity on the deflection is found. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
