Using a bond order potential, molecular dynamics simulations have been performed to study the mechanical properties of ultrathin single-walled carbon nanotubes with or without junction under uniaxial tensile loading. The (3, 3) armchair and (5, 0) zigzag nanotubes have been studied. Topological defects in the junction region influence the mechanical properties of junctions.
