The transversal vibration of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) containing water are investigated using both molecular dynamics simulations and continuum-based simulations. Different diameters for SWCNTs are considered. The fundamental frequencies of SWCNTs with or without water are obtained. The results show that the level of agreement between the frequencies from molecular dynamics simulations and those from continuum-based simulations depends on the radius and modulus of the SWCNT.
