  3. Abstract:
  4. In this paper, the scattering of anti-plane shear waves in an infinite matrix containing a multi-coated nanofiber/nanotube is studied. Based on the fact that the surface to volume ratio for nano-size objects increases, the usual classical theories which generally neglect the surface/interface effects fail to provide reasonable results. Therefore, to analyze the problem the wave-function expansion method is coupled with the surface/interface elasticity theory. In order to provide some quantitative results through consideration of several examples, the knowledge of the relevant surface and/or interface properties of the corresponding constituent materials are required. For this reason, part of this work is devoted to the development of the method of calculation of these properties. Subsequently, the surface shear modulus and residual stresses of several fcc materials as well as interface shear modulus and residual stresses of some fcc-fcc bicrystals are computed. For determination of these parameters a molecular dynamics program which uses Rafii-Tabar and Sutton interatomic potential function is addressed. In numerical calculations, the essential role of surfaces and interfaces in nano-scale is well approved
