Keywords: armchair and zigzag graphene, electromechanical effects, finite element method.
In this paper, we consider a two dimensional graphene sheet with armchair and zigzag edges. We investigate the influence of temperature on the in-plane oscillations of the strain tensor in this graphene. We show that the in-plane oscillations of the strain tensor are enhanced with temperature.
