Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have been a subject of interest for most of the researches after their discovery, due to their superior mechanical properties and ability to be used as the reinforcement phase of nanocomposites. The other carbon structure which was discovered a few years after the discovery of CNTs was Carbon Nanohorns (CNHs). The structure of CNH is cone-shaped compared to the cylindrical shape of CNT’s structure. This cone-shaped structure causes difficulties in finding the stress distribution on CNHs when placed in the matrix phase of nanocomposites. In this paper the governing differential equation of the stress distribution on the CNHs placed in the matrix phase of a nanocomposite is derived using some simplifying assumptions.
