article description
We present our results of design of a new model of fullerite-based material with ultrahigh mechanical stiffness closely related with experimental data. In this study, we investigated the nature of enhanced mechanical characteristics (i.e. bulk modulus) and establish the relation between geometrical parameters of the model, which allows the estimations of potential conditions for fabrication of superhard material with outstanding mechanical properties. The atomic structure of proposed fullerite-based nanocomposite was analyzed and mechanical properties as a functions of geometrical characteristics were examined in details.
