A molecular dynamics simulation of carbon nanotube bundling via weak intermolecular interactions (van der Waals forces). A single degree of freedom "lollipop" model was implemented to improve the simulation efficiency. The simulation in the video represents 50 nanotubes 100 nm in length, over 1,000,000 integration steps.
