The mechanical properties of the single graphene membranes were studied by classical molecular mechanics (MM) simulation method. The graphene membranes of various diameters from 38 Åto 140 Å were calculated, and Young's modules were estimated. Graphene membranes with different concentration of vacancy defects were studied.
