It is found that at low or room temperature, the fundamental natural frequency and critical flow velocity for the single-walled carbon nanotube increase as the temperature change increases, on the contrary, while at high temperature the fundamental natural frequency and critical flow velocity for the single walled carbon nanotube decrease as the temperature change increases.
