Using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, we explore the effects of body defects on the elastic and plastic properties of Cu nanowires along <100>, <110> and <111> crystallographic orientations under tension, respectively. Such a body defect is a vacuum sphere localized at the center of nanowire with a radius changing from 1.80 to 10.83 Å. Our calculations illustrate that body defects have a litt ...
