Molecular dynamics is employed to study the mechanical behavior of graphene nanoribbons with clamped edges under in-plane strain. Buckling of nanoribbons results in the appearance of periodic ripples whose orientation, wavelength, and amplitude can be controlled by varying strain components and nanoribbon width. This study shows a way of controlling physical properties of nanoribbons by introducing strain-induced ripples.
