Structural properties of silicene nanoribbons (SiNRs) of varying width have been investigated under 5% and 10% uniaxial strain via classical Molecular-Dynamics simulations at 1 and 300?K temperatures by the aid of atomistic many-body potential energy functions (PEFs). It has been found that under strain, SiNRs show such material properties: they are very ductile, with considerable toughness and a very long plastic range before fragmentation.
