On molecular-mechanical model rigidity Y-shaped carbon nanotube is investigated at stretching/compression deformation. It is established that deformation remains elastic only in limits from-3 % to 3 % of change of length of a Y-tube along a sym­metry axis. The rigidity factor (on a solution corner) for a Y-tube of a tube (6,6) doubled from one edge with a corner of a solution 112,5o, is equal 12,26 nN/grad. Thus, Y-tubes can serve as a strengthening composite of polymeric materials, and also probes of high rigidity in nuclear power microscopes.
