Structural properties of beta-Fe2O3 nanorods under uniaxial strain have been investigated by performing molecular dynamics simulations at different temperatures. Two different atomistic potential energy functions (PEFs) were used to make a comparative study. It followed from our results that the PEF used to model a given material was rather significant; different PEFs would give rise to different characteristics for the same material.
