Graphene is the material for the twenty first century applications. In this paper, the elastic properties of monolayer and double layer Graphene sheets, typically less than 10nm in size are investigated through linear finite element simulations. The effect of aspect ratio, sizes and chirality of the Graphene sheet on the Young's modulus, Shear modulus and Poisson's ratio are studied. By using structural mechanics approach combining atomistic and equivalent continuum techniques, the Young's modulus, shear modulus and the Poisson ratio were found and they slightly increase with the aspect ratio but decrease with the size of the Graphene sheet. These simulated properties compliment the mechanical properties of Graphene found in literature. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
