Elastic constants of silver as a function of temperature

  • A. Wolfenden
  • M. R. Harmouche


The temperature dependence of the elastic constants of silver single crystals has been determined over the range 300–1173 K with the piezoelectric ultrasonic composite oscillator technique (PUCOT). From a comparison of the present results with those available from the literature, it is deduced that the PUCOT and hence other standing-wave techniques are adequate for measuring compliances, but these techniques may have complications for computations of stiffnesses.
