The coordination numbers of transition metal atoms (Hf, Nb, Cr, Mo, W, Re, Ru, Rh, Os, Ir, Pt) are calculated using acoustic data from 0 K to temperatures close to boiling. It is concluded that the coordination numbers (CNs) of transition metal atoms are close to those of a body-centered cubic (BCC) structure (a CN of 8) in the solid phase and intermediate between BCC and simple cubic lattices in the liquid phase (a CN of 6).
