Abstract

For forty-one cubic symmetry elements and twenty-one hexagonal-symmetry elements, we give the complete monocrystal elastic-stiffness tensor Cijkl. and the mass densities, we derived other useful physical properties. First, we derived the elastic anisotropy. Second, we derived the quasiisotropic (polycrystal) elastic constants such as E = Young modulus, G = shear modulus, B = bulk modulus, C1 = longitudinal modulus, υ = Poisson ratio. Third, we derived the quasiisotropic sound velocities: longitudinal υ1, shear υ8, and means υm. Fourth, we derived a solid's most important single property: the Debye characteristic temperature θ, which relates theoretically or empirically to an enormous range of solid-state phenomena.
