Materials at Low Temperatures
Many scientific-technological advances depend critically on solid-state elastic properties, their magnitudes, and their responses to variables like stress and temperature. This chapter provides the definitions and descriptions of elastic constants and emphasizes five aspects of engineering-material solid-state elastic constants: general properties; interrelationships; relationships, especially thermodynamic to other physical properties; changes during cooling from ambient to near-zero temperature; and near-zero-temperature behavior.
