Abstract : The temperature dependence of the elastic constants was measured with high precision for NaCl, KCl, KBr, CsCl, CsBr and CsI and for the solid solution series KCl-KBr in the temperature range 25C to 400C. In the solid solution series KCl-KBr the general trend of the elastic constants versus composition was in agreement with theory but indicated that the dependency on interionic distance is greater than theoretically predicted.
