Abstract : A comprehensive compilation is given of elastic properties of ironnickel alloys. When sufficient data exist, preferred values are recommended. This compilation covers, besides pure iron and pure nickel, the entire binary composition range, both b.c.c. and f.c.c. phases. Elastic constants included are: Young's modulus, shear modulus, bulk modulus (reciprocal compressibility), Poisson's ratio, and singlecrystal elastic stiffnesses, both secondorder and higherorder. Data are compiled for variation of elastic constants with composition, temperature, pressure, magnetic field, mechanical deformation, annealing, and crystallographic transitions. An overview is given from the vantage points of the electron theory of metals, elasticity theory, and crystallographic theory. Also included are discussions of isothermal and adiabatic elastic constants, interrelationships among engineering elastic constants, computation of the latter from singlecrystal elastic stiffnesses, and similar topics. Where key data have not been measured, they were generated if possible from existing data using standard formulae. Other gaps, both theoretical and experimental, in the elastic properties of ironnickel alloys are indicated. A few theoretical results are included where experimental data are nonexistent or scarce. A semantic scheme is proposed for distinguishing elastic constants of solids. (Author)
