Abstract

The object of this inquiry is to examine the relation between plane wave sound velocities in cubic crystals and the elastic constants of such crystals. Leading directly into this an extensive treatment of the classical theory of elasticity as it pertains to the cubic system. An application of the results will be made by detailing a means for obtaining the elastic constants of plastic single-crystals from measurements of velocity made on poly crystalline specimens.
