    • Abstract


      The structural parameters, elastic constants and thermodynamic properties of Ti2SC were investigated under pressure and temperature by using first-principles plane-wave pseudopotential density functional theory within the generalized gradient approximation. The obtained results are in agreement with the available experimental data. The bulk moduli along the 𝑎- and 𝑐-axes, $B_{a}$ and $B_{c}$, almost linearly increase with pressure, and the former is always smaller than the latter. The ratio of $B_{c}/B_{a}$ has a trend of gradual increase as the pressure increases. It is found that the elastic constants, anisotropy and Debye temperature of Ti2SC increase with pressure, while axial compressibility along the 𝑎- and 𝑐-axes decreases with pressure. The thermal properties including the equation of state, the Grüneisen parameter 𝛾, the anisotropies $\Delta_{p}, \Delta_{S1}$ and $\Delta_{S2}$, and the heat capacity are estimated at various pressures and temperatures.
