Lattice-theory of alkaline earth carbonates - Part IV. Elasticity constants of calcite
The electro-static parts of the elasticity constantsc11,c22 andc33θ are calculated by the same method as used for aragonite. The nature of the ‘repulsive’ forces is further completely determined by comparison with the observed value ofc11. The value ofc33θ is then determined and found to agree well with the experimental value.
