      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In the present investigation we have explained the thermal and compression properties of HCP iron (Fe) at high pressure with variable temperature (isobars) and at high temperature with variable pressure (isotherm). The usual Tait equation of state is modified by incorporating the effect of thermal pressure. The calculated values of pressure for different isotherms and isochors and thermal expansivity (𝛼) as a function of both temperature and pressure have been compared with those values obtained by Isaak et al and Wasserman et al.

    • Structural phase transition and elastic properties of thorium pnictides at high pressure

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In the present paper we have pointed out the weaknesses of the approach by Aynyas et al [1] to study the structural phase transition and elastic properties of thorium pnictides. The calculated values of phase transition pressure and other elastic properties using the realistic and actual approach are also given and compared with the experimental and previous theoretical work.

    • Equation of state for inert gas solids

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The equation of state is a fundamental relation to analyse the thermophysical properties of different class of solids and it plays a key role in basic and applied condensed matter physics research. A lot of work has been done in the field of ionic solids, minerals and metals but a very little work is done in the field of inert gas solids. Most of the equations of state failed to explain the properties of inert gas solid because of their abnormal behavior in the low temperature range. In the present paper, Singh–Gupta equation of state has been used to study the properties of these solids. The results obtained using these equations have shown a good agreement with available experimental results. Thus it is shown that these equations of states successfully explain the behavior of inert gas solids.
