Isotropic elastic properties of minerals


The bulk elastic properties of a material determine how much it will compress under a given amount of external pressure. This page provides thedensity, bulk moduli, shear moduli, and elastic velocities of various minerals. There are numerous ways to measure mineral moduli. The most obvious is by deforming single crystals. Alternatively, elastic velocities can be measured and moduli extracted for zero porosity aggregates.
