A Calculation of the Bulk-Modulus of Polycrystalline Materials

It is shown that the bulk modulus of a polycrystalline material, composed of cubic single crystals, is the same as that of the constituent single crystal. The bulk modulus of the aggregate is independent of the distribution of the individual single crystals. The same results apply also to other poly...
