Anisotropy of some FCC transition metals

The norm of elastic constant tensor and the norms of the irreducible parts of the elastic constants of FCC elemental transition metals Nickel, Copper, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Rhodium are calculated. The relation of the scalar parts norm and the other parts norms and the anisotropy of these elements are presented. The norm ratios are used to study anisotropy of these elements
