Bulk Modulus of Copper Alloys in Context of Modern Metal Theory

Janusz Chrzanowski, Bohdan Bieg
2018 New Trends in Production Engineering  
The authors used a modern quantum theory allowing to determine the energy levels of electrons in real metal. Based on that analytical equations have been presented by means of which the bulk modulus for chosen metals were calculated. It should be emphasized that all values obtained directly from the derived equation are in perfect conformity with the experimental data, a few percentage differences are comparable with the potential measurement error. Subsequently a simple mathematical model has
