ABSTRACT
The elastic constants of polycrystalline Nb[sub 3]Sn were determined as a function of temperature when the samples were submitted to uniaxial tensile stress. The Young's (E) and shear (G) moduli were obtained from an ultrasonic pulse transmission technique in the range 4-300 K. Their behavior with temperature and applied stress is discussed in terms of the martensitic phase transformation occurring at ˜43 K and the ferroelastic character of the tetragonal phase (T < 43 K). Uniaxial tensile stress is found to stiffen the moduli at all temperatures by stabilizing the crystal structure and by progressively eliminating the domains in the tetragonal phase.
