Unit

Explanation

Growth direction

 

The growth direction of the bulk crystal.

The list box in CrysMAS offers three possibilities

  • isotrop

    The anisotropy of the crystal will not take in to account.

  • <100>

    The growth direction of the crystal is <100>.

  • <111>

    The growth direction of the crystal is <111>.

Thermal expansion

1/K

The thermal expansion coefficient of the material.

Stress coefficient - c 11

Pa

The elastic constant (Cartesian) of the material.

Stress coefficient - c 12

Pa

The elastic constant (cartesian) of the material.

Stress coefficient - c 13

Pa

The elastic constant (Cartesian) of the material.

Stress coefficient - c 22

Pa

The elastic constant (cartesian) of the material.

Stress coefficient - c 23

Pa

The elastic constant (cartesian) of the material.

Stress coefficient - c 33

Pa

The elastic constant (Cartesian) of the material.

Stress coefficient - c 44

Pa

The elastic constant (Cartesian) of the material.

  1. Place the cursor in the phase column of the property that you want to change.

  2. Type respectively overwrite the value.

  3. Click on Apply or press the Enter key and continue with the next property.

    or

    Click on OK to apply the changes and to close the dialog.
