Using the generalized-gradient approximation (GGA) based on density functional theory, we have reported the structural, mechanical, electronic, and lattice dynamical properties of the intermetallic compounds Pd3X (X = Ti, Zr, Hf) with D0(24) and the L1(2) structures. The elastic constants were predicted using the stress-finite strain technique. We performed numerical estimations of the bulk modulus, shear modulus, Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio anisotropy factor, G/B ratio, and hardness. Our studies have showed that all Pd3X (X = Ti, Zr, Hf) with D0(24) and the L1(2) structures are mechanically stable and relatively hard materials with low compressibility, and they could be considered as ductile systems. Also, the phonon dispersion curves and total and partial density of states were calculated and discussed for Pd3X (X = Ti, Zr, Hf). We finally estimated some thermodynamic properties such as entropy, free energy, and heat capacity at the temperature range 0-1000 K. The calculated phonon frequencies of Pd3X (X = Ti, Zr, Hf) are positive, indicating the dynamical stability of the studied compounds. For the first time, we have performed the numerical estimation of lattice dynamical properties for the compounds and still awaits experimental confirmation. The obtained ground state properties are in good agreement with those of experimental and theoretical studies.

The structural, mechanical and lattice dynamical properties of Ru2B3 and Os2B3 have been investigated by using a first-principles method based on the density functional theory within the generalized gradient approximation. The single crystal elastic constants are numerically estimated using strain-stress approach. The polycrystalline aggregate elastic parameters are calculated from the single elastic constants via the Voigt-Reuss-Hill approximations. Subsequently, the ductility and brittleness are character...

The lattice dynamical calculations have been performed on the L1(2)-type (space number 221) of intermetallic compound Rh3Hf using the ab initio density-functional theory within the local density approximation (LDA) and the generalized gradient approximation (GGA). Beside the basic physical parameters such as lattice constant, bulk modulus, elastic constants, shear modulus, Young's modulus, and Poison's ratio; the phonon dispersion curves and corresponding one-phonon density of states (DOS) are also calculat...

The pressure dependence of the Raman frequencies of the internal modes is analyzed (T = 300 K) for the phases i and theta of solid nitrogen using the experimental data from the literature. Through the mode Gruneisen parameter, the isothermal compressibility kappa(T), thermal expansion alpha(p) and the specific heat C-p - C-v are calculated as a function of pressure using the Raman data in these phases.

The mechanical and thermodynamical properties of Pd, Ag pure metals and especially PdxAg1-x alloys are studied by using the molecular dynamics simulation. The effects of temperature and concentration on the physical properties of PdxAg1-x are analyzed. Sutton-Chen (SC) and quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) many-body potentials are used as interatomic interactions which enable one to investigate the thermodynamic, static, and dynamical properties of transition metals. The calculated results such as cohesive energy,...
