I"m trying to reproduce the elastic constants for Aluminum. I downloaded the “VASP” package but I don’t think this is enough to reproduce the elastic properties.
Is there any means by which I can find out how the elastic properties were calculated? I downloaded the source materials but they did not seem sufficient/correct for elastic properties.
Can anyone point me to how I can reproduce the elastic modulus?
PS I have a general method set up on my end, but my results don’t agree with those of the materials project. Based on the literature, the materials project results seem more correct than my own, but I can’t seem to reproduce them…
