Theoretical Strength of Metals and Intermetallics from First Principles
The state of the art of ab-initio calculations of the theoretical strength (TS) of materials is summarized and a database of selected theoretical and experimental results presented. Differences between theoretical and experimental TS values are discussed by assessing the stability conditions.
