Abstract In this study, the elastic constants of a titanium diboride (TiB{sub 2}) single crystal were measured using resonant ultrasound spectroscopy. In contrast to previous work, the current results are consistent with the measured elastic constants of TiB{sub 2} polycrystals. In addition, the crystal anisotropy of TiB{sub 2} was examined. The current data show that the elastic properties of TiB{sub 2} are much more isotropic than previously considered. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}
