We have formulated an expression for the temperature dependence of thermoelastic constants using the thermodynamic identities. It is found that all elastic moduli decreased with increasing temperature. Thus computed results using the present models show a better agreement with available experimental results. It is concluded that new expressions can also predict the elastic behavior of the Earth’s minerals under high-temperature conditions and are used in geophysical applications.
