Abstract

First-principles calculations were employed to study the mechanical properties for the recently proposed tetragonal B₄CO₄ (t-B₄CO₄). The calculated structural parameters and elastic constants of t-B₄CO₄ are in excellent agreement with the previous results, indicating the reliability of the present calculations. The directional dependences of the Young's modulus and shear modulus for t-B₄CO₄ are deduced in detail, and the corresponding results suggest that the t-B₄CO₄ possesses a high degree of anisotropy. Based on the strain-stress method, the ideal tensile and shear strengths along the principal crystal directions are calculated, and the obtained results indicate that the shear mode along (001)[100] slip system dominates the plastic deformation of t-B₄CO₄, which can be ascribed to the breaking of the ionic B-O bonds. The weakest ideal shear strength of 27.5 GPa demonstrates that the t-B₄CO₄ compound is not a superhard material, but is indeed a hard material. Based on the atomic explanation that the ternary B-C-O compounds cannot acquire high ideal strength, we propose two possible routes to design superhard B-C-O compounds.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 February 2017.
All research outputs
#5,491,561
of 9,727,924 outputs
Outputs from Materials
#463
of 1,531 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#177,550
of 316,127 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Materials
#127
of 242 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,727,924 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,531 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 316,127 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 242 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
