The paper systemizes numerous cubic crystals which can have both positive and negative Poisson’s ratios (the so-called partial auxetics) depending on the specimen orientation in tension. Several complete cubic auxetics whose Poisson’s ratio is always negative are indicated. The partial cubic auxetics are classified with the use of two dimensionless elastic parameters. For one of the parameters, a critical value is found at which the orientation behavior of the crystals changes qualitatively…

Negative Poisson's ratios as a common feature of cubic metals

Poisson's ratio is, for specified directions, the ratio of a lateral contraction to the longitudinal extension during the stretching of a material. Although a negative Poisson's ratio (that is, a
