where E is the elastic modulus of coal, [K.sub.f] is the bulk modulus of fracture, [K.sub.s] is the bulk modulus of matrix, [K.sup.f] is the normal stiffness of fracture, [F.sup.i] is the body force of element, usually is gravity, and [[epsilon].sub.L] and [P.sub.L] are the Langmuir adsorption strain and pressure constants.

The Helmholtz resonators in [11] are arranged orthogonal to the propagation direction of the sound in the waveguide and the structure is successfully achieved negative effective bulk modulus. From transmission line concept, the equivalent circuit of a Helmholtz resonator is given by an LC circuit with no dissipation.
The formula between bulk modulus, shear modulus, and elastic constant [C.sub.ij](i, j = 1~6) under the Voigt and Reuss model is as follows [19, 20]:
where [K.sub.s] represents bulk modulus for coal-rock mass matrix; the first and second terms of equation (1[degrees]) are volume change of solid due to change of water pressure and effective stress, respectively.
However, during the exploitation of deep geological resources, parameters of the rock, such as rock bulk modulus and Biot coefficient, will change due to the change of temperature and pressure, thus leading to the numerical simulation results deviate from the true value if we ignore these features [25].
The results displayed in Table 1 show that the bulk modulus decreases from 13% up to 28% in comparison with the single crystal, for grain diameter ranging, respectively, from 6.7 down to 2.7 nm.

The surface energies, work function, bulk modulus, elastic constants, and electronic state density of seven basic alpha uranium surfaces were calculated and the results are presented in Section 3.
From (4), it can be seen that the bulk modulus K of the blood can differ by more than [10.sup.3] more than the arterial wall's Young's modulus (E).
Our analysis shows that extended elastic impedance (EI_30deg ), velocities ratio and saturated bulk modulus are best direct hydrocarbons indicaotrs as compared to remaining and help to differentiate the reservoir fluids.
