In this study, the elastic constants of a titanium diboride (TiB2) single crystal were measured using resonant ultrasound spectroscopy. In contrast to previous work, the current results are consistent with the measured elastic constants of TiB2 polycrystals. In addition, the crystal anisotropy of TiB2 was examined. The current data show that the elastic properties of TiB2 are much more isotropic than previously considered.
