The norm of elastic constant tensor and the norms of the irreducible parts of the elastic constants of different compositions of alums (cubic systems) are calculated. The relation of the scalar parts norms and the other parts norms and the anisotropy of these alums are characterized. The norm ratios are used to study the isotropy and anisotropy of these alums.
Key words: Alums, Deuterated Alums, Isotropy, Norm, Anisotropy, Elastic Constants.
