Anderson [4] later provided a justification of an expression of this form for the bulk modulus and noted that the elastic modulus would be approximately of the same form if the temperature dependence of Poisson's ratio could be ignored.
From those data, they then calculated the element's resistance to compression, a property called the bulk modulus.
