This paper reports the elastic constants of the Ni-base single crystal superalloy (TMS-26) with a rafted (lamellar) structure having tetragonal symmetry. The elastic constants have been measured at room temperature with the resonance ultrasound spectroscopy method and the mode-selective electromagnetic acoustic resonance method. The value of the elastic constant c33 (250.4 GPa) is almost equal to that of c11 (252.5 GPa), which indicates that the rafted structure virtually has the elastic anisotropy of cubic system.
