Hi Mike-

I’m not sure exactly what you need, but de Jong et al (2015) have reported calculated elastic properties that can be quite helpful.  The reference is:


You may find it easier to access the data by using the Materials Project:


MP has a nice set of APIs that allow you to pull the data directly for whatever you may want to do computationally.
