Abstract [en]

First-principles total-energy calculations were performed for the trigonal shear elastic constant (C-44) of body-centred cubic (bcc) V and Nb. A mechanical instability in C44 is found for V at pressures of similar to 2 Mbar which also shows a softening in Nb at pressures of similar to 0.5 Mbar. We argue that the pressure-induced shear instability (softening) of V (Nb) is due to the intra-band nesting of the Fermi surface.
