Elastic constants and thermodynamic properties of zinc blend Ni are calculated using a molecular dynamics simulation based on Tersoff empirical interatomic potential. We find that the elastic modulus C44 is in good agreement with the theoretical calculations and experiment while C12 is around 3% bigger and C11 is around 35% bigger than the other theoretical and experimental data. Thermal expansion coefficient, specific heat capacity at constant volume and thermal conductivity are in very good agreement with experimental data.
