In this study, we examine variation of the thermal expansion alpha(p) with the isothermal compressibility k(T) at various temperatures (1 atm) close to the alpha-beta transition in quartz using the experimental data from the literature. We obtain the pressure dependence of the thermal expansion for dry granite quartz at room temperature. Variation of alpha(p) with the kappa(T) is also studied as a function of temperature for constant pressures of 0.1, 100, 200 and 300 MPa close to the alpha-beta transition of dry granite quartz. Our results show that volumetric expansion increases as functions of temperature (1 atm) and pressure (room temperature), as observed experimentally for dry granite quartz.
