Abstract: A novel method is presented for deriving the Gruneisen formulations of three classical Gruneisen models. Unlike past studies which have attempted to differentiate between these Gruneisen models on the basis of Poisson ratio arguments, the current approach employs elementary vibration analysis to reach its conclusions. The current approach provides a physical insight into how the models? underlying assumptions are responsible for the analytical distinctions between the models.
