The bulk modulus and density of the fluid change as the gas becomes trapped into the oil during the strut operation.
The grain size dependence of Young's modulus and the bulk modulus observed here in the case of a bcc metal (tungsten) can be related to studies that have given similar results for nanocrystalline fcc metals.
As presented in Table 1, the values of bulk modulus of our calculation are very close to experimental value (115 GPa).
