Can ab initio crystal structure methods predict the structure of cuprates from their stoichiometry and quantify the brittleness of those materials?

Current ab initio methods may not be able to predict the electronic transport properties of cuprate superconductors but can they be used to predict their crystal structure? Furthermore those materials ...
