The paper presents temperature behavior of the splay and bend elastic constants measured for n-hexyloxycyanobiphenyl and n-octyloxycyanobiphenyl mixtures - a system exhibiting the re-entrant nematic phase. It was shown that singularities in the elastic properties of the system concern not only the nematic phase (the well-known pre-smectic effects) but first of all - the smectic A phase, in which the splay and bend deformations, normally not allowed for the layered structures, can be induced.
