Abstract : The speed of sound in several liquids has been measured as a function of temperature between 0 and 40C. Data are given for DB castor oil, FC-45 (a fluorinated hydrocarbon), DC 200/.65 (a silicone fluid), Robane, Robalene, Robuoy (organic hydrocarbon fluids), octyl and acetate, and Coolanol-35 (a Freon-type fluid). The compatibility of these liquids with the more commonly used transducer elastomers has been measured. (Author)
