Abstract : A schedule of the work accomplished under the program is presented with relevant discussion. Data and details are provided in Appendices. The loss behavior of superconductors was examined for alternating fields superimposed upon fixed bias fields simulating the field conditions that might be observed in a machine. An extensive set of measurments on one practical superconductor has been completed, and measurements on several other conductors have been initiated. A parallel effort has been sustained to extend the theory of losses under these field conditions. (Author)
