Abstract : This final report outlines research in physical acoustics performed in the Physics Department of John Carroll University during the period 1 December 1974 to 30 November 1983. The overall goals of this research and the various projects conducted are outlined. The latter included studies of fluids in the vicinity of the critical point; studies of thermal phonon propagation in single crystals; acoustic impulse generation, propagation and scattering studies; and basic research and development work on fiber optic acoustic sensor systems. Also included in this report are a list of publications resulting from the contract research and a list of graduate students who participated in the program, including the titles of their theses.
