Abstract : The topics covered under the program are reported under three major topic areas: Piezoelectric and Related Composites, Electrostriction, Phenomenology and Properties of Conventional Ceramic, and Piezoelectrics. A brief report is also given of related studies requires to support and supplement work on the three major areas, under the title Associated Programs. The year has seen major personnel changes at the Post-Doctoral and Graduate Assistant levels as befits a University based program and new personnel are now in place. The summer apprentice program under ONR sponsorship on this program has again given research opportunity to four upward bound high school students who joined Universities in Science and Engineering programs in the fall of 1987.
