Abstract : This technical report describes progress building and testing a 'pin stack' during the period 01 June 1995 through 31 May 1996. The pin stack produced 18% higher acoustic pressures, reached onset at a 40% lower mean pressure, and was about 25% more efficient than a conventional rolled stack in a thermoacoustic prime mover. A publications, presentations, and honors report is also included.
