Abstract : Research on nonlinear acoustics was carried out during the period 1 August 1984-31 December 1995. Most of the work was done as masters and doctoral research projects in one of the following general areas: nonlinear ocean acoustics; propagation; reflection, refraction, interaction, and scattering; medical ultrasonics; and miscellaneous. The research led to five master's degrees and five doctorates (including one in progress at the end of the grant) among seven students. Other participants were a postdoctoral fellow, tour visiting faculty members from other universities, and a visitor from a Canadian naval laboratory. Among public disclosures of the research were 17 journal articles (of which two are not yet published), 10 papers in conference proceedings, 6 book chapters, 39 papers presented orally at national and international meetings, 9 theses and dissertations, and 18 technical reports.
