Abstract : Research on nonlinear acoustics has been performed during the 12-month period ending 30 September 1995. Progress is reported on the following projects: (1) Self-refraction in the field of a paraboloidal reflector (experimental), and (2) Two-ellipsoid system to enhance cavitation collapse (experimental). Public communication of the research includes one thesis, one oral paper, two journal articles submitted, and two technical reports.
