Abstract
The present project considers the application of amorphous metals to underwater acoustic transducers and has been funded by the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic as part of the continuing program on the design and development of sonar transducers carried out by the Underwater Acoustics Section. This work falls into three major categories; the study of the application of Metglas-type amorphous metals to sonar projectors and hydrophones, experimental investigations of possible applications of these materials to acoustic transducers and the assembly and testing of the Mark VI Terfenol projector. This report summarizes the work conducted on the present project in these areas.
