Abstract:

The speed of sound in several liquids has been measured as a function of temperature between 0 and 40C. Data are given for DB castor oil, FC-45 a fluorinated hydrocarbon, DC 200.65 a silicone fluid, Robane, Robalene, Robuoy organic hydrocarbon fluids, octyl and acetate, and Coolanol-35 a Freon-type fluid. The compatibility of these liquids with the more commonly used transducer elastomers has been measured.
