Tables of Acoustic Properties of Materials

We offer a comprehensive list of material properties for your reference. If you have any material properties that you would like to contribute, please contact info@ondacorp.com. Materials are listed in order of hardness. If there is an abbreviation in one of the tables you do not understand, be sure to check in the abbreviations listing.

The above list of tables open as pdf documents and require Adobe Acrobat Reader. Please click here to download the latest version of the Reader.

Also, both the Greek character font and Multinational Helvetica character font are available in compressed formats for download.

Supplemental Tables

Laust Pedersen has kindly offered to include his list of material properties here as well, and rather than take it apart and edit everything into these lists, we offer it as a stand alone spreadsheet (MS Excel file in zip-format, for download only).

We strive to foster ultrasound development and hope you find this information helpful.
