This annual report details progress in basic research in thermoacoustic heat transport made during the report period. Five projects are discussed: an experimental study of edge effects in thermoacoustic couple measurements, the application of porous media techniques to thermoacoustic prime mover, development of a non-boundary layer, non-short stack model for the power output of the thermoacoustic prime mover, the study of the transition to steady state oscillation in a thermoacoustic prime mover above onset of self- oscillation, and the study of energy distribution and dissipation in finite amplitude standing waves. A publications, patents, presentation, and honors report is also included
