    Sonic cleaning has become an indispensable tool for the decontamination of critical or precision parts and assemblies. A practical knowledge of sonic cleaning is, therefore, an important factor in any decontamination or quality-control program, and begins with an understanding of cavitation. The basic energy of a sonic cleaning action results from this phenomenon. Cavitation can be generated in several ways; however, this report will be confined to that which is produced by a sound wave, usually termed acoustical cavitation.
