Using ultrasonics, MnCu20Ni5Fe2 (M2052) alloy's acoustic characteristics were observed in order to understand its high damping properties. Longitudinal and shear wave velocities, eight kinds of elastic parameters, and dilational and shear internal frictions were simultaneously measured as functions of temperature in cooling and heating runs between 218 and 373 K in M2052 alloy. A valley in Young and shear moduli, Debye temperature and internal friction peaks at around 345 K showed a M2052 fcc/fct transformation, accompanied by volume-nonpreserving lattice softening. The increment of dilational friction in the low temperature can be interpreted as boundary effect of the misfit domain, associated with nonharmonity of potential between pairs of atoms. The M2052 alloy shows highest elasticity below 300 K, indicating large resistance for volume-preserving distortion.
