The pulse-phase method, the gamma-attenuation method and the method of dumping oscillation of a crucible with a melt were used for measuring the velocity of sound, the density and the kinematic viscosity of a set of liquid-metal coolants for perspective nuclear reactors. There are liquid gallium, indium, tin, lead, bismuth and lead-bismuth eutectic alloy among the melts investigated. The accuracy of the measurements was as high as 0.3%, 0.2 to 0.4% and 1.5% for the ultrasound velocity, the density and the viscosity, correspondingly.
