The approximately 1500 Cepheid variables in 22 LMC fields of the MACHO Project survey have been calibrated and analysed. In this paper, we report improved period ratios for a total of 73 beat Cepheids and provide a first look at the Fourier decomposition parameters for both singly- and doubly-periodic Cepheids. We also note an unusual amplitude-changing pulsator.
