Interpersonal Responsiveness as a Function of Self-Concept

Description: This study considers the relationship between scores on the "Experimental Draw-A-Group Projective Technique for Measuring Interpersonal Responsivenesss" (DAG), and self-concept as indicated by scores on the Tennessee Self Concept Scale (TSCS). The study assumes a significantly positive relationship between interpersonal responsiveness and self-concept. The study further seeks to establish sound empirical data to justify the use of the DAG scale in the research of self-concept.

The Development of Modern Solo Trumpet Literature as Traced through the Morceaux de Concours at the Paris Conservatory

Description: The purpose of this thesis is to give the reader an insight into the development of solo trumpet literature as well as to present historical information concerning the development of the trumpet and the effect it had on the literature written for that instrument. Only music originally written for trumpet will be considered as the many transcriptions of older music that now appears are not characteristic of the idiomatic writing for trumpet at that time.

Programming in Fortran M

Description: Fortran M is a small set of extensions to Fortran that supports a modular approach to the construction of sequential and parallel programs. Fortran M programs use channels to plug together processes which may be written in Fortran M or Fortran 77. Processes communicate by sending and receiving messages on channels. Channels and processes can be created dynamically, but programs remain deterministic unless specialized nondeterministic constructs are used. Fortran M programs can execute on a range of sequential, parallel, and networked computers. This report incorporates both a tutorial introduction to Fortran M and a users guide for the Fortran M compiler developed at Argonne National Laboratory. The Fortran M compiler, supporting software, and documentation are made available free of charge by Argonne National Laboratory, but are protected by a copyright which places certain restrictions on how they may be redistributed. See the software for details. The latest version of both the compiler and this manual can be obtained by anonymous ftp from Argonne National Laboratory in the directory pub/fortran-m at info.mcs.anl.gov.

Flow studies in the asymmetric adjustable nozzle of the Ames 6-by 6-foot supersonic wind tunnel

Description: Report presenting surveys of the flow of the asymmetric adjustable nozzle of the 6- by 6-foot supersonic wind tunnel, which were made to determine the uniformity of the air stream. Test techniques for minimizing the effects of stream irregularities and the results of force and pressure-distribution tests of a swept-wing model are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of these techniques.

Aerodynamic study of a wing-fuselage combination employing a wing swept back 63 degrees : effectiveness at supersonic speeds of a 30-percent chord, 50-percent semispan elevon as a lateral control device

Description: Report presenting the effectiveness of a 50-percent-semispan, constant-percent-chord elevon, and of upper-space spoilers as lateral control surfaces for a wing-fuselage combination with a wing swept back 63 degrees over a range of Mach numbers. For the elevon, results indicated that only about half of the predicted rolling-moment effectiveness was realized. The spoilers were found to be inferior to the elevons for lateral control because of a rapid loss of effectivness above an angle of attack of 4 degrees.

Aerodynamic study of a wing-fuselage combination employing a wing swept back 63 degrees : effectiveness of an elevon as a longitudinal control and the effects of camber and twist on the maximum lift-drag ratio at supersonic speeds

Description: Report presenting an investigation concerned with the measurement of the characteristics of longitudinal-control devices for a wing-fuselage combination with a wing with the leading edge swept back 63 degrees. Most of the investigation was devoted to testing a 30-percent-chord, 50-percent-semispan elevon, but some used upper-surface spoilers. Results regarding the characteristics of the wing with the elevon undeflected and control-surface effectiveness are provided.

High-speed wind-tunnel tests of a 1/78-scale model of the Lockheed YP-80A airplane

Description: Report presenting an investigation to determine the high-speed performance and static longitudinal stability and control characteristics of a model of the Lockheed YP-80A airplane. High-speed aerodynamic characteristics are presented for speeds up to Mach number 0.96. Results regarding the scale effects, longitudinal stability, and longitudinal-control effectiveness are provided.

A systematic investigation of pressure distributions at high speeds over five representative NACA low-drag and conventional airfoil sections

Description: From Summary: "Pressure distributions determined from high-speed wind-tunnel tests are presented for five NACA airfoil sections representative of both low-drag and conventional types. Section characteristics of lift, drag, and quarter-chord pitching moment are presented along with the measured pressure distributions for the NACA 65sub2-215 (a=0.5), 66sub2-215 (a=0.6), 0015, 23015, and 4415 airfoils for Mach numbers up to approximately 0.85. A critical study is made of the airfoil pressure distributions in an attempt to formulate a set of general criteria for defining the character of high speed flows over typical airfoil shapes. Comparisons are made of the relative characteristics of the low-drag and conventional airfoils investigated insofar as they would influence the high-speed performance and the high-speed stability and control characteristics of airplanes employing these wing sections."

Wind-tunnel tests of a 1/12-scale model of the X-3 airplane at subsonic and supersonic speeds.

Description: Report presenting the static longitudinal-, lateral-, and directional-stability and control characteristics of a model of the Douglas X-3 airplane at subsonic and supersonic Mach numbers. The model was equipped with an all-movable horizontal tail, an aileron on the left wing, and a rudder on the vertical-tail surface.
