Altitude performance evaluation of J71-A-11 turbojet engine

Description: From Summary: "Data were obtained with five exhaust-nozzle areas and with the variable-area exhaust nozzle interlinked with the control system at conditions simulating flight at a Mach number of 0.8 and altitudes of 35,00 and 45,000 feet. Data simulating operation at zero flight Mach number at an altitude of 15,000 feet are also included. Engine component performance data are presented in addition to the overall engine performance."

Altitude Performance Characteristics of Tail-Pipe Burner With Converging Conical Burner Section on J47 Turbojet Engine

Description: From Introduction: "The effect of flame-holder and fuel-system design on the burner performance and the effect of altitude and flight Mach number on over-all performance with a fixed-area exhaust nozzle are reported in reference 1 to 4. Altitude performance characteristics of a tail-pipe burner having a converging conical burner section are presented in this report. Tail-pipe burner performance at several flight conditions is given in both tabular and graphical forms and compared with performance of the standard engine and of the tail-pipe burner reported in reference 2."

Altitude Performance Characteristics of the J73-GE-1A Turbojet Engine

Description: From Introduction: "The over-all altitude-performance characteristics of this engine are reported herein, and the component performance characteristics are given in reference 1. The data are presented in the form of engine pumping characteristics to allow accurate calculation of engine performance at any operating or flight condition within the range covered by the experimental data. A curve is also presented that will allow determination of thrust in flight by the measurement of ambient static pressure and total pressure in the exhaust nozzle."

An Assessment of Extant Euphonium Methodologies for Developing and Performing in the Upper Register

Description: This dissertation presents a categorization of existing methodologies of upper register development for euphoniumists with evaluation of effectiveness and current use of these methodologies. The purpose of this study is to provide euphonium musicians as well as educators with essential references and guides to applicable methods for developing the upper register more effectively with greater efficacy. The assessments of current methodologies include three steps: categorization, summarization, and evaluation. To support the significance why it could be more beneficial than the methodology alone, the dissertation will include the examination of the aspect of biomechanics and ergonomics, suggestions, and discussion of particular issues of the upper register.

Uncovering Aspects of Western and Indian Music in Vanraj Bhatia's Night Music for Solo Flute, and Selected Other Works

Description: Born in 1927 in Bombay, Vanraj Bhatia is an Indian composer of music for concerts, film, television, opera, meditation, and commercial jingles. His musical style is unique, stemming from his training in both Western and North Indian classical, or Hindustani, music. Little is known about Vanraj Bhatia in the Western classical world, and in India he is recognized primarily as a composer of film music. This dissertation aims to bring awareness of Vanraj Bhatia's significance as a Western classical composer, focusing on uncovering the cross-cultural influences of his only solo flute piece, Night Music, composed in 1964. This research offers Western flutists a better understanding of Indian music, specifically Hindustani and Indian folk music traditions, often not fully understood since Indian music is an aural tradition, rarely transcribed and notated, and relies on a guru/shishya (teacher/student) relationship. Such an understanding will elucidate the compositional choices made in Night Music, allowing flutists to be more informed in their performance of it. Although the focus of this study is on Night Music, other repertoire from Bhatia's concert music and film music will also be examined to illuminate Bhatia's compositional style, which includes elements of Hindustani music, Indian folk music, and Western musical traditions. An exploration of some of Bhatia's other compositions written for Western musicians will give readers beyond the realm of flutists a better understanding of his distinctive, cross-cultural style and influences, and will introduce larger audiences to this exceptional and little-known composer.

Compositional approaches within new media paradigms.

Description: "Compositional Approaches to New Media Paradigms" is the discursive accompaniment to the original composition BoMoH, (a new media chamber opera. A variety of new media concepts and practices are discussed in relation to their use as a contemporary compositional methodology for computer musicians and digital content producers. This paper aligns relevant discourse with a variety of concepts as they influence and affect the compositional process. This paper does not propose a new working method; rather it draws attention to a contemporary interdisciplinary practice that facilitates new possibilities for engagement and aesthetics in digital art/music. Finally, in demonstrating a selection of the design principals, from a variety of new media theories of interest, in compositional structure and concept, it is my hope to provide composers and computer musicians with a tested resource that will function as a helpful set of working guidelines for producing new media enabled art, sonic or otherwise.

An Argument in Favor of the Saxhorn Basse (French Tuba) in the Modern Symphony Orchestra

Description: The French tuba was a much-needed addition to the brasswind musical instrument family, adding depth, projection and a unique color to French orchestral literature. Its ancestors the serpent and ophicleide both lacked the tonal stability and sonic power to adequately present the bass wind role in a robust orchestra. Through the efforts of its developer and patent-holder Adolphe Sax, the French tuba made converts among players and composers, effectively creating its own niche in music history. Musical tastes change however, and the French tuba has been largely supplanted by tubists using instruments twice its size. Since French composers composed specifically with the distinct timbre of the French tuba in mind, this unique and characteristic musical entity deserves a resurgence in performances of French orchestral repertoire.
