After Monetization: The New Recording Landscape for Artists

Description: This case study examines some perspectives on the recording industry, particularly as it relates to musicians navigating the new landscape heavily impacted by digital service providers. The study begins with an investigation of digital streaming models and continues by surveying traditional record labels in light of advancements in the digital realm. The reader then encounters the company ArtistShare, which offers recording artists a chance to cultivate relationships with a close circle of patrons, in contrast to the global, less personalized reach of streaming media. The case concludes with consideration of what the industry presents to a performer committed to a musical niche.

Getting on Board with National Sawdust

Description: This case study examines the inner-workings of the board of directors of National Sawdust, a contemporary music venue, during the organization’s infancy. In August 2016, the board determined that one of its chief priorities for the year ahead was expanding its membership from 18 to 25 directors. The study reveals expectations of National Sawdust’s board members and issues around recruitment and accountability.

At the Core: Contract Negotiations at the Hartford Symphony Orchestra

Description: This case profiles the Hartford Symphony Orchestra (HSO), which serves residents in the state of Connecticut and southern Massachusetts and represents one of the largest orchestras in New England. Several unique elements of its organizational structure are revealed, before focusing on a set of contract negotiations that hinge on its “core” of 33 members.

No Place Like Home: The Industry at a Crossroads

Description: The case study details the early success of The Industry, free from the shackles of a permanent space, and unfolds the three-year strategic plan to guide the enterprise. Amid plans for continued operations, the executive director of The Industry is presented with the opportunity to hold a residency at a new museum in Los Angeles, one very much in line with the opera company’s contemporary cachet. This study outlines the prospects of the proposed museum residency, but questions at the board level remain about how an organization that has grown up without a home base for productions should react to the chance to forge a relationship with an institution that could bolster—or hinder—its success.

Shielding Against Gamma Rays, Neutrons, and Electrons From Nuclear Weapons: A Review and Bibliography

Description: Report discussing the problem of predicting dose rates and of estimating the effectiveness of shielding from radiations resulting from nuclear explosions. A number of calculations and supporting experiments regarding the penetration and diffusion of gamma rays, neutrons, and electrons through air and bulk materials are summarized. Indications are given of gaps in such input information. A selection of 485 references from the unclassified literature is presented, of which 388 are cataloged as to source geometry and energy, absorber material and configuration, type of data presented, and method of calculation or experimental technique. These cataloged references include radiation field studies ranging from the point-source infinite-medium situation up through such complicated geometries as foxholes, shelters, and conventional structures. The other references are of a general or review nature or contain input spectral data.

Microbial actinomycete population studies in lacustrine substrates

Description: The discovery of the production of antibiotic materials by certain members of the Actinomycetales has stimulated the study of these organisms over the last two decades, raising them from a position of little significance to one of noticeable importance. These studies include investigations concerning the physiology and biochemistry of the actinomycetes.

Personnel Problems in Foremanship: Case Studies

Description: The purpose of this study is to supply additional case material for analysis and study by the potential and beginning foreman. Since it would be impossible to cover all possible situations, only selected cases are presented. The selected cases illustrate problems in foreman-to-employee relationships, foreman-to-foreman and staff-groups relationships, and foreman-to-superior relationships. In the interest of clarity, each case was analyzed as to key points covered or contained, principles illustrated by the case, and recommendations derived from the analysis.

Heat Capacity Lag in Gases

Description: Note presenting a review of the literature on the sonic studies of the problem of the excitation of molecular vibrations by collision. The theory on which the interpretation of almost all the sonic work has been based is discussed rather qualitatively in some detail. Results concerning techniques, principal experimental programs, and an interpretation of the results are provided.

Flight measurements of the vibrations encountered by a tandem helicopter and a method for measuring the coupled response in flight

Description: Report presenting a discussion of flight-test and analysis methods for some selected helicopter vibration studies. The analytical methods described are based on the determination of the power spectral density of the force and of the response due to the force through use of analog frequency-analysis technique. Results regarding the coupled response with wood blades, coupled response with metal blades, comparison between flight and ground tests, comparison of flight results with theory, suggestions for refined flight-test technique, and natural-vibration measurements are provided.

Flight and analytical methods for determining the coupled vibration response of tandem helicopters

Description: Chapter one presents a discussion of flight-test and analysis methods for some selected helicopter vibration studies. The use of a mechanical shaker in flight to determine the structural response is reported. A method for the analytical determination of the natural coupled frequencies and mode shapes of vibrations in the vertical plane of tandem helicopters is presented in Chapter two. The coupled mode shapes and frequencies are then used to calculate the response of the helicopter to applied oscillating forces.

Visualization of rotor tip secondary flows with blade tip air discharge and suction in a low-speed turbine

Description: Smoke was used to visualize outer-wall secondary flows in a low-speed turbine utilizing rotor tip air discharge and suction. Photographs as well as visual observations of the effect of tip air discharge and suction were made by independently varying the direction and quantity of the tip air discharge and suction, and varying tip clearance, and main-stream air speed. In addition, the cross-sectional area of the hollow blade discharge opening was varied for the case of tip air discharge.

Description: Report presenting visual-flow studies made of the behavior of the vortices which form in the separated flow region in the lee of an inclined body of revolution. Generally, the configuration of vortices in the wake could be changed by varying the position of the crossflow separation lines along the sides of the body. Results regarding the effects of body expansion, effect of body cross-sectional asymmetry, Reynolds number effects, and effects of vortex configuration on body forces are provided.

Preliminary investigation of molybdenum disulfide-air-mist lubrication for roller bearings operating to DN values of 1 x 10(exp 6) and ball bearings operating to temperatures of 1000 degrees F

Description: The effectiveness of molybdenum disulfide MoS2 as a bearing lubricant was determined at high temperature and at high speeds. A 1-inch-bore ball bearing operated at temperatures to 1000 F, a speed of 1725 rpm, and a thrust load of 20 pounds when lubricated only with MoS2-air mist. A 75-millimeter-bore cageless roller bearing, provided with a MoS2-syrup coating before operation, operated at DN values to 1 x 10(exp 6) with a load of 368 pounds.

An analog study of the relative importance of various factors affecting roll coupling

Description: From Introduction: "In this study wide variations in many of the pertinent aerodynamic were investigated at subsonic and supersonic speeds. The effects of large changes in principal axis inclination and mass distribution are also included. The primary purpose of this paper is to summarize the information obtained from the analog calculations and to compare the results with the trends predicted from a slightly modified version of reference 2."
