  • French Horn Evolution

    still highly limited in reaching its full musical potential. 1.3 Addition of valves The addition of valves around 1815 is arguably the most significant development in French horn technology. A crude piston valve system, known as the Stölzel valve, was developed around 1815 by Heinrich Stölzel and Friedrich Blühmel. In this system created by Stölzel and Blühmel, air entered through the bottom of the final valve in the sequence. The air would then travel either through an extended length of tubing (similar to a crook) or through a port in the valve casing to the top of the next valve in the sequence. The air would pass through the valve, where it could then enter the bottom of the next valve or continue through an extended length of tubing. Soon after the development of the Stölzel valve, Joseph Riedl invented the rotary valve in Vienna around 1832. In contrast to the piston valve system, the rotary valve system turned in a circle. A short circular plug is found inside of a cylindrical casing. The airflow is directed through ports in the valve when the valve is turned ninety degrees. 1.4 Single and Double French horns Single French horns, available in the key of F or Bb, only have three rotary valves and one layer of tubing. Double horns are essentially two horns, F, and Bb, combined into one with a fourth "trigger" valve added in order to switch in between the two sides. When pushed down, the trigger valve functions to change the key of the instrument from the key of F to…

  • Faucet Repair Case Study

    Before calling a plumber in Arlington, check the water pressure at other faucets. If the water pressure is low only at a single faucet, first ensure the shut off valve is open. Next, inspect the aerator for clogging due to hard water sediment. Soaking in vinegar and scrubbing with a soft brush should correct the problem. Otherwise, replace the aerator. While the aerator is off check the water pressure at the faucet. If low, a problem is affecting the faucet. Faucets receive significant use,…

  • Heat Transfer Lab Report

    Next, the arrow icon was clicked to begin measuring temperatures. After that, the water drain valve was closed tightly. Next, the water flow was set to 2 gpm, and the steam valves were opened. Flow rate oscillated up and down during the process of heating, so adjustment was required to maintain the desired flow rate. Then, temperatures were recorded if stabilization and no significant changes occurred. Next, the tubes were examined, and the transition between boiling and non-boiling heat…
