Nobody performs better under pressure. Regardless of the task, pressure ruthlessly diminishes our judgment, decision-making, attention, dexterity, and performance in every professional and personal arena. In Performing Under Pressure, Drs. Hendrie Weisinger and J.P. Pawliw-Fry introduce us to the concept of pressure management, offering empirically tested short term and long term solutions to help us overcome the debilitating effects of pressure. Performing Under Pressure tackles the greatest obstacle to personal success, whether in a sales presentation, at home, on the golf course, interviewing for a job, or performing onstage at Carnegie Hall. Despite sports mythology, no one "rises to the occasion" under pressure and does better than they do in practice. The reality is pressure makes us do worse, and sometimes leads us to fail utterly. But there are things we can do to diminish its effects on our performance. Performing Under Pressure draws on research from over 12,000 people, and features the latest research from neuroscience and from the frontline experiences of Fortune 500 employees and managers, Navy SEALS, Olympic and other elite athletes, and others. It offers 22 specific strategies each of us can use to reduce pressure in our personal and professional lives and allow us to better excel in whatever we do. Whether you’re a corporate manager, a basketball player, or a student preparing for the SAT, Performing Under Pressure will help you to do your best when it matters most.

A cohort of 1056 normotensive, healthy, young men initially examined in 1940 at the mean age of 24 years was followed at three periodic intervals until 1964. The cohort demonstrated little change in mean systolic blood pressure beyond age 35; a portion of this cohort showed no rise of systolic blood pressure with age. If the men are classified according to systolic blood pressure in 1940, those men in the upper quintile tend to remain high; when classified by quintile in 1951, those men at the extremes maintained their relative position for the period of the study. Predictive utility of a systolic blood pressure may be a function of its actual level as well as the age of the individual. Two factors further influenced the systolic blood pressure of this cohort, namely parental longevity and weight gain independent of arm circumference. The effect of those factors separately and in combination changed as the cohort grew older. (Author).

Electronically scanned pressure modules have been developed that can operate in ambient and in cryogenic environments, particularly Langley's National Transonic Facility (NTF). Because they can operate directly in a cryogenic environment, their use eliminates many of the operational problems associated with using conventional modules at low temperature. To ensure the accuracy of these new instruments, calibration process by means of the simulation laboratory, the system inputs and outputs and the analysis of the calibration data. Calibration results of module M4, a wide temperature ESP module with 16 porst and a pressure range of +4 psid are given.

Measurements of mean flow profiles at several streamwise locations in a supersonic turbulent boundary layer growing under a continuous adverse pressure gradient are reported. Tests were performed at a freestream Mach number of 3, for an adiabatic wall, using two curved ramps designed to produce constant pressure gradient flows. The velocity profile data, when transformed to incompressible coordinates, are in good agreement with Coles universal 'wall-wake' velocity profile and they indicate that the boundary layer is in local equilibrium and essentially independent of upstream history. In addition, the Coles wake parameters and Clauser shape factors, characterizing the transformed profiles, are in accord with the results of low speed correlations of adverse pressure gradient flows. The turbulent transport terms were extracted from the mean flow field data and indicate that for a given ramp, the profile of turbulent shear stress normalized by the wall shear, versus distance from the surface, normalized by the local boundary thickness, is severely distored by the pressure gradient although it is apparently insensitive to local conditions.
