Development of a blade to blade solver for axial turbomachinery
Bilgiç, Mustafa; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2015)
In this thesis, a blade to blade solver for axial turbomachinery is developed. Actual blade to blade surface is three dimensional but it is reduced to two dimensions. This simplification is valid only for the turbomachinery having high solidity. Two different approaches are used for the solution of the two dimensional Euler equations through blade to blade streamsurface. The first one includes the solution of the steady form of the two dimensional Euler equations. The characteristics of the steady Euler equ...
Development of an advanced composite external fuel tank for air platforms
Karahan, Uğurcan; Parnas, Kemal Levend; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
This thesis provides a design approach for an external fuel tank, which permits external mounting to the air platforms including rotorcrafts and aircrafts. The development stages include both a computational and an experimental study. In this thesis, unique combination of advanced composite material solutions is investigated in the structural design process. Filament-wound tank structure is modeled as multi-layered orthotropic structure. Various worst-case loading scenarios defined by internationally recogn...
Development of an ultra wide band (UWB) array antenna
Ceylan, Hasan Akın; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-4)
Demand for ultrawideband antenna arrays in telecommunications, space and airborne platforms, RADAR applications and MIMO systems, etc. is rising consistantly. A modern approach to develop an ultrawideband array is to utilize the mutual coupling between array elements. Even though individual elements are of narrowband characteristic in isolated form, they gain ultrawideband performance in array configuration under strong mutual coupling. In this work, an ultrawideband tightly coupled dipole array antenna is ...
Development of 100w portable fuel cell system working with sodium borohydride
Erkan, Serdar; Eroğlu, İnci; Department of Chemical Engineering (2011)
Fuel cells are electricity generators which convert chemical energy of hydrogen directly to electricity by means of electrochemical oxidation and reduction reactions. A single proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell can only generate electricity with a potential between 0.5V and 1V. The useful potential can be achieved by stacking cells in series to form a PEM fuel cell stack. There is a potential to utilize 100W class fuel cells. Fuelling is the major problem of the portable fuel cells. The aim of this th...
Development of a design method for subsonic intakes with improved aerodynamic performance and reduced radar signature
Ünlü, Tezcan; Eyi, Sinan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2021-9-2)
In this thesis, a design method for a subsonic intake with high aerodynamic performance and reduced radar signature is developed. Intakes are key components of aircrafts’ propulsion systems that create open ended cavities resulting in increased radar signature. To achieve reduced radar signature characteristics, a parameterized double curved intake is proposed. Due to the nature of this multi-objective and multi-disciplinary engineering problem, surrogate based analysis and optimization approach is taken to...
