Immobilization of proteins on zeolite and zeo-type materials for biosensor applications based on conductometric biosensors and ion sensitive field effect transistors
Soy, Esin; Akata Kurç, Burcu; Özen, Can; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2011)
Over the last decade, immobilization of proteins onto inorganic materials is becoming more crucial to extend a deep understanding of interaction between proteins and nanoparticles. With understanding of the real interaction lying under the protein-nanoparticle relations, it is possible to organize the conformation and orientation of surface and framework species of nanoparticles to generate ideal surfaces for potential biotechnological applications. Due to their unique properties such as large clean surface...
Çubukbeli Tunnel, classification systems, rock mass strength parameters, excavation and support systems, finite element analysis
Karahan, Ercüment; Bilgin, Hasan Aydın; Department of Mining Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, suggestion of appropriate excavation and support systems and selection of rock mass strength parameters for the determination of these systems were carried out for the Çubukbeli Tunnel in Antalya. Çubukbeli Tunnel is a twin tube flute shaped tunnel with 1985 m length, 12 m width, 10 m height and maximum overburden thickness of 130 m. The tunnel area consists of limestone, clayey limestone, claystone, marl and siltsone. Rock mass classification systems are used for evaluation of rock mass cha...
Effect of discontinuity roughness and anisotropy on shear strength
Denli, Alper Kaan; Karpuz, Celal; Department of Mining Engineering (2004)
Discontinuity surfaces generally consist of undulations termed as roughness. It is well known that surface roughness plays an important role on the shear strength and shear behavior of discontinuities. However, the effect of roughness will not be the same when the direction of shearing changes. This effect causes variation of shear strength with shearing direction or in other words anisotropy on shear strength. In this thesis, an experimental study was performed to investigate the effect of roughness and an...
Computer modeling of the initial cavern for Beypazari Trona ore on the basis of leaching rates, insoluble contents and thickness of trona layer
Tunçay Saygun, İlkay; Arol, Ali İhsan; Department of Mining Engineering (2008)
Trona ore located in Beypazarı is extracted by solution mining method with well pair connected by directional drilling technology. This thesis covers the determination of the dimensions of the initial (vertical) caverns formed in underground by use of a computer modeling (trademark: WinUbro/Poland) on the basis of horizontal and vertical leaching rates. The leaching rates were determined using the trona core samples from the ore deposit. The effect of insoluble content and the thickness of trona layer and s...
Comparative study on ground vibrations prediction by statistical and neural networks approaches at Tunçbilek coal mine, panel byh
Akeil, Salah; Bilgin, Hasan Aydın; Department of Mining Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, ground vibrations induced by bench blasting from the Tunçbilek Coal Mine, Panel BYH, were measured to find out the site-specific attenuation and to assess the structural damage risk. A statistical approach is applied to the collected data, and from the data analysis an attenuation relationship is established to be used in predicting the peak particle velocity as well as to calculate the maximum allowable charge per delay. The values of frequencies are also analyzed to investigate the damage ...
