A Numerical forced convection heat transfer analysis of nanofluids considering performance criteria
Kirez, Oğuz; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Kakaç, Sadık; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
A nanofluid is a new heat transfer fluid produced by mixing a base fluid and solid nano sized particles. This fluid has great potential in heat transfer applications, because of its increased thermal conductivity and even increased Nusselt number due to higher thermal conductivity, Brownian motion of nanoparticles, and other various effects on heat transfer phenomenon. In this work, the first aim is to predict convective heat transfer of nanofluids. A numerical code is created and run to obtain results in a...

Experimental investigation of single phase liquid flow and heat transfer in multiport minichannels
Altınöz, Mesru; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Baker, Derek Keıth; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013)
This thesis aims to experimentally investigate pressure drop and heat transfer characteristics of single phase water flow in rectangular minichannels. The small channels are an area of interest in heat transfer field since 1970’s owing to their enhanced heat transfer characteristics. However, the heat transfer and pressure drop characteristics of these channels are not fully established as there is a wide number of studies in literature showing inconsistent results with each other. In order to investigate t...
A macroscopic model for self-organized aggregation in swarm robotic systems
Soysal, Onur; Şahin, Erol (2006-10-01)
We study the self-organized aggregation of a swarm of robots in a closed arena. We assume that the perceptual range of the robots are smaller than the size of the arena and the robots do not have information on the size of the swarm or the arena. Using a probabilistic aggregation behavior model inspired from studies of social insects, we propose a macroscopic model for predicting the final distribution of aggregates in terms of the parameters of the aggregation behavior, the arena size and the sensing chara...
Numerical investigation of bubbling fluidized bed to be used as high temperature thermal energy storage
Hiçdurmaz, Serdar; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
A thermal energy storage unit designed to be used in a solid particle concentrated solar energy system is analysed with the help of a commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics tool. Hydrodynamics of the bubbling fluidized sand bed of which dimensions are 0.28 m x 1 m x 0.025 m to be used as direct contact heat exchanger are modelled and validated. Geldart B type particles with diameter of 275 micron and density of 2500 kg/m3 are used in modelling of bubbling fludized sand bed. Syamlal O’Brien drag model with ...
