Usage of solar-spouted bed drier in the drying of parboiled wheat, corn and pea
Tunaboyu, Ferihan; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Department of Food Engineering (2010)
The main objective of this study was the application of solar energy for drying of parboiled wheat, corn and pea. Drying experiments were performed under open sun and also in the solar-spouted bed drier in which air heated by solar energy was used. The effects of these drying methods on drying rate and quality parameters were investigated for drying of parboiled wheat, corn and pea. The quality parameters evaluated were color, shrinkage, bulk density, apparent density, bulk and internal porosity, microstruc...
Seismic hazard assessment for the North Anatolian and San Andreas faults based on random field models
Akkaya, AD; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (1999-12-15)
The North Anatolian fault (NAF), located in northern Turkey and California's San Andreas fault (SAF) show remarkable similarities. A random field model, developed by the authors (Akkaya & Yucemen 1996) is utilized to compare the seismicity characteristics of the two faults on a statistical basis. The seismic hazard model is based on the level-crossing theory of random fields and considers the space-time correlations simultaneously and explicitly through the use of spatial and temporal scales of fluctuation....
The Rise of Ottoman İzmir as a commercial center
Atik, Tuğçe; Tülüveli, Güçlü; Department of Middle East Studies (2014)
This thesis aims to study external and internal factors which contributed to the rise of İzmir as one of the most important commercial city of the Ottoman Empire from the seventeenth century onwards. In this study, it is argued that beside the political and economic changes took place in the Ottoman Empire, transformations in the world economy affected the rise of İzmir port.
Modelling and performance analysis of linear fresnel collector for process heat generation for ice cream factory in Konya
Singh, Rahul; Baker, Derek Keıth; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, a linear Fresnel collector has been designed to supply solar heat for industrial process. Firstly, optical analysis using ray tracing is done to determine the effects of collector’s parameters, such as height of receiver, mirror width and profile, gap between adjacent rows and slope deviation. Afterwards, one-dimensional thermal model is presented which predicts surface temperatures of receiver components and heat loss. The results obtained from both optical and thermal studies are then benc...
