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....
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...
Modelling, transient simulation and parametric study of parabolic trough collector with thermal energy storage
Akba, Tufan; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Baker, Derek Keıth; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, a mathematical model of a parabolic trough collector field with a two-tank molten salt thermal energy storage is developed. The model is built in TRNSYS and by using MatLab, novel valve and thermal energy storage control algorithms are implemented. The model is sensitive to transient states inside the components and variations in weather and demand. Optimum parabolic trough collector length is determined for different insolation values to show the relation between direct normal insolation an...
