Technological change and metrology services medical metrology and its effects on society
Bükülmez, Evren; Taymaz, Erol; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2005)
Accuracy of measurements is one of the most vital issues for industry and society as a whole. In this context, medical devices create a significant impact on the costs of health care services, such as additional medicine treatments, longer hospital stays, etc. The main aim of this thesis is to analyze and explain the use of metrology services and the socio-economic impact of medical metrology on consumers in Turkey. A framework for economic impact assessment of the calibration services for three specific me...
Technology acceptance: a meta-analysis of the theoretical models
Sevim, Anıl; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2015)
Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) has been among the most pervasive models which attempted to elucidate the dynamics of technology acceptance. The constructs of both TAM and its operative successors including TAM2, TAM3 and UTAUT (Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology) have been tested through several primary studies, however, the question is that there exists a limited number of secondary studies which aim the assessment of construct relationship variation among those primary studies. Through ...
Intelligent infrastructures: anatomy of the METU Campus
Ağırsoy, Ömer Faruk; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2022-2-02)
Designed and constructed with the ambition of generating “a small city” in the 1960s, Middle East Technical University (METU) Campus is facilitated with a sophisticated infrastructural design. This thesis focuses on the complex infrastructural systems, needs, and problems of the campus. The goal is to re-investigate the university campus as an early model for modern, sustainable, and liveable urban environments. This thesis provides documentation and representation of campus infrastructure from campus scale...
Technological properties and conservation problems of some medieval bricks and tiles
Dinçer, Ayşe Şenay; Saltık, Emine Nevin; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2012)
The aim of this study is to examine the technology of the relatively deteriorated historic tile, brick and mortar samples of Sivas Gök Medrese and Tokat Gök Medrese. Their main deterioration factors were analyzed mainly as salt weathering. It was examined in detail, and the possible desalination methods were discussed. For this purpose, the studies were carried out with a field survey and laboratory experiments on the two sites. Documentation of visual decay forms of Tokat Gök Medrese were done with AutoCAD...
