Gökbulut, Alev
The aim of this thesis is to investigate an alternative mode of transportation for METU and the impacts of spatial transformations generated by the proposed system in an architectural context. This study embraces modern concepts of space-time in the practice of architectural design, and involves a sensitive consideration of the perception of space relative to position, speed and movement. In an urban context, the thesis unfolds spatial transformations affected by new movement technology. While the notions of movement and speed fundamentally shape the image of the contemporary city, METU campus will be reanalyzed within this framework.

Numerical prediction and experimental investigation of fretting fatigue crack initiation at railway axle - wheel contacts
Gürer, Göksu; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2017)
The aim of this thesis is to develop a procedure based on the multi-axial fatigue theories that can be used at the design stage for minimizing fretting fatigue failures of the railway axles. The premature fretting fatigue failure of the press-fitted wheel-axle assembly was investigated by means of mechanical and metallurgical methods. First, the loading path obtained through finite element analysis was implemented into the stress-based multiaxial fatigue models to predict possible sites of crack initiation....

A green touch for the future of distance education
Gündoğan, Mihraç Banu (2012-06-07)
This paper aims to draw attention to the sustainability of distance learning in terms of the design process based on learner characteristics and technology usage. Distance learning has become a cyberized system owing its presence to developments in digital technologies. Technological developments solve some immediate problems but also have the risk of leading to even greater ones. To 'sustain' is not only about keeping up, supporting or maintaining continuity but also is about nourishing, cultivation and ac...

Harmonic response of large engineering structures with nonlinear modifications
Kalaycıoğlu, Taner; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2011)
During the design and development stages of mechanical structures, after each modification made in order to satisfy design criteria, dynamic characteristics of the structure change and should be determined through reanalyzing the structure dynamically. Due to the significance of computational time and cost in design processes, it is inevitable for structural modification methods, especially for large systems, to become involved in predicting the dynamic behavior of modified structures from those of the orig...
