A miniature and non-resonant vibration-based energy harvester structure
Zorlu, Ozge; Külah, Haluk (Elsevier BV; 2012-09-12)
This paper presents a miniature and non-resonant vibration based electromagnetic (EM) energy harvester, which generates energy from low frequency and low amplitude vibrations. The structure combines a MEMS-based coil realized on a parylene cantilever, and a miniature NdFeB magnet, resulting in a small sized EM harvester prototype with a strong magnetic part. The magnet is attached to a moving platform, whereas the coil is fixed to a stationary base. The mechanical frequency up-conversion (mFupC) technique i...

The heterogeneous nature and the mixture rules of concrete result in complex behavior at different domain levels as micro, meso and macro scales. Cracks evolve randomly from the micro to the macro level and result in nonlinear response of structures. Predicting the nonlinear response of concrete is directly related to the performance assessment of reinforced concrete (RC) structures, which is becoming more important, given the observed of aging infrastructure and the need for sustainability. Strength and de...

This study presents the design and analysis of a novel hybrid trailing edge control surface that is capable to perform both camber and decamber morphing. The design was conducted with CATIA V5-6R2012 package program. Structural analyses were performed with Finite Element Method by using ANSYS® Workbench™ v14.0 package program both in in-vacuo condition and under aerodynamic loading. The aerodynamic loads were calculated by Computational Fluid Dynamics analyses. The required aerodynamic mesh was generated by...
A three component force transducer for reinforced concrete structural testing
Canbay, Erdem; Tankut, T (Elsevier BV, 2004-01-01)
The design, manufacture and calibration of two special force transducers, capable of measuring the axial force, shear, and bending moment at the base of a structural column are presented. The special force transducers were fabricated to measure the reactions at the base of the exterior columns of a reinforced concrete three-bay, two-story test specimen. The force transducers had the following capacities: 35 kN for axial load, 4 kN for shear, and 3 kN in for bending moment. These values include a safety fact...

A conducting polymer modified with sepiolite was utilized in the construction of a highly sensitive and fast amperometric cholesterol biosensor. In this study a monomer; (10,13-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)dibenzo[a,c]phenazine (PHED)) was synthesized and then its polymer was coated on a graphite electrode by electropolymerization to obtain a matrix for enzyme immobilization. Cholesterol oxidase was immobilized onto polymer coated electrode by adsorption technique. Sepiolite was introduced f...
