In this thesis, design of a car door window regulator is presented. This design comprises a mechanism in order that the car door window makes a specified translational motion. First, conceptual design is carried out to obtain the best suitable concept for the design and best suitable concept comes out to be a scissor mechanism. Afterwards, detailed design of the chosen concept is given. In the detail design stage, kinematic synthesis of the mechanism is performed basically using the Cardan motion. Lastly, implementation of the design on a car door is described.

Design of a mechanism for opening hatchback car baggage door
Duran, Yusuf; Söylemez, Eres; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, a new mechanism design for opening hatchback-car baggage door is introduced. Unlike the classical hinged doors used, this new design will include a mechanism so that the door will be opened vertically and thus occupy less space behind the car during the opening. In this fashion even the hatchback doors of closely parked cars may be opened. First, considering type synthesis, different mechanism types are investigated. In dimensional synthesis, with the help of Burmester theory, motion generat...
Computation of drag force on single and close-following vehicles
Örselli, Erdem; Çetinkaya, Tahsin Ali; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
In this study, application of computational fluid dynamics to ground vehicle aerodynamics was investigated. Two types of vehicle models namely, Ahmed Body and MIRA Notchback Body and their scaled models were used. A commercial software "Fluent" was used and the effects of implementing different turbulence models with wall functions were observed. As a result, an appropriate turbulence model was selected to use in the study. The drag forces, surface pressure distributions and wake formations were investigate...
Design and analysis of filament wound composite tubes
Balya, Bora; Parnas, Kemal Levend; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2004)
This thesis is for the investigation of the design and analysis processes of filament wound composite tubes under combined loading. The problem is studied by using a computational tool based on the Finite Element Method (FEM). Filament wound tubes are modeled as multi layered orthotropic tubes. Several analyses are performed on layered orthotropic tubes by using FEM. Results of the FEM are examined in order to investigate characteristics of filament wound tubes under different combined loading conditions. W...
Experimental Investigation of Aerodynamic Interactions of Vehicles in Close Folowing and Passing Situations
Gümüşlüol, Ünsal; Çetinkaya, Tahsin Ali; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
In this Thesis study, aerodynamic interactions of vehicle models in close following and passing situations were investigated expeimentally. Effect of the inter-vehicle spacing and lateral distance on drag coefficients of two close-following vehicles were observed. Two different types of vehicle models were used in order to investigate the shape effect on aerodynamic vehicle interactions. Drag froces and surface pressures of the models at each situation were measured. Two different blockage correction method...
Transient dynamic response of viscoelastic cylinders enclosed in filament wound cylindrical composites
Şen, Özge; Turhan, Doğan; Department of Engineering Sciences (2005)
In this study, transient dynamic response of viscoelastic cylinders enclosed in filament wound cylindrical composites is investigated. Thermal effects, in addition to mechanical effects, are taken into consideration. A generalized thermoelasticity theory which incorporates the temperature rate among the constitutive variables and is referred to as temperature-rate dependent thermoelasticity theory is employed. This theory predicts finite heat propagation speeds. The body considered in this thesis consists o...
