Design and performance evaluation of a fuel filter

Ayrancı, Hakan
This thesis analyzes design criteria’s, performance evaluation of fuel filter. Fundamental concepts, definition and systems has been discussed at literature survey parts. Fundamentals of filter design tests and calculations are discussed. In Addition Frequency and amplitude effect on fuel filter efficiency investigated with different particle sizes by preparing special test set up. Test results has been analyzed by using Regression, Anova and Analyze of Variance methods with Minitab software.


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...
Shape optimization of an excavator boom by using genetic algorithm
Uzer, Cevdet Can; Söylemez, Eres; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
This study concerns with the automated structural optimization of an excavator boom. The need for this work arises due to the fact that the preparation of the CAD model, performing finite element analysis and model data evaluation are time consuming processes and require experienced man power. The previously developed software OptiBOOM, which generates a CAD model using a finite set of parameters and then performs a finite element analysis by using a commercial program has been modified. The model parameter...
Development of test structures and methods for characterization of MEMS materials
Yıldırım, Ender; Arıkan, Mehmet Ali Sahir; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
This study concerns with the testing methods for mechanical characterization at micron scale. The need for the study arises from the fact that the mechanical properties of materials at micron scale differ compared to their bulk counterparts, depending on the microfabrication method involved. Various test structures are designed according to the criteria specified in this thesis, and tested for this purpose in micron scale. Static and fatigue properties of the materials are aimed to be extracted through the ...
Computer aided engineering of an unmanned underwater vehicle
Cevheri, Necmettin; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
Hydrodynamic and thermal analyses performed during the conceptual design of an unmanned underwater vehicle are presented in this study. The hull shape is determined by considering alternative shapes and the dimensions are determined from the internal arrangement of components. Preliminary thermal analyses of the watertight section are performed with a commercial software called FLUENT to check the risk of over-heating due to the heat dissipation of devices. Performance of the proposed hull design is analyze...
Uncertainty Analysis of Heat Transfer Predictions Using Statistically Modeled Data From a Cooled 1-1/2 Stage High-Pressure Transonic Turbine
Kahveci, Harika Senem (ASME International, 2014-06-01)
This paper compares predictions from a 3D Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes code and a statistical representation of measurements from a cooled 1-1/2 stage high-pressure transonic turbine to quantify predictive process sensitivity. A multivariable regression technique was applied to both the inlet temperature measurements obtained at the inlet rake, the wall temperature, and heat transfer measurements obtained via heat-flux gauges on the blade airfoil surfaces. By using the statistically modeled temperature p...
