Experimental analysis of curved laminated beam

Uzhan, Tevfik
In this thesis, experimental studies are carried out on curved laminated glass beams to form a database for the scientists who may like to test their mathematical models. Beams which are only free to rotate and constrained in radial direction at both ends are tested to make the data available for further calculations. Test setup is prepared to minimize error that could occur due to test setup and data readings. Material testing machine and 4 channel data collecting machine are used to measure the signals at the strain gauges located over the glass beam. Within the range of force applied to the specimens, laminated curved beam shows linear behavior without any fracture. Data collected from the specimens are in conformance with each other. Results obtained from experiments are compared with the results obtained from the mathematical model developed by AŞık and Dural (2006). As it is observed from the graphs presented, experimental results from the tests and numerical results from the mathematical model are in good agreement.


Computer simulation of grain boundary grooving by anisotropic surface drift diffusion due to capillary, electromigration and elastostatic forces
Akyıldız, Öncü; Oğurtanı, Tarık Ö.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
The aim of this study is to develop a theoretical basis and to perform computational experiments for understanding the grain boundary (GB) grooving in polycrystalline thin film metallic conductors (interconnects) by anisotropic surface diffusion due to capillary, electromigration and elastostatic forces. To this end, irreversible thermo–kinetics of surfaces and interfaces with triple junction singularities is elaborated, and the resulting well-posed moving boundary value problem is solved using the front–tr...
Mechatronic design of a scanner and interlacer for thermal imaging system
Düzgün, Mustafa Barış; Erkmen, İsmet; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2000)
In this thesis a scanner and interlacer subsystem for a thermal imaging system designed and developed as a prototype at the laboratories of Aselsan .The unit is given the game ASIR and it is the first thermal camera system designed and developed in Turkey.In the development of the ASIR , an available 60 Hz field rate scanner and interlacer system is used as a reference benchmark system. ASIR operates at a 50 Hz and have improved frame resolution and detector dwell time compared to the bench mark system. Sc...
Experimental investigation of a spherical solar collector
Bakır, Öztekin; Yamalı, Cemil; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the performance of a spherical solar collector by using numerical and experimental methods. For this analysis, equations were obtained by choosing appropriate control volumes in the system and applying The First Law of Thermodynamics. The experiments were realized at four different mass flow rates and non-flow situation. For the numerical simulation of the system, a computer program in Mathcad was written. Another computer program in Mathcad was written for the va...
Assessment of a frequency-domain linearised Euler solver for turbofan aft radiation predictions and comparison with measurements
Özyörük, Yusuf (2010-03-31)
This paper presents a frequency-domain computational aeroacoustics tool for predicting aft noise radiation through turbofan ducts and jets and its application to two realistic engine exhaust configurations which have been experimentally tested. The tool is based on the discretised axisymmetric form of the linearised Euler equations in conjunction with perfectly matched layer equations at the inlet and far-field boundaries using high-order finite differences. The resultant linear system of equations is inver...
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...
