Conceptual design, testing and manufacturing of an industrial type electro-hydraulic vacuum sweeper

Şahin, Emre
In this thesis, conceptual design, testing, development and manufacturing processes of the cleaning (elevator and fan system) and electro-hydraulic systems of an industrial type vacuum sweeper are presented. Thesis is financially supported by Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology (Turkey) and Müsan A.Ş. (Makina Üretim Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş.) under the SAN-TEZ projects with numbers 00028.STZ.2007-1 and 00623.STZ.2010-1. The main purpose is to make critical design changes on existing fan system, designing a new elevator system and eventually obtaining efficient and powerful cleaning system. For design, Catia and SolidWorks softwares are used. Within the SAN-TEZ project, all CFD solutions were provided by Punto Engineering. Unlike many industrial type vacuum sweepers, new design will be electrically and electro-hydraulic controlled. All cleaning system of new ‘MÜSAN Vacuum Sweeper’ will be activated by using hydraulic motors (traction system including hydraulic system is driven by the brushless DC electric motor as well) and the power of all these systems is supplied by batteries which are placed in the middle of the vehicle. Elevator and fan system can be considered as a group for a street sweeper for cleaning operations. Fan and elevator systems both gain an important place especially in cleaning operations due to lifting heavy and small particles from the ground. Fan system is used for sucking the small materials and dust by vacuum and elevator system is used to elevate heavier materials such stones, bottles, cans. Therefore, it is essential to design an efficient and powerful fan and elevator system for a street sweeper. The thesis work includes the design, development, supervision of manufacturing, simulation and testing of the cleaning (elevator and fan systems) and electro-hydraulic system of the street cleaners.

A New production methodology for vacuum infusion process of advanced composite structures
Poorzeinolabedin, Mohsen; Parnas, Kemal Levend; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP) is one of the Liquid Composite Molding (LCM) methods which are widely used in out-of-autoclave processes especially for the manufacturing of large scale composite parts in aerospace, automotive, wind energy and marine industries. In order to simulate the infusion process, the permeability of preforms is an essential parameter. Absence of any standard is a challenge for the determination of in-plane permeabilities of a preform. The first objective of this study is to develop an ...
Moving Object Detction in 2D and 3D Scenes
Sırtkaya, Salim; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
This thesis describes the theoretical bases, development and testing of an integrated moving object detection framework in 2D and 3D scenes. The detection problem is analyzed in stationary and non-stationary camera sequences and different algorithms are developed for each case. Two methods are proposed in stationary camera sequences: background extraction followed by differencing and thresholding, and motion detection using optical flow field calculated by أKanade-Lucas Feature Trackerؤ. For non-stationary ...
Design optimization of rocket nozzles in chemically reacting flows
Yumusak, M.; Eyi, Sinan (2012-07-30)
The objective of this study is to develop a reliable and efficient design tool that can be used in chemically reacting flows. The flow analysis is based on the axisymmetric Euler and the finite rate chemical reaction equations. The finite rate chemistry model includes eight species and eleven reaction equations. These coupled equations are solved by using Newton's method. Both the numerical and the analytical methods are used to calculate the Jacobian matrices. Sensitivities are evaluated by using the adjoi...
Implementation and evaluation of the dynamic distributed real time industrial protocol (D²RIP)
Kaya, Adem; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
The contemporary large-scale and complex industrial control systems such as manufacturing systems, power plants or chemical processes are realized as distributed systems. Since different controller nodes are usually physically distributed, their coordination and information exchange is commonly realized via industrial communication networks (ICNs). In the last decade, there is an ongoing research effort in both academic and industrial fields to employ Ethernet for industrial communications due to its wide a...
