Inconsistencies (problems of) between two dimensional graphics of (urban) design and its three dimensional (urban) forms

Eren, Ebru
This study concentrates in particular on (good) visuality and visual perception of any design with consequences on urban environments and human lives. The purpose is that ‘any design requires not only holism (wholeness) within itself, which is generated by its design parameters, but also co-relation (consistency) between its mental imageries (visualizations or conceptual-mental fictions) and all their representational products in each and every dimensional realms. The design process is conducted respectfully to cognitive process (seeing, visualizing, perceiving) so that it could finalize within a good (perception) design’. Therefore, it is questionable whether design parameters enable (holistic and consistent) good designs with all representations, and then good urban environments, and sequentially good experiential-daily lives. Definition of related subjects, explanation of processes referring each other, and examination of some design cases regarding whose visuality is constructed and communicated by design parameters contribute to this scope of the study. Containing far more details, the study discusses (the analysis of) the survey touching upon (environment) lives and implements conclusions with future recommendations in this field (keywords).


Gas production from hydrate resevoirs
Alp, Doruk; Parlaktuma, Mahmut; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2005)
In this study; gas production by depressurization method from a hydrate reservoir containing free gas zone below the hydrate zone is numerically modeled through 3 dimensional, 3 phase, non-isothermal reservoir simulation. The endothermic nature of hydrate decomposition requires modeling to be non-isothermal; hence energy balance equations must be employed in the simulation process. TOUGH-Fx, the successor of the well known multipurpose reservoir simulator TOUGH2 (Pruess [24]) and its very first module TOUGH...
Impact of shopping centers on the fragmentation of the city center
Aksel Gürün, Banu; Keskinok, Hüseyin Çağatay; Department of City and Regional Planning (2009)
This study concentrates on the fragmentation process of the city centers. The study suggests that it is not necessarily the planning decisions or the lack of a rigorous planning framework that brings about the fragmentation process. Local and global economic and social circumstances may also give way to fragmentation of the city center. These processes take place through the countenance of developers, city authorities and central government. In this context, the study focuses on the fragmentation process of...
Investigation of turbulence models used in automotive industry
Taştan, Umur; Çetinkaya, Tahsin Ali; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2011)
In this study; reliability and performance of turbulence models used in CFD softwares to determine the aerodynamics of passenger cars, are tested and compared. In the analyses, drag forces acting on the car, pressure and velocity distributions and wake flow patterns are determined by using several turbulence models with a commercial software Fluent. Calculated results compared to the experimental results given in the literature. It is observed that, turbulence models give relatively reliable results for det...
The Coastal circulation model of Büyük Menderes river mouth and adjacent coastal areas
Gözlet, Mehmet Sedat; Özyurt Tarakcıoğlu, Gülizar; Baykal, Cüneyt; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
In this study; coastal circulation of Buyuk Menders river mouth and the adjacent coastal areas is modeled to determine the current characteristics of the region under river-sea interaction. For this purpose, Finite Volume Coastal Ocean Model (FVCOM) numerical model is setup and run under wind, tide, and river forcing conditions. Current, salinity, temperature data from field measurements are used to validate the performance of the model setup with default parametrization. Significance of each forcing on the...
Substituted quinoxaline and benzimidazole containing monomers as long wavelength photosensitizers for diaryliodonium salt initiators in photopolymerization
Çorakçı, Bengisu; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Çırpan, Ali; Department of Chemistry (2013)
In this study; ferrocenyl and naphthalenyl substituted quinoxaline derivatives; 5,8- bis (2,3- dihydrothieno [3,4-b] [1,4] dioxin-5-yl)-2- (naphthalen-2-yl)- 3- ferrocenyl- 4a,8a-dihydroquinoxaline; 5,8- bis (2,3-dihydrothieno [3,4-b] [1,4]dioxin-5-yl) -2- (phenyl) -3-ferrocenylquinoxaline; 5,8-bis (2,3-dihydrothieno [3,4-b] [1,4]dioxin-5-yl) -2,3- di(naphthalen-2-yl)quinoxaline and trihexylthiophene and thiophene coupled benzimidazole derivatives; 4-(tert-butyl)-4,7-bis(4-hexylthiophen-2-yl)spiro[benzo[d]i...
