A novel satellite attitude actuator based on vibrating masses was previously proposed. Its governing equations were obtained and simulated. In this study, the resulting mathematical model is validated via energy as well as the conservation of angular momentum methods. Additionally, the mathematical model for the complete system was too complicated for analysis. In this work, a representative simplified set of equations describing vibrating mass control moment gyroscope (vCMG) dynamics in high fidelity are a...

Considering the history of the interactions between Turkey and the western countries, it might be stated that a substantial intellectual accumulation had been formed from the last two centuries of the Ottoman Empire until the foundation of the Republic of Turkey. In parallel with the modernization steps undertaken, a remarkable anti-western discourse has been formed among the Turkish intelligentsia. The emergent reaction to the West, which has lasted for at least two and a half centuries under several forms...
Doing justice to history in the face of gross human rights violations: epistemic justice of truth commissions and human rights reports in Guatemala, Serbia and Sierra Leone
Ratip, Mehmet; Deveci, Cem; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2014)
This thesis examines the question of how societies deal with the legacy of gross human rights violations. More specifically, it examines the work of official human rights investigations called truth commissions which have been established in increasing numbers since the 1980s in post-conflict countries across the world as institutional responses to gross human rights violations. It involves a close study of reports written by three most prominent international human rights organizations (Amnesty Internation...
