Modeling and computational simulation of adsorption based chemical heat pumps
Yurtsever, Ahmet Onur; Karakaş, Gürkan; Uludağ, Yusuf (2013-01-10)
In this study a methodology is developed for the design of a packed bed reactor to be used in a Chemical Heat Pump (CHP). Adsorption and desorption of ethanol on active carbon packing in the reactor are investigated. Depending on the cycle, i.e. adsorption or desorption, cooling or heating of the reactor material is modeled through transient energy equation. The parameters associated with the vapor-carbon adsorption kinetics are experimentally determined. Then spatial distribution of temperature and adsorbe...
Modeling and motion simulation of an underwater simulation
Küçük, Koray; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
This thesis involves modeling, controller design, and test case simulations for an underwater vehicle. Firstly, a complete dynamic model of the vehicle is developed with six degrees of freedom. The model includes the nonlinearities associated with the hydrodynamic forces and moments. The thrusters of the vehicle are also modeled. Then, using appropriate linearizations of the model, position and rate controllers are designed for the forward, downward, and turning motions of the vehicle. Finally, the designed...
Modeling, simulation and experimental verification of a hydraulic fan drive system
Toraman, Ersen; Balkan, Raif Tuna; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013)
Environmental factors, global legislations and economic reasons force vehicle industry to produce more efficient systems. Displacement controlled hydraulic fan drive system is one of the energy efficient alternatives for stationary highway vehicles, construction machines and military vehicles that have moderate engine size and less benefit from ram air cooling. In this thesis study, hydraulic fan drive system of a military vehicle is investigated and a dynamic model of the system is developed. MATLAB/Simuli...
Modeling, transient simulations and parametric studies of parabolic trough collectors with thermal energy storage
Akba, Tufan; Baker, Derek Keıth; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla (Elsevier BV, 2020-3-15)
For investigating the system response of parabolic trough collector heat generating system, a plant with parabolic trough collector field and two-tank molten salt thermal energy storage model with component-level control algorithm is developed for managing various working conditions. The model is transient inside the components and responds with hourly weather and demand data. The main purpose of this work is providing an alternative design methodology that focuses on the collector field, and storage size b...
Modeling and simulation of viscous electro-active polymers
Vogel, Franziska; Göktepe, Serdar; Steinmann, Paul; Kuhl, Ellen (2014-11-01)
Electro-active materials are capable of undergoing large deformation when stimulated by an electric field. They can be divided into electronic and ionic electro-active polymers (EAPs) depending on their actuation mechanism based on their composition. We consider electronic EAPs, for which attractive Coulomb forces or local re-orientation of polar groups cause a bulk deformation. Many of these materials exhibit pronounced visco-elastic behavior. Here we show the development and implementation (o)f a constitu...
