Gödel-type metrics in various dimensions

Godel-type metrics are introduced and used in producing charged dust solutions in various dimensions. The key ingredient is a (D-1)-dimensional Riemannian geometry which is then employed in constructing solutions to the Einstein-Maxwell field equations with a dust distribution in D dimensions. The only essential field equation in the procedure turns out to be the source-free Maxwell's equation in the relevant background. Similarly the geodesics of this type of metric are described by the Lorentz force equation for a charged particle in the lower dimensional geometry. It is explicitly shown with several examples that Godel-type metrics can be used in obtaining exact solutions to various supergravity theories and in constructing spacetimes that contain both closed timelike and closed null curves and that contain neither of these. Among the solutions that can be established using non-flat backgrounds, such as the Tangherlini metrics in (D-1)-dimensions, there exists a class which can be interpreted as describing black-hole-type objects in a Godel-like universe.

Monitoring durability of new concrete bridge decks
Aktan, Haluk M.; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Staton, John F. (2001-08-03)
The ND durability monitoring procedure, which measures the soundness of field concrete, is based on the fundamental relationship between ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) and permeability of an elastic medium. An experimental study documented adequate sensitivity between UPV and concrete permeability. The durability monitoring procedure is based on a parameter developed as part of this study and called paste quality loss (PQL) which is computed from the probability density function parameters of ultrasonic pu...
A micro-macro approach to rubber-like materials?Part I: the non-affine micro-sphere model of rubber elasticity
Miehe, C; Göktepe, Serdar; Lulei, F. (Elsevier BV, 2004-11)
The contribution presents a new micro-mechanically based network model for the description of the elastic response of rubbery polymers at large strains and considers details of its numerical implementation. The approach models a rubber-like material based on a micro-structure that can be symbolized by a micro-sphere where the surface represents a continuous distribution of chain orientations in space. Core of the model is a new two-dimensional constitutive setting of the micro-mechanical response of a singl...
Account of nonlocal ionization by fast electrons in the fluid models of a direct current glow discharge
Rafatov, İsmail; KUDRYAVTSEV, A. A. (AIP Publishing, 2012-09-01)
We developed and tested a simple hybrid model for a glow discharge, which incorporates nonlocal ionization by fast electrons into the "simple" and "extended" fluid frameworks. Calculations have been performed for an argon gas. Comparison with the experimental data as well as with the hybrid (particle) and fluid modelling results demonstated good applicability of the proposed model. (C) 2012 American Institute of Physics.

Beam switching reflectarray with rf mems technology
Bayraktar, Ömer; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis 10x10 reconfigurable reflectarray is designed at 26.5 GHz where the change in the progressive phase shift between elements is obtained with RF MEMS switches in the transmission lines of unit elements composed of aperture coupled microstrip patch antenna (ACMPA). The reflectarray is illuminated by a horn antenna, and the reflected beam is designed to switch between broadside and 40° by considering the position of the horn antenna with respect to the reflectarray. In the design, the transmissio...
Growth and morphological characterization of intrinsic hydrogenated amorphous silicon thin film for a-Si:H/c-Si heterojunction solar cells
Pehlivan, Özlem; Tomak, Mehmet; Kodolbaş, Alp Osman; Department of Physics (2013)
Passivation of the crystalline silicon (c-Si) wafer surface and decreasing the number of interface defects are basic requirements for development of high efficiency a-Si:H/c-Si heterojunction solar cells. Surface passivation is generally achieved by development of detailed silicon wafer cleaning processes and the optimization of PECVD parameters for the deposition of intrinsic hydrogenated amorphous silicon layer. a-Si:H layers are grown in UHV-PECVD system. Solar cells were deposited on the p type Cz-silic...
