Assessing thermal performance of office building envelopes : a case study on energy efficiency
Sürmeli, Ayşe Neşen; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2004)
In this study, the energy conservation potential of selected retrofitting interventions on an office building were investigated, on the basis of which some rational strategies for the improvement of building envelopes in terms of energy, environment and comfort design were proposed. Examined were various measures on envelope constructions that can be retrofitted to existing buildings. By using simulation techniques, the effectiveness of such measures in reducing energy consumption and environmental threat w...
Analyzing the impacts of building form on the environment: a case study in Ankara witha focus on solar reflection
Tümbaş, Havva Nur; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2019)
In recent years, highly reflective materials have been widely used in building skins, not only for aesthetic reasons but also to reduce energy consumption and improve occupant satisfaction. Usage of highly reflective materials, combined with curvilinear building forms may cause undesired environmental impacts by creating uncontrolled solar reflections. This problem may lead to property and vegetation damage but more importantly, thermal and visual discomfort towards pedestrians, drivers and the occupants of...
Assessing effects of (3-aminopropyl) trimethoxysilane self-assembled layers on surface characteristics of organosilane-grafted moisture-crosslinked polyethylene substrate: A comparative study between chemical vapor deposition and plasma-facilitated in situ grafting methods
Sarkari, Navid Mostofi; Doğan, Öznur; Bat, Erhan; Mohseni, Mohsen; Ebrahimi, Morteza (Elsevier BV, 2019-12-15)
Silane coupling agents can act as bonding intermediates at the interface of two dissimilar materials by altering surface properties. In this study, (3-aminopropyl) trimethoxysilane (APTMS) was used as a silane precursor for vapor-phase deposition on organosilane-grafted moisture-crosslinked polyethylene (Si-XLPE) substrate. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and plasma-facilitated in situ grafting methods (grafting-from and grafting-onto) were employed to graft APTMS, and the consequent effects on surface of S...
Assessing the airtightness performance of container-like buildings in relation to its effect on energy efficiency
Bekboliev, Mirbek; Tanyer, Ali Murat; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2015)
This study analyzes the effect of airtightness on the energy efficiency of single and adjacent containerized buildings, before and after refurbishment. It further gives an overview of air leakage problems found in the sample of prefabricated buildings manufactured and located in Turkey. The air leakage of standard container-like building depends on a number of factors like the age of the building, manufacturing quality and quality of assembly implementation. The airtightness of four typical containerized bu...
Assessing the Effect of E-Commerce Intelligent Bots on Online Consumers' Post-adoption Behavior for Future Use
Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2014-06-01)
Having conducted many investigations on initial acceptance of information systems using intelligent bots by researchers recently, this study would rather research the post-adoption behavior of online consumers in the online service field. Researchers understand that acquiring a new consumer for a specific service costs five times more than retaining existing consumer. Intelligent bots are intelligent and automated software which assist customers to make the best decision by providing high quality suggestion...
