Analysis of thermomechanical cyclic behavior of unidirectional metal matrix composites
Çöker, Demirkan; Nicholas, Theodore (1993-01-01)
An analytical tool is developed to determine the three-dimensional stress state in a unidirectional composite subjected to axial loading and changes in temperature. A finite difference method is used to analyze a representative volume element of the composite which consists of concentric cylinders. The constituents are assumed to be elastic-plastic materials having temperature dependent properties. An iterative technique using the Prandtl-Reuss flow rule to determine incremental plastic strains is implement...
Comparison between performances of Monte Carlo method and method of lines solution of.discrete ordinates method
Demirkaya, G; Arinc, F; Selçuk, Nevin; Ayranci, I (2005-06-01)
Monte Carlo method was used to predict the incident radiative heat fluxes on the freeboard walls of the METU 0.3 MWt atmospheric bubbling fluidized bed combustor based on the data reported previously. The freeboard was treated as a rectangular enclosure with gray interior walls and gray, absorbing, emitting and isotropically scattering medium. A Monte Carlo solver was developed and the performance of the solver was assessed by comparing its predictions with those of method of lines solution of discrete ordi...
Comparison of machine learning algorithms on consumer credit classification
Koç, Oğuz; Kestel, A. Sevtap.; Department of Financial Mathematics (2019)
Like other prediction models, credit scoring is a tool used to evaluate the amount of risk associated with applicants or customers. Scoring models identify clients individually as good or bad applicants. They offer statistical odds or probabilities for prediction either the applicant will be default or not in the future. It is beneficial for banks and credit analysts to measure customers' non-payment risk by statistically tested algorithms in many aspects such as reduction in workload and evaluation time. A...
Analysis Methods for the Investigation of the Seismic Response of Concrete Dams
Aldemir, Alper; Yilmazturk, Sema Melek; Yucel, Ali Riza; Binici, Barış; Arıcı, Yalın; Akman, Altug (2015-01-01)
The consideratiOn of the dam-foundation-reservoir interaction is extremely important for estimating the seismic response of concrete gravity dams. Moreover, nonlinear analysis may be required for determining the possible risk associated with dams. In order to address these issues, DSI recently published the "Guidelines for Seismic Design of Concrete Dams". Authors who have contributed to the preparation of this document provide a perspective on the seismic safety/design of concrete dams and structural analy...
Simulation of flow transients in liquid pipeline systems
Koç, Gencer; Eralp, O. Cahit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
Transient flow is a situation where the pressure and flow rate in the pipeline rapidly changes with time. Flow transients are also known as surge and Waterhammer which originates from the hammering sound of the water in the taps or valves. In liquid pipelines, preliminary design parameters are chosen for steady state operations, but a transient check is always necessary. There are various types of transient flow situations such as valve closures, pump trips and flow oscillations. During a transient flow, pr...
