Advanced Elasticity

At the end of the course, the student should be able to design and analyze aerospace engineering components subject to different types of loading. In particular, the objective is to introduce the student to i) the methods of stress, deformation and stability analysis in the design of aerospace engineering components, ii) failure theories, fatigue analysis and thermal stress analysis in the design process, iii) the use of computer tools to solve problems in mechanics. Independent learning, professionalism and applications to real engineering applications and problems will be stressed throughout.


Senior year thermal design course elective or mandatory restricted elective
Tarı, İlker; Tarı, Zehra Sibel (2006-11-10)
According to the educational objectives of METU Mechanical Engineering Department, there should be two senior year design courses: a mechanical design course and a thermal or fluids design course. The department had a successful long running mandatory mechanical design course. Instead of preparing and offering a mandatory thermal or fluid design course, it is decided to change the status of three senior year elective courses in thermal or fluids field that were involving design elements. Among these, ME421 ...
Computational networks and systems - homogenization of variational problems on micro-architectured networks and devices
Kropat, Erik; Meyer-Nieberg, Silja; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2019-05-04)
Networked materials and micro-architectured systems gain increasingly importance in multi-scale physics and engineering sciences. Typically, computational intractable microscopic models have to be applied to capture the physical processes and numerous transmission conditions at singularities, interfaces and borders. The topology of the periodic microstructure governs the effective behaviour of such networked systems. A mathematical concept for the analysis of microscopic models on extremely large periodic n...
A Software Package to Facilitate Teaching Introductory Level Mechatronics
Bayar, Gökhan; Ölçücüoğlu, Orhan; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Sekmen, Ali (null; 2005-06-15)
This paper describes a software package that is designed to facilitate teaching an introductory course on Mechatronics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Middle East Technical University. This course attracts students from multiple disciplines. Being offered at the third semester, rather than focusing on theoretical aspects of different disciplines, this course focuses on the system integration aspect of Mechatronics systems and emphasizes this with hands-on laboratory exercises and a semester p...
Development of a mobile robot platform to be used in mobile robot research
Gönüllü, Muhammet Kasım; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013)
Robotics is an interdisciplinary subject and combines mechanical, computer and electrical engineering components together to solve different kinds of problems. In order to build robotic systems, these disciplines should be integrated. Therefore, mobile robots can be used as a tool in education for teaching engineering concepts. They can be employed to be used in undergraduate, graduate and doctorate research. Hands on experience on a mobile robot increase motivation of the students on the topic and give the...
Development of an educational CFD software for two dimensional incompressible flows
Nakiboğlu, Güneş; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
The main purpose of this research is to develop a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software to be used as an educational tool in teaching introductory level fluid mechanics and CFD courses. The software developed for this purpose is called Virtual Flow Lab. It has a graphical user interface (GUI) that enables basic pre-processing, solver parameter and boundary condition setting and post-processing steps of a typical CFD simulation. The pressure-based solver is capable of solving incompressible, laminar, s...
