Melting, recrystallisation and remelting of undrawn and drawn linear polyethylene with different molecular weight were studied by differential scanning calorimetry before and after oxidation with nitric acid.
Lattice boltzmann automaton model to simulate fluid flow in synthetic fractures
Eker, Erdinç; Akın, Serhat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2005)
Modeling of flow in porous and fractured media is a very important problem in reservoir engineering. As for numerical simulations conventional Navier-Stokes codes are applied to flow in both porous and fractured media. But they have long computation times, poor convergence and problems of numerical instabilities. Therefore, it is desired to develop another computational method that is more efficient and use simple rules to represent the flow in fractured media rather than partial differential equations. In ...
Assessment of Point-Source Stochastic Simulations Using Recently Derived Ground-Motion Prediction Equations
Akkar, Dede Sinan; Yenier, Emrah (Seismological Society of America (SSA), 2009-12-01)
The simplicity of the point-source stochastic simulation method makes it one of the most appealing tools for the quantification of ground motions for seismic hazard related studies. In this article, we scrutinize the limitations of this technique in terms of fundamental geophysical model parameters. To achieve this objective, we use the estimations of recent Next Generation Attenuation (NGA) and European empirical ground-motion models that are based on global strong-motion databases. The generated synthetic...
The Effects of Clinical and Home‐based Physiotherapy Programs in Secondary Head and Neck Lymphedema
Ozdemir, Kadirhan; Keser, Ilke; Duzlu, Mehmet; Erpolat, Ozge P.; Saranlı, Uluç; Tutar, Hakan (Wiley, 2020-10-28)
Objectives/Hypothesis: To determine the effects of complex decongestive physiotherapy (CDP) and home programs on external lymphedema, staging of lymphedema, fibrosis, and three-dimensional (3D) surface scanning and volume evaluation in head and neck lymphedema. Study Design: A prospective randomized controlled study. Methods: Twenty-one patients were randomly divided into three groups: CDP (n:7), home program (n:7), and control (n:7). Assessment methods were applied at baseline and 4 weeks later for all gro...
