CO2 emissions of Turkish manufacturing industry: A decomposition analysis

2011-06-01
In this study. CO2 emissions of Turkish manufacturing industry are calculated by using the fuel consumption data at ISIC revision 2, four digit level. Study covers 57 industries, for the 1995-2001 period. Log Mean Divisia Index (LMDI) method is used to decompose the changes in the CO2 emissions of manufacturing industry into five components: changes in activity, activity structure, sectoral energy intensity, sectoral energy mix and emission factors. Mainly, it is found that changes in total industrial activity and energy intensity are the primary factors determining the changes in CO2 emissions during the study period. It is also indicated that among the fuels used, coal is the main determining factor and among the sectors, 3710 (iron and steel basic industries) is the dirtiest sector dominating the industrial CO2 emissions in the Turkish manufacturing industry.

In this study; reliability and performance of turbulence models used in CFD softwares to determine the aerodynamics of passenger cars, are tested and compared. In the analyses, drag forces acting on the car, pressure and velocity distributions and wake flow patterns are determined by using several turbulence models with a commercial software Fluent. Calculated results compared to the experimental results given in the literature. It is observed that, turbulence models give relatively reliable results for det...
Physical and optical properties of DCJTB dye for OLED display applications: Experimental and theoretical investigation
KURBAN, MUSTAFA; GÜNDÜZ, BAYRAM (2017-06-05)
In this study, 4-(dicyanomethylene)-2-tert-butyl-6-(1,1,7,7-tetramethyljulolidin-4-yl-vinyl)-4H-pyran (DCJTB) was achieved using the experimental and theoretical studies. The electronic, optical and spectroscopic properties of DCJTB molecule were first investigated by performing experimental both solution and thin film techniques and then theoretical calculations. Theoretical results showed that one intense.electronic transition is 505.26 nm a quite reasonable and agreement with the measured experimental da...

Thermoluminescent properties of Sr2P2O7 doped with copper and some rare earth elements
YAZICI, AHMET NECMEDDİN; Seyyidoglu, Semih; Toktamis, Hueseyin; Yılmaz, Ayşen (2010-10-01)
In this study. Sr2P2O7 was doped with some rare earth oxides (Pr6O11, Nd2O3, Dy2O3, Ho2O3, Er2O3, and Tm2O3) at 0.5%, 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, 5%, 10%, and 15% (by weight) and co-doped with CuO by heating at 900 C for 10 h. Structural analysis of the products was carried out by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). XRD patterns of the samples showed that doping did not alter the orthorhombic structure of the Sr2P2O7. Thermoluminescence (TL) glow curve measurements were obtained and these showed that Pr and Cu-doped Sr2P2O...
No muddy shoes, no dirty clothes! examining the views of teachers and parents regarding children's outdoor play and learning
Kandemir, Melike; Sevimli Çelik, Serap (2021-12-01)
The aim of this study was twofold: (a) to carry out an in-depth investigation of teachers and parental views regarding outdoor play and learning, and (b) to examine the extent to which the objectives and goals related to outdoor play and learning were documented within the school curriculum. The data were collected qualitatively from 12 teachers and 35 parents whose children were enrolled in one school. Data collection occurred through observations, semi-structured interviews, and document analysis. It was ...
