Magnetic activity and evolution of Algol-type stars - II

Yerli, Sinan Kaan
Muslimov, A G
We examine the possibility of probing dynamo action in mass-losing stars, components of Algol-type binaries, Our analysis is based on the calculation of nonconservative evolution of these systems, We model the systems U Sge and beta Per where the more massive companion fills its Roche lobe at the main sequence (case AB) and where it has a small helium core (early case B) respectively, We show that to maintain evolution of these systems at the late stages which are presumably driven by stellar 'magnetic braking', an efficient mechanism for producing large-scale surface magnetic fields in the donor star is needed. We discuss the relevance of dynamo operation in the donor star to the accelerated mass transfer during the late stages of evolution of Algol-type binaries. We suggest that the observed X-ray activity in Algol-type systems may be a good indicator of their evolutionary status and internal structure of the mass-losing stellar components.


Pulse phase resolved x-ray spectroscopy of four accretion powered millisecond pulsars
Çolak, Sıdıka Merve; Baykal, Altan; Department of Physics (2014)
In this thesis, pulse phase resolved X-ray spectroscopy of four accretion powered millisecond pulsars which are IGR J00291+5934 , IGR J17498-2921 , XTE J0929-314 and XTE J1807-294 will be presented. Phase dependent changes during their outbursts will be checked for possible correlations of spectral parameters such as photon index and blackbody temperature with rotation phase using archive of Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) observations. In the analysis of IGR J17498-2921 in 2011 outburst , positive corre...
Nonlinear fiber modeling of steel-concrete partially composite beams with channel shear connectors
Öztürk, Alper; Baran, Eray; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
The purpose of this study is to develop a nonlinear fiber-based finite element model of steel-concrete composite beams. The model was developed in OpenSees utilizing the available finite element formulations and the readily available uniaxial material constitutive relations. The model employed beam elements for the steel beam and the concrete slab, while zero-length connector elements were used for the steel-concrete interface. The channel shear connector response used in numerical models was based on the p...
Numerical simulation of thermal convection under the influence of a magnetic field by using solenoidal bases
Yarımpabuç, Durmuş; Tarman, Işık Hakan; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
The effect of an imposed magnetic field on the thermal convection between rigid plates heated from below under the influence of gravity is numerically simulated in a computational domain with periodic horizontal extent. The numerical technique is based on solenoidal basis functions satisfying the boundary conditions for both velocity and induced magnetic field. The expansion bases for the thermal field are also constructed to satisfy the boundary conditions. The governing partial differential equations are ...
Magnetic moment of the X-Q state with J(PC)=1(++/-) in light cone QCD sumrules
Agamaliev, A. K.; Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Savcı, Mustafa (2017-02-21)
The magnetic moments of the recently observed resonance X-b(5568) by D0 Collaboration and its partner with charm quark are calculated in the framework of the light cone QCD sum rules, by assuming that these resonances are represented as tetraquark states with quantum numbers J(PC) = 1(vertical bar +/-). The magnetic moment can play a critical role in the determination of the quantum numbers, as well as give useful information about the inner structure of these mesons.
Phonon dispersions and elastic constants of disordered Pd-Ni alloys
Kart, SO; Tomak, Mehmet; Cagin, T (Elsevier BV, 2005-01-31)
Phonon frequencies of Pd-Ni alloys are calculated by molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. Lattice dynamical properties computed from Sutton-Chen (SC) and quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) potentials as a function of temperature are compared with each other. We present all interatomic force constants up to the 8th nearest-neighbor shell obtained by using the calculated potential. Elastic constants evaluated by two methods are consistent with each other. The transferability of the potential is also tested. The result...
