Comparison of international federation of consulting engineers and general specification for public works contracts from risk management perspective
Usta, Ergun; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
Contractors have to construct the projects efficiently in accordance with the contract provisions when they accept a contract. All construction projects involve risk and there is no possibility to eliminate all the risks associated with a specific project. Management of risk requires identification and analysis of risk factors. After this risk assessment step, proper response strategies have to be developed so that an optimum risk-reward structure is ensured. Contracts are the grounds where risk allocation ...
An experimental study of residual fiber strains in Ti-15-3 continuous fiber composites
Pickard, S.M.; Miracle, D.B.; Majumdar, B.S.; Kendig, K.L.; Rothenflue, L.; Çöker, Demirkan (Elsevier BV, 1995-01-01)
A simplified experimental technique to determine the axial fiber residual strain in continuously-reinforced metal matrix composites is described. The residual fiber strains in two Ti-15V-3Cr-3Al-3Sn/SiC metal matrix composites have been measured with this technique. Residual fiber strains on the order of 0.2% are measured in the as-processed condition, and the residual stresses approach zero after testing the composite in tension to failure at room temperature. A conceptual description of the effect of tens...
An analytical model for source code distributability verification
Isazadeh, Ayaz; Karimpour, Jaber; Elgedawy, Islam; Izadkhah, Habib (Zhejiang University Press, 2014-02-01)
One way to speed up the execution of sequential programs is to divide them into concurrent segments and execute such segments in a parallel manner over a distributed computing environment. We argue that the execution speedup primarily depends on the concurrency degree between the identified segments as well as communication overhead between the segments. To guarantee the best speedup, we have to obtain the maximum possible concurrency degree between the identified segments, taking communication overhead int...
A computational procedure for estimating residual stresses and secondary plastic flow limits in nonlinearly strain hardening rotating shafts
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-03-01)
A computational procedure to estimate the residual stress distributions and the limit angular speeds for avoiding secondary plastic deformation in nonlinearly strain hardening rotating elastic-plastic shafts is given. The model is based on von Mises yield condition, J(2) deformation theory and a Swift-type hardening law. The boundary value problem for the governing nonlinear differential equation is solved by a shooting method using Newton iterations with numerically approximated tangent. Solid as well as h...
Comparison of Structural Properties of Copper Deposits from Sulfate and Pyrophosphate Electrolytes
Arslan, Berna; ERDOĞAN, MUSTAFA; İmamoğlu, İpek; Karakaya, İshak (2013-11-01)
Aluminum is quite often plated to combine the advantages of the light metal with modified surface properties. In this study, copper strike electrodeposits obtained from cyanide and pyrophosphate strike baths were compared in terms of microstructure, and copper pyrophosphate strike was found to yield smoother deposits. Furthermore, about 50 µm thick copper depositions on the strike plated aluminum surface, were prepared from acid copper sulfate and copper pyrophosphate electrolytes to compare structural prop...
