Mechanical properties of synthesized sodium silicate mineral, Na-kanemite, was investigated by synchrotron-based high-pressure x-ray diffraction experiment and first-principles calculations. Under hydrostatic pressure, the 020 interlayer peak was substantially diffused while a new 011 peak formed at 0.4 GPa due to the reduction of Pbcn symmetry. Upon unloading, the diffused interlayer peak reappeared to its original position with a less peak intensity and the newly formed peak disappeared. This temporal but reversible phase instability related to the symmetry reduction, can be induced from the vibration effect of water molecules contained in interlayer region that can more significantly affect the structural response of crystals with poor crystallinity and stacking disorder. There is a good agreement of pressure response between experimental data and calculations using GGA functional. In addition, conducted analysis on bond variation revealed that contraction of thickness and distortion of Na layer under pressure which caused partial charge redistribution. Suggested elastic properties and charge data will be used to develop reliable force-field database for further molecular dynamics simulation and diagnose macroscopic impact from alkali-silicate reaction damaged structure.

Tekin, Emine Deniz (Calisir); ERKOÇ, Figen; YILDIZ, İLKAY; Erkoç, Şakir (2008-07-01)
The structural, vibrational and electronic properties of warfarin sodium, warfarin and its metabolites have been investigated theoretically by performing the molecular mechanics (MM+ force field), the semi-empirical self-consistent-field molecular-orbital (AM1), and density functional theory calculations. The geometry of the molecules have been optimized, the vibrational dynamics and the electronic properties of the molecules have been calculated in their ground state in gas phase.

Sürücü, Gökhan; Işık, Mehmet; Gencer, Ayşenur; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2021-11-01)
The present study reports the mechanical and elastic characteristics of Bi12GeO20 (BGO) compound by experimental nanoindentation measurements and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. X-ray diffraction pattern of BGO was plotted and revealed diffraction peaks were associated with Miller indices of cubic crystalline structure with lattice constant of a = 10.304 Å. Two- and three-dimensional representations of Young’s modulus, linear compressibility, shear modulus and Poisson’s ratio were presented ac...
Evaluation of mechanical properties of Bi12SiO20 sillenite using first principles and nanoindentation
Isik, M.; Sürücü, Gökhan; Gencer, A.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2021-08-01)
The mechanical and anisotropic elastic properties of Bi12SiO20 (BSO) were investigated using density functional theory (DFT) calculations and nanoindentation. The calculated and experimentally observed XRD patterns of the compound were reported and the crystal structure of the BSO was determined to be cubic with the lattice constant of a = 1.025 nm. The second-order elastic constants and related polycrystalline elastic moduli (e.g. shear modulus, Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, linear compressibility and ...
Experimental investigation and modeling of dropwise condensation on a horizontal gold coated tube /
Serdar, Orhan; Yamalı, Cemil; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2004)
The phenomenon dropwise condensation on a horizontal gold coated tube is investigated by both analytical and experimental methods in this study. A computer program is prepared to calculate the dropwise condensation heat transfer rate on the horizontal gold coated tube. An experimental setup was also manufactured to measure the dropwise condensation heat transfer rate. The effects of flow rate, temperature of cooling water and also steam to wall temperature difference have been analytically investigated by u...
