Algal alginate: A potential coagulant for drinking water treatment
Devrimci, H. Aylin; Yuksel, A. Mete; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2012-08-01)
Due to its gelling abilities, calcium alginate has been investigated in this work as a possible coagulant to be used in turbid water treatment. Sodium salts of commercially available alginic acid with low and high viscosities were used in the study. A standard jar test was conducted in 500 mL of synthetic turbid water samples with different initial turbidities of 150, 80 and 10 NTU. These samples were treated using different doses of calcium (varying between 30 and 200 mg/L) and alginate (varying between 0....
Waterborne parasitic protozoa removal capacities of wastewater treatment plants with varying processes
Onursal, Aslı; İçgen, Bülent; Department of Environmental Engineering (2022-8-26)
The parasitic protozoa Giardia intestinalis, Entamoeba histolytica, Blastocystis hominis, and Cryptosporidium parvum are causative agents for human giardiasis, amebiasis, blastocytosis (formerly known as hominis infection) and cryptosporidiosis, respectively. These infections are mostly associated with waterborne diseases. Due to the lack of regulations for monitoring these protozoa in the discharge point of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), the discharges that reach to surface waters lead to waterborne ...
Use of equivalent single porosity medium and automated lumped fluid composition simulation in naturally fractured gas condensate reservoirs
Ertürk, Mehmet Cihan; Sınayuç, Çağlar; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2018)
Each naturally fractured gas condensate reservoir is unique and needs special interests for an accurate modelling study. Ordinarily, it is a very difficult task to conduct a fast and well-characterized simulation study and predict the performance of such reservoirs in view of the complicated thermodynamic behavior, the complex fluid composition, dual porosity behavior and significant computational time requirement. The numerical simulation of fractured gas condensate reservoirs offer remarkable potential fo...
Meaning of life as a mental concept
Aydoğan, Cevriye Arzu; Sayan, Erdinç; Department of Philosophy (2010)
What is the meaning of life? This has been one of the major questions of philosophy for centuries; from Socrates to Nietzsche and from Tolstoy to the famous comedy writers’ group Monty Python. People from diverse intellectual backgrounds asked what the meaning of life is. Although there are doubts that this question is now outdated, meaning of life seems to me still an intriguing subject. In this thesis I argue that life’s meaning must be discussed according to two different notions. One of these notions is...
Transformation of the caste system and the dalit movement
Çalıkoğlu, Melih Rüştü; Soykut, Mustafa; Department of History (2005)
This thesis analyzes the history of caste system and explains the theories of the birth of caste in Indian civilization. After defining the caste system in historical and cultural manner. examines the birth of and spreading of Dalit movement or low caste mass movement during the 19th and 20th century with the influence of British rule.
