In this study, rice straw (RS) which was one of the major agricultural residues was used as filler in bio-based thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). Several treatments including hot water, alkali, permanganate, peroxide and silane were applied for modifying the surface of RS. The effects of surface modifications on mechanical, flow, morphological, and water absorption properties of green composites were investigated at a constant 30 wt% RS loading. Silane treatment performed after alkaline treatment gave the highest tensile strength, elastic and storage modulus in mechanical tests and gave the lowest water uptake properties. POLYM.

Effect of Polymers on the Rheological Properties of KCl Polymer Type Drilling Fluid
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2005-05-01)
In the course of this research, the effect of two polymers (xanthan gum and polyanionic cellulose) on the rheological properties of KCl/polymer type drilling fluids was investigated. Non-Newtonian drilling fluids are conventionally characterized by rheological models (Bingham Plastic, Power Law, Casson, Herchel-Bulkley and Robertson-Stiff). In this research, forty-five KCl/polymer data sets of varying compositions are prepared. Polymer addition to the system has affected the model and caused a variation of ...
Effect of limestone addition on radiative heat transfer during co-firing of high-sulfur content lignite with biomass in fluidized bed combustors
Ates, CİHAN; Selçuk, Nevin; Külah, Görkem (2018-01-01)
In this study, influence of limestone addition on radiative heat transfer during co-firing of high-sulfur content lignite with olive residue in the freeboard of 300 kW(t) Atmospheric Bubbling Fluidized Bed Combustor (ABFBC) is investigated by using an in-house developed radiation code based on Method of Lines (MOL) solution of Discrete Ordinates Method (DOM). The freeboard is treated as a 3D rectangular enclosure containing gray, absorbing, emitting gas with absorbing, emitting, anisotropically scattering p...
Effects of nanoparticles on thermal degradation of polylactide/aluminium diethylphosphinate composites
Kaya, Hatice; Özdemir, Esra; Kaynak, Cevdet; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2016-03-01)
We investigated the thermal degradation characteristics of polylactide (PLA) aluminium diethylphosphinate (AlPi) composites involving SiO2, halloysite (HNT) and organically modified montmorillonite (OMMT) via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Presence of nanoparticles, SiO2, HNT and OMMT affected both thermal stability and relative yields of thermal degradation products of PLA/AlPi. The transesterification reactions and interactions between PLA and AlPi were depressed in the presence of SiO2 and HNT. The ...
Effects of walnut shells on the rheological properties of water-based drilling fluids
Iscan, A.G.; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2007-08-01)
In this research, three different water-based drilling fluids were prepared according to American Petroleum Institute (API) standards, and effects of walnut shells on the rheological properties of the samples were studied. The walnut shells of 2-, 4-, and 6-mm samples and their equal weight mixtures of 2-4 mm and 4 6 mm were added to the drilling fluid samples in different concentrations. The aim of this study is to determine the optimum walnut shell size, concentration and polymer concentration to minimize...
Effects of spray drying temperature and additives on the stability of serine alkaline protease powders
Namaldi, Aysegul; Çalık, Pınar; Uludağ, Yusuf (2006-01-01)
In this study, after production by recombinant Bacillus subtilis (BGSC-1A751), carrying pHV1431:: subc gene in the complex medium and separation of solids from the fermentation broth, serine alkaline protease (SAP) was dried in order to investigate the stabilization during spray drying and subsequent storage. The effect of air inlet temperature of the spray dryer between T = 70 and 130 degrees C and the effect of protective additives, glucose and maltodextrin, at 0-2% (w/v) on SAP activity during spray dryi...
