Destructive effect of magnesium and calcium atoms on TEX

Türker, Lemi
The interaction of TEX (an explosive recently attracts attention) with Mg and Ca atom(s) has been investigated within the limitations of density functional theory at the level of B3LYP/6-311++G(d, p). The effect of Mg in 1:1 mol ratio is very drastic on TEX and one of the NO2 moieties is expelled as preform of nitrite ion. The second Mg atom in the composite (1: 2 mol ratio of TEX: Mg) shows balancing effect of the first Mg atom, thus no bond cleavage occurs but some distortions happen. As for the effect of calcium, in 1:1 and 1:2 (TEX: Ca) ratios nitramine bond cleavage(s) occur(s) drastically. Some structural and quantum chemical data are presented.

Numerical investigation of a dc glow discharge in an argon gas: two-component plasma model
Kemaneci, Efe Hasan; Rafatov, İsmail; Department of Physics (2009)
This thesis deals with a one and two dimensional numerical modeling of a low-pressure DC glow discharge in argon gas. We develop two-component fluid model which uses the diffusion-drift theory for the gas discharge plasma and consists of continuity equations for electrons and ions, as well as Poisson equation for electric field. Numerical method is based on the control volume technique. Calculations are carried out in MATLAB environment. Computed results are compared with the classic theory of glow discharg...
Reactively Sputtered Cu2ZnTiS4 Thin Film as Low-Cost Earth-Abundant Absorber
Adiguzel, Seniha; Kaya, Derya; GENİŞEL, MUSTAFA FATİH; ÇELİK, ÖMER; Tombak, Ahmet; OCAK, YUSUF SELİM; Turan, Raşit (2017-07-01)
Cu2ZnTiS4 thin films have been deposited on glass by the reactive cosputtering technique with high-purity ZnS and Cu and Ti metals as targets and H2S as reactive gas. Cu2ZnTiS4 thin films were obtained at various temperatures and H2S flows and were annealed in H2S atmosphere. The structural, morphological, and optical properties of the Cu2ZnTiS4 thin films were examined by scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, and ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectro...
Analysis and control of gun barrel vibrations
Büyükcivelek, Fırat; Özgen, Gökhan Osman; Dursun, Tolga; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2011)
Modern battle tanks are equipped with gun stabilization systems using gyro and encoder data to stabilize the gun barrel, although these systems are very sensitive and reliable, these systems assume the gun barrel as a rigid beam, and do not use information from.
Properties of reactive magnesia-incorporated cements
Ardoğa, Mehmet Kemal; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Department of Civil Engineering (2022-2)
Magnesium oxide (MgO) has limited use in civil engineering applications. The presence of MgO (especially in free form) in portland cements is limited by the standards due to the risk involved in the gradual hydration of MgO that may lead to disruptive expansions after the cementitious system hardens. However, it is possible to overcome this detrimental effect by calcining magnesite at lower temperatures than that is encountered in the cement kilns and use thus obtained reactive MgO as an additive in cement....
Non-uniform axial electric field in argon glow discharge plasma
Akbar, D.; Bilikmen, S. (IOP Publishing, 2006-05-01)
The non-uniform argon dc glow discharge plasma system has been constructed in a very special design to investigate the effects of variable tube radius on plasma parameters. By using isolated computer controlled three couples of a double probe (TCDP) system, the electron temperature, electron density, the reduced electric field, and electron drift velocity are measured at low and intermediate pressures. It is shown that the electron temperature and reduced electric field (density) decreases (increases) as th...
