Benefit-cost analysis for retrofitting of selected residental buildings in İstanbul
Erdurmuş, Salih Buğra; Erant, Engin; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
During the evaluation of the seismic retrofitting option for risk reduction/mitigation measures to be applied over buildings, Benefit Cost Analysis is an often-used method. During this study of Benefit Cost Analysis, the condition that the earthquake can happen just after or sometime after retrofitting will be taken into consideration rather than some approaches that focus on the benefits and costs regarding the annual probability of the occurrence for possible earthquakes. The analysis will use conditional...
Experimental analysis of curved laminated beam
Uzhan, Tevfik; Aşık, Mehmet Zülfü; Department of Engineering Sciences (2010)
In this thesis, experimental studies are carried out on curved laminated glass beams to form a database for the scientists who may like to test their mathematical models. Beams which are only free to rotate and constrained in radial direction at both ends are tested to make the data available for further calculations. Test setup is prepared to minimize error that could occur due to test setup and data readings. Material testing machine and 4 channel data collecting machine are used to measure the signals at...

In this study, we present a technique for generation of hydrogel microdroplets as bioink for droplet deposition of tissues and organs. We also characterized the size and dispersion of the microdroplets. For this purpose, we designed a flow-focusing droplet generator chip in which uncured hydrogel flowing through a 120 µm wide channel was pinched at two sides of the stream of oil flowing along 300 µm wide channels. The chip was fabricated by ultrasonically embossing the features on polymethylmethacrylate (PM...
Computer simulation of grain boundary grooving by anisotropic surface drift diffusion due to capillary, electromigration and elastostatic forces
Akyıldız, Öncü; Oğurtanı, Tarık Ö.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
The aim of this study is to develop a theoretical basis and to perform computational experiments for understanding the grain boundary (GB) grooving in polycrystalline thin film metallic conductors (interconnects) by anisotropic surface diffusion due to capillary, electromigration and elastostatic forces. To this end, irreversible thermo–kinetics of surfaces and interfaces with triple junction singularities is elaborated, and the resulting well-posed moving boundary value problem is solved using the front–tr...
Schedule delay analysis in construction projects: a case study using time impact analysis method
Dayı, Songül; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Architecture (2010)
Inadequate or weak preparatory work before starting construction of any structure may cause serious problems during the construction period. For example, projects without sufficient detailed drawings or construction schedules and a disorganized building site can create many problems in the management and completion of the construction works. Consequently, the cost of construction increases digressively, the construction duration of the project extends and the quality of construction is affected adversely. T...
