Seismic vulnerabilities and risks for urban mitigation planning in Turkey
Saner, Tugce Sonmez (2015-09-01)
Chronic seismic hazards and resulting secondary impacts as natural conditions of the country, and the loss of robust building and prudent settlement practices as aggravated by rapid population growth make cities the most vulnerable geographical and social entities in Turkey. For the development of risk reduction policies, an essential step is to prioritize settlements according to their vulnerability levels. This could be determined by hazard probabilities and attributes of the building stock of each settle...
Free forming of locally laser heated parts
Özmen, Murat; Tekkaya, A. Erman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
As metals have high formability at elevated temperatures, hot forming is preferred and widely used in manufacturing of complicated geometries. The term أhot formingؤ is usually used if the whole workpiece is processed at elevated temperatures. However, for certain products high formability is required only locally. Forming by local heating is proposed to provide ease of manufacturing of local forms on the workpiece. Also, tools can be simplified by this method. In this study, local laser heating procedures ...
Free forming of locally induction heated specimens
Okman, Oya; Tekkaya, A. Erman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
Hot forming is highly utilized in manufacturing of complex shapes. Relatively low flow stresses of materials at elevated temperatures provide ease of manufacturing. On the other side, the current trend is to replace hot forming with cold forming due to the superior mechanical properties and higher dimensional accuracy of the products and less energy consumption. However, cold forming requires high tooling costs and forming loads. In this study, a new process is proposed for production of complex shaped prod...
Design of smart controllers for hybrid electric vehicles
Özen, Ekin; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
This thesis focuses on the feasibility of designing a commercial hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). In this work, relevant system models are developed for the vehicle including powertrain, braking system, electrical machines and battery. Based on these models ten different HEV configurations are assembled for detailed assessment of fuel consumption. This thesis also proposes a smart power management strategy which could be applied to any kind of HEV configuration. The suggested expert system deals with the exte...
Seismic behavior of vertical reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panel walls
Taghipour, Armin; Canbay, Erdem; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
In this study, the in-plane seismic behavior of autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) vertical load-bearing wall panels is examined. Because of the complex behavior of AAC shear walls under cyclic lateral loading and axial load, the design provisions are fundamentally important. The main objective of this study is to validate proposed design provisions for AAC structures in Turkey. Six specimens with different properties and geometries were constructed and tested at Structural Mechanics Laboratory of METU. Mech...
