Comparative evaluation of steel mesh, steel fiber and high performance polypropylene fiber-reinforced concrete in panel/beam tests
Ceylan, Semih; Turanlı, Lütfullah; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
Comparison of concrete mixtures containing steel mesh, steel fiber and polypropylene fibers were evaluated in terms of toughness, flexural strength, compressive strength and split tensile strength. Five types of concrete were prepared with steel mesh, steel fiber and polypropylene fiber with the identical water/cement (w/c) ratio and the identical workability. 10x60x60 cm plates, 8x8x32 cm beams and 10x20 cm cylindrical concrete specimens were prepared. Compressive strength, split-tensile strength and tough...
Overlapping lattice modeling for concrete fracture simulations using sequentially linear analysis
Aydın, Beyazıt Bestami; Binici, Barış; Tuncay, Kağan; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
Estimation of the crack location and width in concrete structures is important due to the sustained damage in structures as a result of extreme loads and aging. The location and width of cracks are the most influential parameters for making decisions on the structure service life. Despite significant developments, the computational modelling of concrete fracture initiation and propagation are still challenging tasks. Many different numerical approaches, most of them based on finite element analysis, have be...
Pseudo-Dynamic Testing and Analytical Modeling of AAC Infilled RC Frames
Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2014-01-01)
Two concrete frames were tested by the PsD procedure. One frame was bare and the other was infilled with AAC blocks in the middle bay. The objective was to determine the effect of AAC infills on the seismic performance of reinforced concrete frames and developing an AAC strut model. Based on the test results, it was found that AAC infill panels did not modify the deformation response of the RC test frame significantly; however, shear in diagonal strut must be considered in boundary column design. A shear de...
Silicon nanostructures for electro-optical and photovoltaic applications
Kulakcı, Mustafa; Turan, Raşit; Department of Physics (2012)
Recently extensive efforts have been spent in order to achieve all silicon based photonic devices exploiting the efficient light emission from nanostructured silicon systems. In this thesis, silicon based nanostructures have been investigated for electro-optical and photovoltaic applications. The thesis focused on three application areas of silicon nanostructures: Light emitting diode (LED), light modulation using quantum confined Stark effect (QCSE) and photovoltaic applications. In the context of LED appl...
