In this study we obtain the phase line equations for the nematic-smectic A (NA), smectic A-smectic C (AC) and nematic-smectic C (NC) transitions using a mean field model. We fit these phase line equations to the experimental phase diagram near the Nenatic-smectic A-smectic C (NAC) point. Our calculated phase diagram agrees well with the experimental.

A phase diagram near the NAC point in liquid crystals
Salihoglu, S; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Enginer, Y (2002-07-01)
In this study using a mean field model we obtain the phase line equations for the NA. NC and AC transitions near the NAC point in a mixture of liquid crystals. We then fit these phase line equations to the experimental data. This fitting shows that our theoretical phase diagram predicts the correct experimental behaviour of the phase diagram in a mixture of liquid crystals.
The DRBEM solution of incompressible MHD flow equations
Bozkaya, Nuray; Tezer, Münevver (Wiley, 2011-12-10)
This paper presents a dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) formulation coupled with an implicit backward difference time integration scheme for the solution of the incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow equations. The governing equations are the coupled system of Navier-Stokes equations and Maxwell's equations of electromagnetics through Ohm's law. We are concerned with a stream function-vorticity-magnetic induction-current density formulation of the full MHD equations in 2D. The stream f...
A phase diagram for the ice VI-VII-VIII transitions
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (1998-04-01)
In this study we obtain the P-T phase diagram for the ice VI-VII-VIII phase transitions by means of the mean held model developed here. We have fitted the experimentally measured P-T data to our phase Line equations. Our calculated phase diagram describes adequately the observed behavior of the ice VI-VII-VIII phase transitions.
Application of the spectroscopic modifications of Pippard relations to NaNO2 in the ferroelectric phase
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2001-01-01)
This study examines a linear variation of the specific heat C-P with the frequency shifts 1/nu(partial derivative nu/partial derivativeT) for the Brillouin frequencies of the L-mode [010], [001] and [100] in the ferroelectric phase of NaNO2 according to our spectroscopically modified Pippard relation. We obtain this linear relationship for those modes studied and calculate dT(C)/dP in the ferroelectric phase of NaNO2. Our calculated values of dT(C)/dP for the [001] and [100] modes are in good agreement with...
A GPU accelerated level set reinitialization for an adaptive discontinuous Galerkin method
KARAKUS, A.; WARBURTON, T.; AKSEL, MEHMET HALUK; Sert, Cüneyt (Elsevier BV, 2016-08-01)
GPU accelerated high order reconstruction of signed distance function of the level set method is studied. The flow based reinitialization equation is discretized in space by using a nodal discontinuous Galerkin method on adaptive unstructured grids. Artificial diffusion with a modal decay rate based regularity estimator is used to damp out high frequency solution components near kinks, where mesh adaptivity is applied. A two rate Adams-Bashforth time integrator is developed to avoid time step restrictions r...
