A First-Order Linear Model for the Estimation of Detonation Velocity

Türker, Burhan Lemi
A linear multivariable model has been derived for the estimation of detonation velocity. Then, its two simplified forms, first-order linear models, have been proposed as estimators of detonation velocities of a large population of explosives having different skeletal structures. Then, the models are analyzed mathematically and regression equations are obtained and discussed. The first model possesses two independent variables E/M and density, whereas the second one is based on E/M only. The total energy (E) is obtained at the level of UB3LYP/6-31G(d) and M is the molecular weight of the explosive considered.


A search for new phenomena in pp collisions at root s=13TeV in final states with missing transverse momentum and at least one jet using the alpha(T) variable
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-05-01)
A search for new phenomena is performed in final states containing one or more jets and an imbalance in transverse momentum in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The analysed data sample, recorded with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC, corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 2.3 fb(-1). Several kinematic variables are employed to suppress the dominant background, multijet production, as well as to discriminate between other standard model and new physics processes. The search provides se...
A DFT Study on Nitro Derivatives of Pyridine
Türker, Burhan Lemi; Gumus, Selcuk; Atalar, Taner (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
The heat of formation values of all possible nitro derivatives of pyridine have been calculated by the application of various density functional theory (DFT) methods by a proper isodesmic reaction. The heat of formation data trends in series are found to be independent of the selected DFT method, although some differences have been observed in value. Total energies and nucleus-independent chemical shift (NICS(0)) values have also been calculated in order to jugde the aromatic stabilities for the nitropyridi...
A Finite Volume Method for the Relativistic Burgers Equation on a FLRW Background Spacetime
Ceylan, Tuba; Lefloch, Philippe G.; Okutmuştur, Baver (Global Science Press, 2018-02-01)
A relativistic generalization of the inviscid Burgers equation was introduced by LeFloch and co-authors and was recently investigated numerically on a Schwarzschild background. We extend this analysis to a Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) background, which is more challenging due to the existence of time-dependent, spatially homogeneous solutions. We present a derivation of the model of interest and we study its basic properties, including the class of spatially homogeneous solutions. Then, we des...
A theoretical study on nitrourea and its tautomers
Türker, Burhan Lemi; Gumus, Selcuk; Atalar, Taner; Atlanel, Sencer (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
In the present study, nitrourea and its possible tautomers have been subjected to theoretical analysis by performing Hartree-Fock and also density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The optimized geometries, vibrational frequencies, and some thermodynamical values for the presently considered species have been obtained in their ground states.
Partial wave analysis of the first order Born amplitude of a Dirac particle in an Aharonov-Bohm potential
Shikakhwa, MS; Pak, Namık Kemal (American Physical Society (APS), 2003-05-15)
A partial wave analysis using the basis of the total angular momentum operator J(3) is carried out for the first order Born amplitude of a Dirac particle in an Aharonov-Bohm potential. It is demonstrated that the s partial wave contributes to the scattering amplitude in contrast with the case with scalar nonrelativistic particles. We suggest that this explains the fact that the first order Born amplitude of a Dirac particle coincides with the exact amplitude expanded to the same order, where it does not for...
