A new experimental apparatus, designed principally for a high sensitivity search for nu( --> mu(tau) oscillation, has been successfully constructed and made operational by the CHORUS Collaboration for the CERN-WA95 experiment. It consists of a large emulsion target, a scintillating fiber tracker system with optoelectronics read-out, an air-core magnet, a set of trigger hodoscopes, a calorimeter based on the lead/scintillating-fiber technique, and a muon spectrometer. The design, construction and performance of the entire apparatus and of the different detectors are described.


The trigger system of the CHORUS experiment
van Beuzekom, MG; et. al. (1999-05-21)
A new apparatus for detection of nu(mu) --> nu(tau) oscillation has been successfully constructed and operated by the CHORUS Collaboration for the CERN-WA95 experiment. The design, implementation and performance of the electronic trigger system is described. A trigger efficiency of 99% was measured for nu(mu) charged-current events and 90% for neutral-current events.
The pulse frequency noise of magnetars and persistent accretion powered pulsars
Serim, Danjela; Baykal, Altan; Department of Physics (2021-2-03)
In this thesis, the pulse frequency fluctuations of magnetars and six selected persis-tent accreting powered pulsars (PAPPs) are presented. Using the data fromRXTE,XMM-Newton, Chandra, SwiftandFERMIobservatories, the timing noise behav-ior of individual sources on various timescales are examined, depending on the datasampling rate of input frequency measurements. The timing noise amplitudes are an-alyzed via two separate methods, namely∆8andr.m.smethods. The timing noisecharacteristics of both magne...
Active vibration control of a smart beam : a spatial approach
Kırcalı, Ömer Faruk; Yaman, Yavuz; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2006)
This study presented the design and implementation of a spatial Hinf controller to suppress the free and forced vibrations of a cantilevered smart beam. The smart beam consists of a passive aluminum beam with surface bonded PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches. In this study, the PZT patches were used as the actuators and a laser displacement sensor was used as the sensor. In the first part of the study, the modeling of the smart beam by the assumed-modes method was conducted. The model correction techniqu...
Evaluation of the Performance Limit States of Reinforced Concrete Columns in View of Experimental Observations
Acun, Bora; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2011-07-01)
In this study, twelve full-scale column specimens designed for pure flexure were tested under repetitive displacement cycles with high amplitude. Two typical column designs were employed in the production of samples representing sub-standard and code-conforming columns, respectively. The main variable in the experiments was the histories of the imposed displacement amplitudes. The deformation-based performance limits proposed by Eurocode 8, ASCE/SEI 41 and Turkish Seismic Code (TDY-2007) for sub-standard co...
Active Vibration Suppression of a Smart Beam by Using an LQG Control Algorithm
Onat, Cem; Şahin, Melin; Yaman, Yavuz (2011-06-22)
The aim of this study was to design and experimentally apply a Linear Quadratic Gaussian (LQG) controller for the active vibration suppression of a smart beam. The smart beam was a cantilever aluminum beam with eight symmetrically located surface-bonded PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches which were utilized both as sensor or actuator depending on their location. A group of PZT patches closed to the root of the beam was used as actuators in the bimorph configuration and a single patch was nominated as a s...
