One of the major activities of AGARD panels is to form working groups, which assemble experts who work on the particular subject for two or three years. As a result of the work, an advisory report is published, which compiles the state-of-the-art knowledge on the chosen specific topic. This paper explains the philosophy and procedures adopted during the formation of working groups of the Propulsion and Energetics Panel. Working groups concerning gas turbine technologies are presented. The selected working groups aim to improve the computational and experimental knowledge that would lead to the design of advanced aero gas turbine engines. Objective, scope, procedure, and important results of each working group will be explained. Working groups that were active during the 1980s and which were presently active are covered.


Forced Response Prediction of Constrained and Unconstrained Structures Coupled Through Frictional Contacts
Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Menq, Chia-Hsiang (ASME International, 2009-03-01)
In this paper, a forced response prediction method for the analysis of constrained and unconstrained structures coupled through frictional contacts is presented. This type of frictional contact problem arises in vibration damping of turbine blades, in which dampers and blades constitute the unconstrained and constrained structures, respectively. The model of the unconstrained/free structure includes six rigid body modes and several elastic modes, the number of which depends on the excitation frequency. In o...
New method for investigation of parameters of real thermoelectric modules
AHISKA, RAŞİT; Ahiska, K. (Elsevier BV, 2010-02-01)
In the present study, a new method to investigate all output parameters of a thermoelectric module has been developed. The new method bases on the thermoemf measurement of a working module and the comparison of the results with those of classical methods. The new method is employed in investigation of the parameters of a standard thermoelectric module of Melcor with production code of CP1.0-127-05L. The theoretical results calculated by the means of new and classical methods for the parameters of an actual ...

The primary objective of this proposal is to carry the results, knowledge, and international collaboration gained throughout our first project (NANOBIOSOENS) that was conducted as a part of IRSES call in the last 3 years to the next level, which will focus on nanodevices and advanced applications. The proposed research project is focused on two different applications, main one being on biosensors and bioelectronics and the other one on potential solar energy science. The results obtained during NANOBIOSENS ...
Biodiesel: An alternative fuel in EU and Turkey
Akbas, C. Y.; Ozgur, E. (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
The energy issue is an extensively discussed subject. There are many concerns about the future of energy supply for human beings. Conventional sources are declining and the newcomers are starting to take place. Biodiesel is one of these alternatives and may be the most important one among the renewable energy sources for its convenience in usage as a fuel in the transportation sector. Although biodiesel was developed some two to three decades ago, it is not commonly used, mainly due to high production costs...
Incorporation of generator maintenance scheduling with long-term power sector forecasting and planning studies
Ilseven, Engin; Göl, Murat (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2020-07-01)
The objective of this study is to propose a dynamic generator maintenance scheduling (GMS) algorithm for long-term power sector forecasting and planning studies in which electricity price and the resulting supply composition are determined with merit-order dispatch. Compatible with the GMS algorithm, a reasonable strategy for the utilisation of storage hydropower plants along with clear definitions for each stage including must-run renewable electricity generation modelling, calculation of reserve capacity,...
