Determination of hot crack susceptibility in various kinds of steels

Ankara, Alpay
Ari, Haldun Bülent
The aim of this investigation was to study the hot crack susceptibility of some Turkish and German structural steel plates with a modified varestraint-transvarestraint test method. Testing was accomplished using a Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding process. The results of this study revealed that total crack length increases as welding current increases or punch radius or welding speed decreases. An attempt is made to provide explanations for these phenomena. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.


Determination of lead, cadmium and copper in roadside soil and plants in Elazig, Turkey
Bakirdere, Sezgin; Yaman, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-01-01)
The concentrations of lead, cadmium and copper in roadside soil and plants in Elazig, Turkey were investigated. Soil samples were collected at distances of 0, 25 and 50 m from the roadside. The concentrations of lead, cadmium and copper were measured by Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (FAAS). A slotted tube atom trap ( STAT) was used to increase the sensitivity of lead and cadmium in FAAS. Lead concentrations in soil samples varied from 1.3 to 45 mg kg(-1) while mean lead levels in plants ranged f...
Investigation of slow cook-off characteristics of self-igniting energetic materials
Kaya, Zekeriya Taner; Külah, Görkem; Köksal, Murat; Department of Chemical Engineering (2022-2-08)
In this study slow heating response of small-scale test items and full-scale munitions due to thermal decomposition of explosives was investigated. Thermal decomposition parameters of the four most prevalent explosive formulations (from P1 to P4) used in defense industry were determined using non-isothermal thermogravimetric analysis and differential scanning calorimetry. Considering these parameters, an igniter formulation was developed to burn the explosive formulations in a predefined temperature before ...
Characterization of ceramic ware fragments from Aizanoi-Turkey by micro Raman, XRPD and SEM-EDX spectrometry
CANER, EVİN; Güney, Bilge Alp (2017-04-15)
Ceramic fragments from the antique city of Aizanoi, Turkey were investigated by micro Raman spectrometry in conjunction with XRPD and SEM-EDX analyses. Some basic physical characteristics of the ceramic samples were also investigated. Mite and muscovite were determined as the main clay types in the ceramic fragments. Clay used in the production of ceramic wares was found to be calcareous in most of the samples. No high temperature clay minerals were detected in the ceramics. All ceramic fragments were found...
Strength of various sands in triaxial and cyclic direct shear tests
ÇABALAR, ALİ FIRAT; Dulundu, Kemal; Tuncay, Kağan (Elsevier BV, 2013-04-01)
This paper presents the result of an extensive series of experimental investigation carried out in triaxial and cyclic direct shear tests on sands having various properties, which were obtained from different locations in Turkey and in Northern Cyprus. In order to investigate the link between strength and physical properties (i.e., shape) of the sand particles, three series of triaxial tests (Consolidated-Drained, CD; Consolidated-Undrained, CU; and Unconsolidated-Undrained, UU) for each were performed unde...
Evaluation of a Turkish low quality oil shale by flotation as a clean energy source: Material characterization and determination of flotation behavior
Altun, Naci Emre; Hwang, Jiann-Yang; Bagci, A. Suat (Elsevier BV, 2006-09-01)
Evaluation possibility of a low quality Turkish oil shale from Beypazari, Ankara as an alternative clean solid fuel by froth flotation technique was investigated. Oil shale sample was characterized with mineralogical analysis, XRD and FTIR spectrum studies for its mineral content and surface characteristics. The flotation behavior of the sample and extent of cleaning were determined with respect to non-ionizing and ionizing collectors of anionic and cationic types. The effects of collector dosages and pulp ...
