Hydric dilation of Mount Nemrut sandstones and its control by surfactants

Akoglu, Kiraz Goze
Caner-Saltik, Emine N.
Hydric dilation measurements of Mount Nemrut sandstones, using a linear variation differential transformer (LVDT), were used to quantify in order to understand the effect of wetting-drying cycles on Mount Nemrut sandstones. Trials with some surfactants to inhibit swelling, resulting from the clay minerals in the structure, were investigated in order to propose some conservation treatments for the Mount Nemrut monument sandstones. The hydric dilation measurements of surfactant-treated sandstones showed some decrease in swelling. Diaminoalkine (DAA) seemed to be most successful surfactant for the inhibition of clay swelling, which is in accordance with previous studies. In this study, hydric dilation was decreased by 40% with the use of DAA. (C) 2014 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.

Unsaturated hydraulic conductivity K values as a function of soil‐water pressure head h were measured in the soil at 75 cm depth at 70 different sites separated from one another by a distance of l m along a horizontal transect. K field was viewed as a random function of spatial location x. Field data were analyzed (1) to examine the isotropy and stationarity of K, (2) to check the ergodicity of K in the mean and covariance functions, and (3) to characterize the distribution properties of K by estimating the...
Exponential Smoothing of Multiple Reference Frame Components With GPUs for Real-Time Detection of Time-Varying Harmonics and Interharmonics of EAF Currents
Balouji, Ebrahim; Salor, Ozgul; Ermiş, Muammer (2018-11-01)
In this research work, a multiple synchronous reference frame (MSRF)-based analysis method, used together with exponential smoothing (ES) to accurately obtain the time-varying harmonics and interharmonics of electric arc furnace (EAF) currents, is proposed. The proposed method has been implemented on NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960 graphics card for the parallel processing of all harmonics and interharmonics so that real-time processing of the EAF currents obtained from a measurement point of the electricity transmi...
Time domain Gauss-Newton seismic waveform inversion in elastic media
Sheen, Dong-Hoon; Tuncay, Kağan; Baag, Chang-Eob; Ortoleva, Peter J. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2006-12-01)
We present a seismic waveform inversion methodology based on the Gauss-Newton method from pre-stack seismic data. The inversion employs a staggered-grid finite difference solution of the 2-D elastic wave equation in the time domain, allowing accurate simulation of all possible waves in elastic media. The partial derivatives for the Gauss-Newton method are obtained from the differential equation of the wave equation in terms of model parameters. The resulting wave equation and virtual sources from the recipr...
Elliptical Pin Fins as an Alternative to Circular Pin Fins for Gas Turbine Blade Cooling Applications Part 2 Wake Flow Field Measurements and Visualization Using Particle Image Velocimetry
Uzol, Oğuz (null; 2001-06-07)
Extensive wake flow field measurements and visualizations are conducted using particle image velocimetry (PIV) inside the wakes of the elliptical and circular pin fin arrays in order to better understand the flow physics and the loss mechanisms of these devices. The true-mean velocity field inside the wake two diameters downstream of the pin fin arrays is obtained by collecting and ensemble averaging a large number of PIV samples in the midplane of the test section. Additional experiments are also conducted...
Nonlinear 3D Modeling and Vibration Analysis of Horizontal Drum Type Washing Machines
Baykal, Cem; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit (2020-01-01)
In this study, a nonlinear 3-D mathematical model for horizontal drum type washing machines is developed considering rotating unbalance type excitation. Nonlinear differential equations of motion are converted into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations by using Harmonic Balance Method (HBM). The resulting nonlinear algebraic equations are solved by using Newton’s method with arc-length continuation. Several case studies are performed in order to observe the effects of orientation angles of springs and damp...
