In this study, we have developed an efficient metamaterial (MTM)-based portable fuel oil sensor in order to distinguish branded and unbranded fuel-oil samples. Electromagnetic properties of the fuel-oil samples are experimentally obtained and these data are defined in numerical analysis to design and test the performance of MTM sensor. Then, simulated MTM-based sensor structure is fabricated and measured to observe the efficiency and agreement to numerical results. Numerical and experimental studies are conducted in the microwave frequencies of 10-11 GHz. The experiment results are in accordance with the simulation ones. It can be seen from the results that the proposed MTM-based sensor can be implemented into the sensor industry for distinguishing the branded and unbranded fuel oil for several frequency regions.

Tumkaya, Mehmet Ali; Dincer, Furkan; KARAASLAN, MUHARREM; Sabah, Cumali (2017-08-01)
A metamaterial-based sensor has been realized to distinguish authentic and inauthentic fuel samples in the microwave frequency regime. Unlike the many studies in literature on metamaterial-based sensor applications, this study focuses on a compact metamaterial-based sensor operating in the X-band frequency range. Firstly, electromagnetic properties of authentic and inauthentic fuel samples were obtained experimentally in a laboratory environment. Secondly, these experimental results were used to design and ...

Tumkaya, Mehmet Ali; KARAASLAN, MUHARREM; Sabah, Cumali (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-01)
In this paper, we present, design and analyze a metamaterial (MTM) based sensor to distinguish different types of gasoline and diesel samples. Electromagnetic characterization of the samples is completed experimentally and the obtained data is used in the numerical analysis and in the design of the proposed sensor. Unlike the other studies performed in the literature, this structure offers a highly efficient sensing ability and operates in x-band frequency regime. The designed structure is fabricated and th...
Obtaining hybrid fuel briquettes using local biomass and fossil fuel resources
Ulusoy Tasar, Aslı; Altun, N. Emre.; Department of Mining Engineering (2019)
This study aims at obtaining a hybrid fossil fuel-biomass fuel by blending olive pomace and lignite in varying amounts (10-50% by weight). The main objective is to combine the positive characteristics of both fuel types to rehabilitate their unfavorable sides that are potential drawbacks against their broader utilization. The suggested hybrid fuel is anticipated to be an effective, environmentally sound, and sustainable fuel alternative. To obtain the hybrid fuel, olive pomace from the Aegean region in Turk...
Metamaterial Sensor Applications Based on Broadside Coupled SRR and V Shaped Resonator Structures
EKMEKÇİ, EVREN; Sayan, Gönül (2011-07-08)
In this study, the use of broadside-coupled SRR (BC-SRR) metamaterial topology is suggested for pressure, temperature, humidity and concentration sensor applications. Also, the use of V-shaped resonator topology is suggested for pressure sensor application. The feasibility of such sensors are demonstrated by numerical simulations for microwave region under magnetic excitation.
Combinatorial development of LSC-113/LSC-214 cathode materials for intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells
Sarı, Doğancan; Öztürk, Tayfur; Kalay, Yunus Eren; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2017)
Solid oxide fuel cells are environmentally friendly, efficient and fuel versatile energy conversion devices which suffer from high operating temperatures. For lowering the operating temperatures of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), LSC-113/LSC-214 composite cathodes have recently attracted much attention due to their enhanced kinetics. However, the full potential of this novel system is still unknown. In this study, a combinatorial approach was used to develop cathode materials which would reduce operating tem...
