This article concerns the dimensional analysis of the complex thermomechanical problem arising during through-hardening of cylindrical steel components. A complete and independent set of physically based dimensionless numbers was derived using the weak formulation method and the individual effects of dimensionless numbers with sensitive material parameters were investigated by finite element simulations. The results demonstrate potential of the approach in simplification of the model and the identification of physically relevant dimensionless combinations. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V.

Numerical investigation of flow and scour around a vertical circular cylinder
Baykal, Cüneyt; Fuhrman, D. R.; Jacobsen, N. G.; Fredsoe, J. (The Royal Society, 2015-01-28)
Flow and scour around a vertical cylinder exposed to current are investigated by using a three-dimensional numerical model based on incompressible Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations. The model incorporates (i) k-omega turbulence closure, (ii) vortex-shedding processes, (iii) sediment transport (both bed and suspended load), as well as (iv) bed morphology. The influence of vortex shedding and suspended load on the scour are specifically investigated. For the selected geometry and flow conditions, it i...
Silicene nanoribbons: Molecular-dynamics simulations
Ince, Alper; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2011-01-01)
Structural properties of silicene nanoribbons have been investigated by performing classical molecular-dynamics simulations using atomistic many-body potential energy functions at low and room temperatures with finite and infinite lengths. It has been found that finite length models are more likely to form tubular structures at room temperature.
Three dimensional computational analysis of fatigue crack propagation in functionally graded materials
Sabuncuoglu, Baris; Dağ, Serkan; YILDIRIM, BORA (Elsevier BV, 2012-02-01)
This article proposes a new finite elements based three dimensional method developed to study the phenomenon of fatigue crack propagation in functionally graded materials (FGMs). The particular problem examined in detail is that of an initially-elliptical crack located in a functionally graded medium, subjected to mode I cyclic loading. The crack is modelled by employing three dimensional finite elements; and the stress intensity factors (SIFs) around the crack front are computed by the application of the d...
A density functional theory study on the structures and energetics of CdmTen clusters (m + n <= 6)
Pekoz, Rengin; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2009-06-01)
Density functional method has been used to study the structural features and energetics of CdmTen clusters (m + n <= 6). The results presented include the geometric structures, binding energies, Mulliken charges on atoms, vibrational frequencies and the corresponding non-zero infrared intensities, HOMO-LUMO energies and the frontier molecular orbital energy gaps, the most possible dissociation channels and their corresponding energies of the clusters.
Analyzing Fe-Zn system using molecular dynamics, evolutionary neural nets and multi-objective genetic algorithms
Bhattacharya, Baidurya; Kumar, G. R. Dinesh; Agarwal, Akash; Erkoç, Şakir; Singh, Arunima; Chakraborti, Nirupam (Elsevier BV, 2009-10-01)
Failure behavior of Zn coated Fe is simulated through molecular dynamics (MD) and the energy absorbed at the onset of failure along with the corresponding strain of the Zn lattice are computed for different levels of applied shear rate. temperature and thickness. Data-driven models are constructed by feeding the MD results to an evolutionary neural network. The outputs of these neural networks are utilized to carry out a multi-objective optimization through genetic algorithms, where the best possible tradeo...
