Design for the Next: Integration of Path to Sustained Usage Model into Design Process

Karahanoğlu, Armağan
Bakırlıoğlu, Yekta
The aim of this chapter is to evaluate and further discuss the integration of the “Path to Sustained Usage” model into design process. To achieve this, this chapter explains the details and the outcomes of Engage! Workshop in which the model was tested with “backwards-designing” approach. The paper ends with further suggestions for application of the model into design process.


Design directions for product attacment and sustainability through enabling user involvement
Bilgin, Pelin; Turhan, Senem; Department of Industrial Design (2022-2)
This thesis study aims to explore the ways for considering product attachment in the early phases of design within the context of a field study. The influence of user involvement on product attachment was taken into consideration as the focus of the study. The study includes an extensive literature review along with preliminary research aimed at exploring the field. To explore the relationship between user involvement and product attachment, a diverse group of participants, who were able to strengthen their...
Modelling user experience: integrating user experience research into design education
Töre Yargın, Gülşen; Günay, Aslı (null; 2018-07-20)
The last two decades have given a new lease of life to the interpretation of users’ interactions with products in human-computer interaction (HCI) and design domains. As a fast growing field, user experience (UX) brought along multifarious endeavors to frame this new field’s definition and components. In the midst of this burgeoning field, many design related domains started to embrace the terms experience, services, and systems rather than a mere product focus. Academia’s efforts to define what UX really i...
Design scaling of aeroballistic range models
Kutluay, Ümit; Balkan, Raif Tuna; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2004)
The aim of this thesis is to develop a methodology for obtaining an optimum configuration for the aeroballistic range models. In the design of aeroballistic range models, there are mainly three similarity requirements to be matched between the model and the actual munition: external geometry, location of the centre of gravity and the ratio of axial mass moment of inertia to the transverse mass moment of inertia. Furthermore, it is required to have a model with least possible weight, so that the required tes...
Implementation of k-epsilon turbulence models in a two dimensional parallel navier-stokes solver on hybrid grids
Kalkan, Onur Ozan; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, the popular k-ε turbulence model is implemented on a parallel, 2-dimensional, explicit, density-based, finite volume based Navier-Stokes solver works on hybrid grids, HYP2D. Among the other versions available in the open literature, standard version of the k-ε turbulence mode is studied. Launder-Spalding and Chieng-Launder wall functions are adapted to the turbulence model in order to investigate the effects of the strong gradients in the vicinity of the wall on the turbulence. In order to i...
Guidelines for Successful Public Internet Access Points (PIAPs) Implementation
Arifoğlu, Ali; Er, Erkan (2013-01-01)
This chapter is prepared to explain important aspects and factors to be considered in PIAPs-related projects, especially implemented in country-level. It is likely a guideline offering step-by-step and systematic approach for successfully implementing PIAP projects. The content of the guideline is divided into following sections: Potential PIAP Types, PIAP Services, Management Structure, Operational Structure, How to Create Public Demand, and Critical Success Factors.
