Physical Changes in White and Brown Rice during Simulated Gastric Digestion
KONG, Fanbin; Öztop, Halil Mecit; SINGH, R. Paul; MCCARTHY, Michael J. (2011-08-01)
Previous studies have shown that brown rice generates lower glycemic responses than white rice, a trait that may be beneficial in the dietary management of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hyperlipidemia. The objective of this study was to investigate influence of rice digestion on the physical properties of the gastric digesta that may further impact intestinal absorption. A dynamic stomach model, human gastric simulator, was used to simulate the gastric digestion of white and brown rice. The pH, soli...
Physical correlates of neighborliness in apartment buildings
Yetken, Cengiz; Le Compte, Ayhan (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 1975)
Bu raporda, apartman binalarında, bir davranış değişkeni olarak komşuluğun sistematik olarak incelenmesi ve çeşitli fiziksel çevre indeksleriyle yapılan karşılaştırılmasında çıkan sonuçlar anlatılmaktadır. (a) Bir apartmanda oturan toplam kişilerin birbirlerini tanıma yüzdesi 30-70 arasındadır. (b) Bu tür çalışmalarda ekolojik indekslerle, kantitatif ilişkiler kurulabilmektedir. (c) Tanıma ve tanınma, dairelerin birbirlerine yakınlıkları ve apartman giriş kapısından olan uzaklıkları ile doğru orantılıdır. D...
Physical pain in user-product interaction
Dikdur, Ezgi; Sonneveld, Marieke; Pedgley, Owaın Francıs; Department of Industrial Design (2011)
The main focus of the multidisciplinary nature of design is to provide users a better life in terms of enabling the products to be safe, usable and pleasurable to use. Therefore, physical pain is always avoided. However, physical pain is involved in our daily lives, not only as an avoided concept, but also as a constructive concept. It is used for functional or hedonic purposes; whether consciously or not. The focus in this research is exploring these ‘used’ pains, and their relations to product design; in ...
Physical control of the spatial and temporal diversity of microbial mats at a shallow water hydrothermal vent

Shallow-water hydrothermal vents are ubiquitous but poorly studied geothermal environments. The active hydrothermal emissions of the Milos hydrothermal system support complex microbial mats, which are fundamental in engineering the environmental niche in which extremophiles thrive. Because of the shallow depth, the mat community is wiped out during every major storm, when swell and wave action increase, and then it reconstitutes itself over a brief period of time (days). Here we report the results of a join...
Spatial variations of active stress patterns and frequencymagnitude distribution of earthquakes in Western Anatolia, Turkey
Shah, S Tanvir; Özacar, Atilla Arda (null; 2018-04-23)
Western Anatolia is one of the most important tectonic elements of Turkey, and constitutes the eastern margin of Aegean Extensional Province. The area is one of the most seismically active continental margins around the globe experiencing N-S extension. Earthquake data in this study is used to analyze the active stress patterns and to estimate the earthquake return periods for different sub-regions in western Anatolia. Focal mechanism solution data is used for determining the orientations and ratios of prin...
