This paper presents a new design and analysis tool that is developed to be employed during the design process of axial flow compressors. The tool chain implemented by this design tool consists of five parts: a mean-line design tool, followed by a blade geometry parametrization tool. Then 3D blade geometry is created, next a high quality structured mesh is generated and completed by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solution. All components employed in the new tool are either new developments, or achieved b...
Development of a visual object localization module for mobile robots
Şahin, Erol (1999-01-01)
Reports preliminary results from the design and implementation of a visual object localization module for mobile robots. The module takes an object-based approach to visual processing and relies on a preprocessing step that segments objects from the image. By tracking the size and the eccentricity of the objects in the image while the robot is moving, the visual object localization module can determine the position of objects relative to the robot using the displacement obtained from its odometry. In locali...
Development of a passive vibration isolation analysis and optimization software for mechanical systems
Baytemir, Ozan Yavuz; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Özgen, Gökhan Osman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
In the design stage of a mechanical structure, the effects of vibration are taken into consideration as important design criteria. In order to eliminate the adverse effects of vibration sources, a direct intervention to the vibration source, structural reinforcement or the use of vibration isolators are encountered as the most popular vibration control methods. Among all, being compact, low cost, reliable and maintenance free, elastomeric passive vibration isolators with linear properties are examined withi...
Development of a sabot design tool for aeroballistic range testing
Kafdağlı, Karaca Efe; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2006)
The aim of this thesis is to investigate the general design and analysis principles of sabots and to develop a sabot design tool. Structures which support and align the models in gun bore, and separate without disturbing the flight path of models are called sabots. In the scope of this study, structurally critical regions and loads acting on sabots due to acceleration in the gun are determined. To calculate the loads acting and to size the sabots, approximate relations are derived by the help of strength of...
Development of an automatic design and analysis tool for axial compressors
Kündeş, Necmettin Anıl; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Baran, Özgür Uğraş; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, an automatic design and analysis tool is developed for the design of an axial flow compressor and to check the required design conditions of the designed compressor by using three dimensional CFD analyses automatically. The developed tool mainly consists of six parts which are mean line design, calculations based on radial equilibrium theory, parametrization, generation of three dimensional blade geometry, mesh generation and solver. A new design study for an axial flow compressor begins wit...
