Mechanical properties, durability, and life-cycle assessment of self-consolidating concrete mixtures made with blended portland cements containing fly ash and limestone powder
Çelik, Kemal; Akgül, Çağla; Gursel, A. Petek; Mehta, P Kumar; Horvath, Arpad; Monteiro, Paulo JM (2015-02-01)
This paper reports the composition and properties of highly flowable self-consolidating concrete (SCC) mixtures made of high proportions of cement replacement materials such as fly ash and pulverized limestone instead of high dosage of a plasticizing agent or viscosity-modifying chemical admixtures. Self-consolidating concrete mixtures are being increasingly used for the construction of highly reinforced complex concrete elements and for massive concrete structures such as dams and thick foundation. In this...
Mechanical strength of 3D printed objects: experimental and numerical investigation
Başara, Gözde; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
The number of people and the industries that are using 3 Dimensional (3D) printing increases everyday; however, the home-use of 3D printing remains below expectations partially due to limitation in the printer size. Many different technolo-gies can be used in 3D printing. In this study Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is used. This method is commonly used for home-use 3D printing. In FDM, there is a wide range of materials that can be used and for this study the material is chosen as Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) ...
Mechanical characterization and modelling of porous polymeric materials manufactured by selective laser sintering
Tekin, Cevdet Murat; Dağ, Serkan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
Rapid prototyping methods embrace a family of manufacturing methods that are developed to speed up the prototyping stage of product design. The sole needed input for production being the solid model of the part, mold/tool-free production characteristics and the geometric part complexity that can be achieved due to layer-by-layer production have extended the applicability/research areas of these methods beyond prototyping. Local pore formation in part that occurs as a result of the discrete manufacturing nat...
Mechanical characterization of filament wound composite tubes by internal pressure testing
Karpuz, Pınar; Ankara, Osman Alpay; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2005)
The aim of this study is to determine the mechanical characteristics of the filament wound composite tubes working under internal pressure loads, generating data for further investigation with a view of estimating the remaining life cycle of the tubes during service. Data is generated experimentally by measuring the mechanical behavior like strains in hoop direction, maximum hoop stresses that are formed during internal pressure loading. Results have been used to identify and generate the necessary data to ...
