Performance assessment of a solar assisted HVACsystem for a medium-sized office building in Larnaca, North Cyprus



Performance analysis of a solar chimney power plant for rural areas in Nigeria
Okoye, Chiemeka Onyeka; Taylan, Onur (2017-04-01)
Diverse renewable energy technologies are urgently needed, especially for developing countries. This paper aims to create awareness of solar chimney power plants (SCPP) as a viable and sustainable alternative in rural communities with limited or no access to the grid. The study considers site-specific hourly meteorological data in assessing the feasibility of SCPP in seven selected regions in Nigeria. A theoretical model was established for power output, levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) and avoided carb...
Performance analysis of a digital communication system on sea platforms
Şenol, Gökberk; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
The transmission rate and reliability are the most crucial elements of a communication system on sea platforms. In this thesis, the performance of a high speed and reliable communication system that can be used on ship to ship sea platforms will be evaluated. The two ray channel model is used in order to characterize the channel considering the refraction and reflection. Using the channel model, the path loss and the Shannon channel capacities are obtained for different systems. In order to increase the sys...
Performance assessment of a bentonite-sand mixture for nuclear waste isolation at the potential Akkuyu Nuclear Waste Disposal Site, southern Turkey
Akgün, Haluk; Kockar, Mustafa Kerem (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-05-01)
This study assesses the geotechnical performance of a compacted bentonite-sand mixture with a bentonite content ranging from 15 to 30 % by weight to be used as a material component in a waste sealing system. Geotechnical laboratory tests such as compaction, falling head permeability, swelling, unconfined compression and shear strength tests were conducted to select an optimum mixture which eventually led to a recommendation to select an optimum bentonite-sand mixture possessing a bentonite content of 30 % f...

Performance Evaluation of Internal Drains of Earthen Dams
Çalamak, Melih; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2018-12-01)
Seepage is always expected in earthen dams because they are made of porous materials. However, it should be always under control and its amount and pore-water pressures should be kept below acceptable limits. This can be satisfied by installing internal drains. This study reviews the characteristics of blanket, chimney, and toe drains and assesses their suitability and effectiveness for various material types and geometric characteristics in separate cases. Numerical simulations are conducted for steady-sta...
