© 2021 Wiley-VCH GmbHThe energy efficiency, mechanical durability, and environmental compatibility of all moving machine components rely heavily on advanced lubricants for smooth and safe operation. Herein an alternative family of high-quality liquid (HQL) lubricants was derived by the catalytic conversion of pre- and post-consumer polyolefin waste. The plastic-derived lubricants performed comparably to synthetic base oils such as polyalphaolefins (PAOs), both with a wear scar volume (WSV) of 7.5×10−5 mm−3....

Thermal imaging based on mechanical vibrations
Yılmaz, Şener; Azgın, Kıvanç; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2022-8-19)
The thesis proposes a digital, resonance readout method based on a lock-in based digital phase locked loop (DPLL) mechanism, which is designed, simulated, implemented and tested using a Xilinx made Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Implementation is performed using a hardware descriptive language (VHDL) on low level. Certain digital signal processing algorithms such as lock-in detection, DPLL, DDS and CORDIC are implemented, simulated and tested. Moreover, the design is shown to be capable of resonating...
Electromagnetic simulation and optimization of an electromagnetic launcher
Ceylan, Doğa; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
Electromagnetic launcher (EML) is an electromagnetic accelerator which uses electrical pulse power instead of conventional gunpowder. A large amount of electric current in the pulse waveform flows in the rails and armature. This current creates large magnetic field between rails. As a result of Lorentz force, armature and projectile accelerate. In this study, finite element (FE) model of an EML which includes both pulsed power supply (PPS) circuits with 2~MJ total electrical energy and barrel with 3~m lengt...
