Investigating the factors affecting total entrepreneurial activities in Turkey
Özdemir , Özlem; Karadeniz , Esra (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2011-12-1)
This study investigates the effects of demographic characteristics of individuals (age, gender, income level, education level, and work status) and their perceptions about themselves (networking, fear of failure, alertness to opportunities, self-confidence) on their involvement to the total entrepreneurial activities of Turkey. Data are collected through using the standard questionnaire of Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) project. The results show that being male, having higher income and education lev...
Investigating the relationship between the recent investments on construction sector and some economic indicators of Turkey
Aydın, Aykut; Özdemir, Özlem; Department of Business Administration (2016)
Construction industry is believed to constitute a significant part of the economic development and there are quite noteworthy studies that analyze the relationship between construction industry investments and economic development. This study attempts to find out this causal relationship by using Toda and Yamamoto Augmented VAR model for Granger Non-causality. In addition, two separate models are used in order to detect the effects of specific construction activities such as residential, commercial and indu...
Investigating the effects of climate change on the surface runoff potential over Kızılırmak basin
Barkış, Numan Burak; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul; Department of Civil Engineering (2022-9-2)
The aim of this study is to analyze the expected change in the surface runoff potential that will occur due to climate change in the Kızılırmak Basin until 2100. HBV hydrological model was run in this study to investigate the expected change in 3 sub-basins (SB 1535, SB 1541, and SB 1545) of Kızılırmak Basin. Total of 56 CMIP5-based GCM/RCM daily model datasets, downloaded from CORDEX EUR-11 at 0.110 spatial resolution and reflect RCP 8.5 emission scenario, were utilized. Among these model datasets, 10 of t...
Investigating the dominant factors regarding ignition transient in the design procedure of the nozzle of a pyrogen igniter
Yeşilyurt, Yavuz; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
In a standard solid rocket motor (SRM) system, the propellant of the SRM is generally ignited by a pyrotechnic device (which is much smaller in size compared to SRM itself). However, grand systems like solid propellant Space Propulsion Systems need more mass flow rate in a very short time duration to be ignited, which is not easy task for a pyrotechnic igniter. The solution for this issue is utilizing pyrogen igniter in the SRM system, which is both a small-scale SRM and an igniter. Here ignition transient ...
Investigating the drinking and surface water quality and associated health risks in a semi-arid multi-industrial metropolis (Faisalabad), Pakistan
Mahfooz, Yusra; Yasar, Abdullah; Sohail, Muhammad Tayyab; Tabinda, Amtul Bari; Rasheed, Rizwan; Irshad, Samina; Yousaf, Balal (2019-07-01)
Urban areas under the influence of multi-industrial activities with arid and semi-arid environments witness the significant increase in environmental pollution especially in the water sector. The present study evaluated the water quality and associated health risk assessment through heavy metal pollution. Drinking (n = 48) and surface (n = 37) water samples were collected from semi-arid multi-industrial metropolis, Faisalabad, Pakistan. Physio-chemical and biological parameters and different metals (Al, As,...
