Best Option for Reducing On-Campus Private Car-Based CO2 Emissions: Reducing VKT or Congestion?
Altıntaşı, Oruç; Tüydeş Yaman, Hediye (2016-01-01)
Reducing carbon emissions, especially that of private car use, is an inevitable goal of sustainable transportation policies. This study focuses on i) determination of the current level of CO2 emissions from private cars on the Middle East Technical University (METU) campus and ii) evaluation of the impact of different emission reduction scenarios. Such scenarios were based on hypothetical conditions that can either reduce Vehicle-km-travelled (VKT) or congestion on campus, which are defined as the two major...

Alkaya, Emrah; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (2014-12-01)
The European Commission has an objective of improved resource efficiency in manufacturing enterprises (particularly small- and medium-sized enterprises-SMEs) by structural and technological changes. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the concrete improvements as a result of a systematic resource efficiency methodology applied to an SME in surface coating/painting industry in Turkey which is an EU accession country. Within the context of this study, cadmium plating process was substituted with a less t...

ÖZALP, MUSTAFA ASIM; Yildirak, Kasirga; Yolcu Okur, Yeliz (Hacettepe University, 2019-01-01)
We investigate an insurer's optimal investment and liability problem by maximizing the expected terminal wealth under different utility functions. The insurer's aggregate claim payments are modeled by a Levy risk process. We assume that the financial market consists of a riskless and a risky assets. It is also assumed that the insurer's liability is negatively correlated with the return of the risky asset. The closed-form solution for the optimal investment and liability ratio is obtained using Pontryagin's...
Optimal capital structure for build-operate-transfer power projects
Arıcı, Erdem; Arıkan, Metin S.; Department of Civil Engineering (2003)
Observing the deficiencies of traditional methods in meeting the demands of today̕s infrastructure development has been motivating countries towards privatization of these sectors. However, due to the differences in these sectors as compared to other businesses, privatization can not be performed without strict regulations. Today, concession agreements like BOT models seem the best way for solving the problems. Financing of concession agreements plays a key role. In Turkey, most BOT projects are financed by...
