Investigation of effects of bird strike problem on wing leading edge by using explicit finite element method
Dede, Oğuzhan; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
In aviation industry, bird strike problem causes structural damage and threats to flight safety. Nowadays, designed and produced aircraft have to satisfy “safe flight and landing” requirements. The behavior of the aircraft components during bird strike have be to investigated by numerical methods or experiments. Results obtained from numerical analysis and /or experiments have to be carefully studied to optimize the aircraft structures. However, experiments of bird strike are very costly and require qualifi...
Comparing the effect of tablet, desktop, paper-pencil based drill practices on spatial skills of vocational high school students
Şenel, Hüseyin Can; Delialioğlu, Ömer; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2019)
The aim of this study is to compare the effect of using drill and practice applications in tablet computers, desktop computers and traditional paper-pencil booklets for enhancing the spatial skills of vocational high school students. For this aim a mixed-method design was used. Quantitative part was aimed to provide data about the development of spatial skills of three group and compare them. Additionally, qualitative part was aimed to seek how participants perceived about the tablet computer based drill-pr...
A Study On Pre-Service Teachers’ Spatial Visualization Ability and Spatial Anxiety
Erkek, Özlem; Isıksal Bostan, Mine; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç (2017-01-01)
This study aims to investigate the pre-service teachers’ spatial visualization ability and spatial anxiety levels with respect to their gender and undergraduate programs. Data were collected from 1007 third and fourth year undergraduate pre-service teachers enrolled in elementary mathematics, science, and early childhood education programs from four universities in Ankara, Turkey. Spatial Visualization Test and the Spatial Anxiety Scale were used as data collection instruments. The results revealed a statis...
A study on sixth grade students’ spatial reasoning regarding 2D representations of 3D objects
Eryaman, Zeynep; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2009)
The main purpose of this study was to investigate the contributions of spatial visualization and spatial orientation tasks regarding 2D representations of 3D objects and isometric drawing to the development of sixth grade students’ spatial reasoning. The study also aimed to investigate students’ performances on spatial tasks during the classes and to explore their views and feelings about the spatial tasks. Data were collected from 24 6th grade students in a private school located in Ankara. The design of t...
Strategies and difficulties in solving spatial visualization problems: a case study with adults
Kayhan, Emine Banu; Bulut, Safure; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2012)
The purpose of the present study is to investigate the spatial strategies of adults and the difficulties they experience while solving spatial visualization problems. To achieve this purpose, a case study is conducted and the case of this study is the group of five adults studying secondary or elementary mathematics education in a public university in Ankara. Spatial Ability Test (SAT) and task based interviews are utilized to determine the participants’ spatial abilities; and to interpret their strategies,...
