Design of isolated bridges for adaptive seismic performance using gapped hysteretic damper connections
Dicleli, Murat (null; 2018-08-03)
Hysteretic dampers in bridges with seismically isolated decks are usually coupled with shock transmitters in order to prevent their engagement during thermal displacements of the deck. An alternative design approach is presented in this paper where the dampers are attached to the deck using elongated holes (gaps) which are sized to accommodate the thermal displacements and hence to keep the dampers from being activated during thermal displacements. The gaps are sized based on the expected maximum thermal di...
EFFECTS OF PIN FIN SHAPE AND SIZE ON TURBINE BLADE TRAILING EDGE FLOW AND HEAT TRANSFER
Tuncel, Tugba; Kahveci, Harika Senem (2019-01-01)
In modern turbine blades, pressure-side cutbacks with film-cooling slots stiffened with lands and pin fins that are embedded in passages are used to cool trailing edges. There are many studies that have investigated these cooling configurations from a thermal perspective, while only a limited number have been concerned with the aerodynamic aspects. This study presents a thorough computational investigation of a film-cooling configuration to determine the optimum combination of shape and size of pin arrays. ...
Fundamental Concepts of Performance Based Earthquake Engineering
Sucuoğlu, Haluk (null; 2015-08-29)
In modern earthquake engineering, seismic performance properties are more important than the resistance properties of structures. Seismic performance of a structure is related to the expected damage level under an earthquake excitation, and how this damage relates to safety and use of the building. Accordingly, estimation of member deformations becomes more critical than the estimation of internal forces since the deformations in the post elastic regions of the structure are well correlated with damage in t...
DEVELOPMENT OF ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK BASED DESIGN TOOL FOR AIRCRAFT ENGINE BOLTED FLANGE CONNECTION SUBJECT TO COMBINED AXIAL AND MOMENT LOAD
Sanli, T. Volkan; Gürses, Ercan; Çöker, Demirkan; Kayran, Altan (2017-11-09)
Bolted flange connections are one of the most commonly used joint types in aircraft structures. Typically, bolted flange connections are used in aircraft engines. The main duty of a bolted flange connection in an aircraft engine is to serve as the load transfer interface from one part of the engine to the other part of the engine. In aircraft structures, weight is a very critical parameter which has to be minimized while having the required margin of safety for the structural integrity. Therefore, optimum d...
Critical Truck Loading Pattern to Maximize Live Load Effects in Skewed Integral Bridges
Dicleli, Murat (2014-05-01)
An integral bridge (TB) is one in which the abutments are cast monolithically with the deck to form a rigid frame structure. When the geometry and conditions do not allow for designing straight IBs, skewed IBs (SIBs) are designed. Current bridge design specifications are mainly developed for regular jointed bridges. Thus, provisions for SIBs have not been included in these specifications yet. Consequently, to determine live load effects in SIB components, many practicing engineers built a three-dimensional ...
