Investigation of the Effects of Uncertainties on the Reliability Estimation of a Hydraulic Structure



Investigation of the effects of temperature on physical and mechanical properties of monolithic refractory made with pozzolanic materials
Mörel, Bayram Murat; Turanlı, Lutfullah; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
In recent years, scientific studies are carried out to find new refractory material. Having good mechanical properties under very high temperatures, refractories are widely used in industries like iron, steel, glass, cement and pottery. Researches are focused on monolithic refractory making because of their superior properties comparing to conventional firebrick refractories. Providing a mono-block body, having no joints makes the monolithic refractories more durable at elevated temperatures. Easier product...
Investigation of the dynamic properties of ferroelectric crystals close to phase transitions
Kiracı, Ali; Erkoç, Şakir; Department of Physics (2015)
In this thesis we investigated the dynamical properties of some ferroelectric crystals and ceramics under various temperature and pressure conditions close to the phase transitions. In particular, we focused on the Raman frequencies, damping constant and the activation energy of soft modes with the pseudospin-phonon coupling in some ferroelectric crystals exhibiting phase transitions. We predicted the critical behavior of the frequency related to the order parameter (spontaneous polarization) in the ferroel...
Investigation of the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software on fault-proneness
Gölcük, Halit; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This study investigates the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software, which are observable at the model level of the software developed by means of Unified Modeling Language (UML), on software quality, assessing quality in terms of fault-proneness. In the scope of this thesis study, real-time embedded software components developed by Aselsan, a leading defense industry company in Turkey, were analyzed. The correlation between software metrics measured from the UML models of the soft...
Investigation of the impact of aggregate segregation on rutting resistance of asphalt concrete
Yücel, Ayhan Öner; Güler, Murat.; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
In this study, effect of aggregate segregation on rutting resistance of asphalt concrete is investigated using laboratory compacted specimens. A procedure to determine inhomogeneity level is proposed using 2-dimensional cross section images of asphalt concrete specimens. A redistribution algorithm is developed to assess the aggregate distribution characteristics and inhomogeneity index of the cross sectional images. In order to simulate field conditions, specimens are produced in two different groups: (i) w...
Investigation of the effect of turbulence on entropy generation in turbomachinery
Orhan, Ömer Emre; Uzol, Oğuz; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
The aim of this thesis is to apply a newly developed methodology to calculate entropy production. Entropy production calculations have always attracted attention due to its extreme importance in efficiency improvement. Efficiency improvement can be achieved via several optimization techniques and Entropy Generation Minimization (EGM) is one of the most acknowledged ones. When it comes to the design and analysis of turbomachinery components, the performance deterioration due to various real flow effects such...
