In the present and future, the buildings more qualified and energy saved to their inevitable surroundings has turned into a need and turn into a critical research point. To accomplish total decarbonization inside the buildings is vital to change structures from wasteful vitality consumers into net-zero vitality structures. This paper displays a modeled biomimetic way to deal with encourage the implementation of a shielding form to eco-friendly buildings and improve the advancement of the building structure. The shielding type contributes to consumption of energy thanks to the movement of kinetic cells placed on the outer surface of the building, provides comfort for usage and maintains the thermal balance for residents. Our design can be implemented as a coating material reducing cooling and heating electricity consumption for building facades that we will use in smart cities soon and adapted to self-supporting building types.


Sustainable impact evaluation of energy retrofits for school buildings in different climate regions
Uluçay, Jülide Arzu; Pekeriçli, Mehmet Koray; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2019)
Due to increasing importance of the concepts of energy efficiency and sustainability, retrofits for a large portion of existing buildings have become an immediate necessity. In this respect, different retrofit strategies are employed for increasing the efficiency of existing building envelopes, energy sources, electrical and mechanical systems. Among the existing building types for efficiency retrofit are the school buildings, which differ from the rest due to their special function - education. The activit...
Yeniden Kullanıma Adaptasyonda Bina Performansının Kullanıcılar Üzerinden Değerlendirilmesi
Aydın, Dicle; Yaldız, Esra (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2010)
Bu çalışma, yapılış amacı dışında günümüz işleviyle yaşamını sürdürenbir kültür varlığının mekânsal performansının ne olduğunu belirlemekamacıyla yapılmıştır. Problem, yeni işlevin mekânsal ve eylemselgerekliliklerinin saptanması ve varolan mekânların gereksinimlere cevapverme düzeyinin araştırılması olarak ele alınmıştır. Kültür varlığınınmekânsal niteliklerinin, verilen işlevin gereksinimleriyle adapte olmadüzeyi, binanın günümüz kullanıcılarına uygulanan anketlerle, yapılangözlem ve görüşmelerle ortaya k...
A Pilot study on the development of a new sustainable sound absorbing material
Avgın, Seda; Çalışkan, Mehmet; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2014)
Awareness of the nature has a limited capacity and the consideration that the future generations are in danger due to the rapid waste with the development of technology in the last century, is leading to sustainability and green building design concept. The hazardous effects of the industrial materials are coming out, thus, healthier, natural materials and production methods are being discovered to design healthier interior environments. Architectural acoustics requirements are one of the vital topics to pr...
Application of Artificial Neural Networks onBuilding Energy Estimation
Altun, Murat; Ersöz, Ahmet Bahaddin; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Pekcan, Onur (null; 2017-12-11)
Abstract -The decision makers in the building design stage need to give more importance for energy efficient solutions to improve the performance the building in its operational phase. In practice, they are expected to generate alternative designs in the early design stage and use complicated building simulation tools to estimate building energy use of these alternatives more accurately; however, this is a time-consuming procedure and it is difficult to evaluate different alternatives in the limited time of...
Information theory, entropy and urban spatial structure
Esmer, Özcan; Türel, Ali; Department of City and Regional Planning (2005)
Urban planning has witnessed the profound changes in the methodologies of modelling during the last 50 years. Spatial interaction models have passed from social physics, statistical mechanics to non-spatial and spatial information processing stages of progress that can be designated as paradigm shifts. This thesis traces the Maximum Entropy (MaxEnt) approach in urban planning as pioneered by Wilson (1967,1970) and Spatial Entropy concept by Batty (1974) based on the Information Theory and its developments b...
