Bioclimatic Interventions for Reducing Cooling Energy Demand in Hot and Humid Climates



Bioclimatic interventions for reducing cooling energy demand in hot and humid climates
Dönmez, Burak; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2019)
While development of industry and science has been tremendous, population has also increased dramatically in the last centuries. As a consequence, unchecked consumption of energy mainly based on fossil fuels is the main culprit for triggering climate change worldwide. Meanwhile, an impressive amount of energy is being used for just cooling or heating the existing building stock. The need for energy can be reduced by adopting traditional bioclimatic measures that can be tested for their appropriateness throu...

Synthetic biodegradable polymers are of great value for the preparation of implants that are required to reside only temporarily in the body. The use of biodegradable polymers obviates the need for a second surgery to remove the implant, which is the case when a nondegradable implant is used. After implantation in the body, biomedical devices may be subjected to degradation and erosion. Understanding the mechanisms of these processes is essential for the development of biomedical devices or implants with a ...
Biosensor applications of chiral metamaterials for marrowbone temperature sensing
Sabah, Cumali; Dincer, Furkan; KARAASLAN, MUHARREM; Bakir, Mehmet; ÜNAL, EMİN; Akgol, Oguzhan (2015-11-22)
In this paper, we have designed, simulated, and analyzed a microwave biosensor based on chiral metamaterials (MTMs) to detect pig biological tissues which are widely used as a trial for medical explorations and researches. There are various types of biosensor structures based on MTMs in the literature. However, only a limited number of study is conducted on biosensors based on chiral MTMs; therefore, our study is one of the pioneer works for this type of research. The proposed diamond-shaped resonator-based...
