Piezoelectric materials are electromechanical energy transducers. They can be utilized actively when energized electrically or passively when connected to a passive shunt circuit. Due to this, they have been suggested for several vibrations suppression and energy harvesting applications. In this thesis, a novel way to attain passive hardening stiffness was suggested by introducing an electrical component for passive nonlinear piezoelectric vibration isolation or energy harvesting. Since piezoelectric materials can be used actively or passively, the introduced component allows it to use of active and passive vibration isolation techniques at the same time. A passive nonlinear component was suggested to be hardening capacitor attained by P-N junction. For the first step of this thesis, conceptual proof that hardening capacitor provides hardening stiffness is demonstrated. The hardening effect in frequency and time domain for single degree of freedom is then studied as the next step. Then the study is extended to piezo attached cantilever beam case. Equations for the beam structure are derived, and they are validated with numerical solutions and tests. It is shown that the test and the numerical simulation results are in agreement with the analytical solutions.

Magnesium is a material of considerable interest for electrochemical as well as thermal energy storage. Carbon coated magnesium or magnesium nanopartciles emebedded in a graphitic matrix could provide solutions to some of the problems currently faced in these application areas. The current study was undertaken to develop Mg-C composites at a variety of length scales. The synthesis was achieved by co-feeding magnesium and methane into an RF thermal plasma reactor. This yielded carbonaceous material with magn...
Energy Harvesting from Piezoelectric Stacks Using Impacting Beam
Ozpak, Yigit; Aykan, Murat; Çalışkan, Mehmet (2015-02-05)
Piezoelectric materials can be used for energy harvesting from ambient vibration due to their high power density and ease of application. Two basic methods, namely, tuning the natural frequency to the operational frequency and increasing the operation bandwidth of the harvester are commonly employed to maximize the energy harvested from piezoelectric materials. Majority of the studies performed in recent years focus mostly on tuning the natural frequency of the harvester. However, small deviations in operat...

Development andcharacterization of activated carbon / transition metal phosphide composites for electrochemical capacitors
Köse, Kadir Özgün; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (null; 2019-09-11)
Electrochemical capacitors are the energy storage devices based mainly on electrical double layer formation. Their power densities are exceptionally high; however, their energy densities are characteristically low to compete various types of batteries in market. Therefore, there have been great amount of studies to enhance electrochemical capacitors’ energy density. Utilization of inorganic materials such as transition metal oxides and/or phosphides is one of the most common strategies to increase energy de...
Chatter reduction in boring process by using piezoelectric shunt damping with experimental verification
Yıgıt, Ufuk; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Budak, Erhan (2017-09-15)
Chatter is a self-excited type of vibration that develops during machining due to process structure dynamic interactions resulting in modulated chip thickness. Chatter is an important problem as it results in poor surface quality, reduced productivity and tool life. The stability of a cutting process is strongly influenced by the frequency response function (FRF) at the cutting point.
