Performance prediction of underground gas storage in salt caverns
Bagci, A. Suat; Ozturk, E. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
Underground gas storage is a common activity in countries with major transport and distribution gas pipeline infrastructures, which allows to efficiently resolve demand seasonality problems. Subsurface caverns in salt formations are being increasingly used for storage of natural gas. In this study, a real salt cavern having the potential for being an underground gas storage unit was evaluated. A model of the salt cavern was constructed within the gas simulator established for the purposes of this study. The...
Performance evaluation of waste rock dump cover systems in different climate zones of Turkey
Baysal, Barış Can; Yılmaz, Koray Kamil; Department of Geological Engineering (2022-11-24)
One of the tasks to be considered during the closure stage of mining is the closure of the waste rock dump (WRD). A suitable top cover system shall be applied for closure to mitigate the impacts of mine wastes on the environment and human health. The regulatory requirements for closure activities vary from one country to another. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performances of cover system types, including the one that is described in Turkish Mining Waste Regulation (TMWR), for different climat...
Performance prediction of darrieus type vertical axis wind turbines using numerical simulations
Gömeç, Fazıl Selçuk; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
Flow over Darrieus type straight-bladed vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) with NACA 0021 blade profile is simulated using ANSYS Fluent software. SST k- turbulence model is used for the two-dimensional, unsteady simulations. Wind speed is taken as 7 m/s and part of the problem domain including the rotating blades is modeled using the sliding mesh technique. Effects of boundary layer mesh parameters, time step and convergence tolerance on the solution accuracy are investigated with carefully designed runs. ...
Performance Evaluation of Internal Drains of Earthen Dams
Çalamak, Melih; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2018-12-01)
Seepage is always expected in earthen dams because they are made of porous materials. However, it should be always under control and its amount and pore-water pressures should be kept below acceptable limits. This can be satisfied by installing internal drains. This study reviews the characteristics of blanket, chimney, and toe drains and assesses their suitability and effectiveness for various material types and geometric characteristics in separate cases. Numerical simulations are conducted for steady-sta...
Performance analysis of a digital communication system on sea platforms
Şenol, Gökberk; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
The transmission rate and reliability are the most crucial elements of a communication system on sea platforms. In this thesis, the performance of a high speed and reliable communication system that can be used on ship to ship sea platforms will be evaluated. The two ray channel model is used in order to characterize the channel considering the refraction and reflection. Using the channel model, the path loss and the Shannon channel capacities are obtained for different systems. In order to increase the sys...
