Surface cracking in an orthotropic medium subjected to frictional contact
Sarikaya, Duygu; Dağ, Serkan (2016-07-01)
This article presents an analytical method capable of resolving the coupled problem of surface cracking in an orthotropic elastic medium subjected to frictional contact by a rigid flat punch. Reciprocal influences between the surface crack and the flat punch are accounted for by establishing a fully coupled formulation. Governing partial differential equations involving the displacement components are derived in accordance with plane theory of orthotropic elasticity. General solutions corresponding to mode ...

Surface Characteristics of Scouring at Bridge Elements
Yanmaz, Ali Melih (2007-03-01)
Infrastructural elements of bridges mounted in alluvial stream beds are susceptible to scouring. Decision-making for the type and placement practice of relevant countermeasures to be implemented against scouringaction is based on investigation of the characteristics of scour holes formed around piers and abutments. Thiswould also lead to the estimation of the safe depth of burial of footings of bridge infrastructural elements.Sets of experiments have been performed to investigate time-dependent characterist...

Surface texturing study with aluminum induced texturing method on soda-lime glass substrates for thin film solar cells
Ünal, Mustafa; Turan, Raşit; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2017)
It is essential to employ an effective light trapping scheme to decrease the cost of produced solar electricity further in thin film solar cell technologies. There are several methods that can be used for light trapping and aluminum induced texturing (AIT) is one of them. The aim of this thesis study is to obtain highly effective light trapping interface via texturing of glass surface by AIT process. The resultant texture is affected by several parameters such as Al thickness, annealing time and temperature...
