© The Author(s) 2022.In this study, multilayer carbon fabric-reinforced composites (CFRC) were manufactured by compression molding technique with the combination of carbon fabric and thermoplastic polyether ester elastomer (TPEE) composites. The TPEE-based polymer layers were prepared as binary, ternary, and quaternary composites using carbon black (CB) or N-(β-aminoethyl)-γ-aminopropyl-trimethoxysilane (AEAP) modified carbon black (mCB), ethylene-glycidyl methacrylate copolymer (EGMA) and/or paraffin oil. The effects of formulation additives on multilayer CFRC were investigated in terms of their mechanical, electrical resistivity, electrically stimulated shape memory properties and morphologies. Tensile modulus of neat TPEE included multilayer CFRC increased slightly with the addition of both mCB and oil to TPEE. The highest impact strength of 112.2 kJ/m2 was obtained for TPEE-mCB-EGMA-Oil containing CFRC multilayer composites, which was 30% higher than CFRC with neat TPEE. All modified and reinforced CFRC exhibited higher electrical conductivities than neat TPEE containing CFRC. Electrically triggered bending test showed that combination of TPEE, mCB, EGMA and oil together with carbon fabric in multilayer structure revealed 80% shape recovery ratio within less than 2 min.

The effect of audio description on film comprehension of individuals with visual impairment: A case study in Turkey
Zengin Temırbek uulu, Zeynep; Sağın Şimşek, Sultan Çiğdem; Antonova-Ünlü, Elena (2021-01-01)
© The Author(s) 2021.The present study aimed to investigate the extent to which audio description contributes to the visually impaired individuals’ comprehension of a film by examining the visually impaired and sighted participants’ comprehension of two versions of the same film, one with and the other without supplementary audio description. The results of the study showed that the visually impaired participants were able to comprehend and narrate the events to the same extent as the sighted participants d...
Efficient exascale discretizations: High-order finite element methods
Kolev, Tzanio; et. al. (2021-01-01)
© The Author(s) 2021.Efficient exploitation of exascale architectures requires rethinking of the numerical algorithms used in many large-scale applications. These architectures favor algorithms that expose ultra fine-grain parallelism and maximize the ratio of floating point operations to energy intensive data movement. One of the few viable approaches to achieve high efficiency in the area of PDE discretizations on unstructured grids is to use matrix-free/partially assembled high-order finite element metho...
ABS-Fly Ash Composite Filaments for Fused Deposition Modeling
Alduais, Abdullah; Kazanç Özerinç, Feyza; Bayram, Göknur; Özerinç, Sezer (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is one of the most widely used additive manufacturing techniques for the fabrication of polymeric parts. Earlier applications of FDM mostly utilized pure polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). However, there has recently been an increasing demand for composite FDM filaments to obtain superior mechanical and physical properties. Fly ash (FA), a waste o...
Collision-Free Motion Planning for an Aligned Multiple-Turret System Operating in Extreme Environment
Yerlikaya, Ümit; Balkan, Raif Tuna (2021-01-01)
© The Author(s), 2021. Published by Cambridge University Press.Instead of using the tedious process of manual positioning, an off-line path planning algorithm has been developed for military turrets to improve their accuracy and efficiency. In the scope of this research, an algorithm is proposed to search a path in three different types of configuration spaces which are rectangular-, circular-, and torus-shaped by providing three converging options named as fast, medium, and optimum depending on the applica...

© 2021 The Author(s). Published by Cambridge University Press in association with the European Microwave Association.In this paper, we present a linear to circular polarization converter integrated in a concrete structure to eliminate signal transmission problem originated from the concrete buildings in microwave regime. Two polarization converter samples and a control specimen made by traditional concrete are designed and their signal transmission responses are compared experimentally. Axial ratio values w...
