© 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.

Coating of silver nanoparticles on polyurethane film surface by green chemistry approach and investigation of antibacterial activity against S. epidermidis
Kara, Filiz; AKSOY, EDA AYŞE; Aksoy, Serpil; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2022-05-01)
© The Author(s) 2022.Silver nanoparticles with potential antibacterial properties are included in biomaterials for the production of medical devices, which are used for diagnoses or treatment purposes. The aim of the current study was coating the polyurethane (PU) films with silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) due to their antibacterial efficacy. PU films were first modified by chitosan (CH), treated with AgNO3 to let CH chelate with silver ions, and then treated with vitamin-C (vit C) or glucose (Glu) to reduce t...
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...

For permissions, please e-mail: Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis produces a diverse range of secondary metabolites with different structures and activities. Among them, bacilysin is an enzymatically synthesized dipeptide that consists of L-alanine and L-anticapsin. Previous research by our group has suggested bacilysin's role as a pleiotropic molecule in its producer, B. subtilis PY79. H...
Use of Auxetic Infill Structures for the Compensation of Shrinkage in Fused Filament Fabrication Process
Uncu, Rahman; Bacikoglu, Mehmet Canberk; Caliskan, Burak; Yaman, Ulaş (2023-01-01)
The polymer parts fabricated by Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) process deteriorated noticeably in terms of dimensional accuracy due to the thermal processes during the fabrication and cooling phases. Commonly, researchers tend to concentrate on modifying the CAD model or fabricating the parts larger than the nominal then post-processing the artifacts to compensate for shrinkage. This paper investigates the effects of auxetic infill structures on shrinkage compensation. Parts with different internal geomet...
A one-pass predictor-corrector algorithm for the inverse Langevin function
BAŞDEMİR, SELÇUK; Dal, Hüsnü (2022-01-01)
© The Author(s) 2022.Inverse Langevin function has an extensive use in statistical mechanics, polymer chemistry, and physics. Main struggle is that the inverse Langevin function cannot be expressed in an exact analytical form. To this end, many approaches to estimate the inverse Langevin function have been proposed. A trade-off can be observed between level of accuracy and mathematical complexity in the existing approximants in the literature. In the present contribution, a simple, yet efficient one-pass pr...
