Synergistic effects of biochar and processed fly ash on bioavailability, transformation and accumulation of heavy metals by maize (Zea mays L.) in coal-mining contaminated soil
Munir, Mehr Ahmed Mujtaba; Liu, Guijian; Yousaf, Balal; Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Abbas, Qumber; Ullah, Habib (2020-02-01)
In the paper, hydrothermally (HT) treated, sulfuric acid (H2SO4), and hydrochloric acid (HCI) washed fly ashes (FA) were used to examine the applied effects with and without biochar (BC) on the bioavailability of heavy metals (HMs) and growth of maize (Zea mays L) plants in coal -mining contaminated soil. Addition of BC in combination with these processed fly ashes (PFA) significantly increased the soil pH, EC, and soil organic carbon (SOC). Individual application of BC and PFA increased the available conte...

Bamboo-biochar and hydrothermally treated-coal mediated geochemical speciation, transformation and uptake of Cd, Cr, and Pb in a polymetal(iod)s-contaminated mine soil
Munir, Mehr Ahmed Mujtaba; Liu, Guijian; Yousaf, Balal; Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Cheema, Ayesha Imtiyaz; Rashid, Muhammad Saqib; Rehman, Abdul (2020-10-01)
In this study, polymetal(iod)s-contaminated mining soil from the Huainan coalfield, Anhui, China, was used to investigate the synergistic effects of biochar (BC), raw coal (RC), and hydrothermally treated coal (HTC) on the immobilization, speciation, transformation, and accumulation of Cd, Cr, and Pb in a soil -plant system via geochemical speciation and advanced spectroscopic approaches. The results revealed that the BC-2% and BC-HTC amendments were more effective than the individual RC, and/or HTC amendme...
Kinetic analysis of dual impellers on methane hydrate formation
Longinos, Sotirios Nik; Parlaktuna, Mahmut (2021-02-01)
This study investigates the effects of types of impellers and baffles onmethane hydrate formation. Induction time, water conversion to hydrates (hydrate yield), hydrate formation rate and hydrate productivity are components that were estimated. The initial hydrate formation rate is generally higher with the use of Ruston turbine (RT) with higher values 28.93x10(-8)mol/s inRT/RT with full baffle (FB) experiment, but the decline rate of hydrate formation was also high compared to up-pumping pitched blade turb...
A graphical processing unit-based parallel hybrid genetic algorithm for resource-constrained multi-project scheduling problem
Uysal, Furkan; Sönmez, Rifat; İŞLEYEN, SELÇUK KÜRŞAT (2021-03-01)
In this article, we present a parallel graphical processing unit (GPU)-based genetic algorithm (GA) for solving the resource-constrained multi-project scheduling problem (RCMPSP). We assumed that activity pre-emption is not allowed. Problem is modeled in a portfolio of projects where precedence and resource constraints affect the portfolio duration. We also assume that the durations, availability of resources are deterministic and portfolio has a static nature. The objective in this article is to find a sta...
The overexpression of DNA repair genes in invasive ductal and lobular breast carcinomas: Insights on individual variations and precision medicine
Mohamed, Ruwaa; Bargal, Salma A.; Mekawy, Asmaa S.; El-Shiekh, Iman; Tunçbağ, Nurcan; Ahmed, Alaa S.; Badr, Eman; Elserafy, Menattallah (2021-03-01)
In the era of precision medicine, analyzing the transcriptomic profile of patients is essential to tailor the appropriate therapy. In this study, we explored transcriptional differences between two invasive breast cancer subtypes; infiltrating ductal carcinoma (IDC) and lobular carcinoma (LC) using RNA-Seq data deposited in the TCGA-BRCA project. We revealed 3854 differentially expressed genes between normal ductal tissues and IDC. In addition, IDC to LC comparison resulted in 663 differentially expressed g...
Occupational engagement scale-student: Psychometric properties in Turkish university students
Şensoy, Gözde; SİYEZ, DİĞDEM MÜGE; Kalen, Serhat (2021-04-01)
Young adults pursue a career path in the face of many barriers, such as financial worries and parental influences. Engaging in occupational behaviours enables them to know themselves and the world better, and also provides them with opportunities to have experiences that help them decide on a career. This study adapts the Occupational Engagement Scale-Student (OES-S) into Turkish and examines its psychometric properties in a university sample. Participants consisted of 304 university students (149 females a...

An Era of Non-Strategic Alliance: Turco-American Relations, 1927-1939
Memioğlu, Yasemin; Gürsel, Bahar; Department of Latin and North American Studies (2021-4)
Upon the rejection of the Treaty of Amity and Commerce signed between Turkey and the United States in Lausanne in 1923 by the U.S. Senate in 1927, President Calvin Coolidge initiated diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1927 through the exchange of notes. This thesis examines the Turkish - American relations between 1927 and 1939, and questions whether the U.S. Presidents Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a significant influence in the bilateral relations. It al...
STATEHOOD STRUGGLE WITHIN the CONTEXT of a PROTRACTED CONFLICT; POLITICAL ECONOMY of the TURKISH CYPRIOT CASE
Öner Tangör, Neyyire Nilgün; Yalman, Galip; Department of Area Studies (2021-4)
The Cyprus Problem was predominantly studied as a protracted conflict of clashing nationalisms and the TRNC-Turkey relation was depicted as a “dependency relation” that developed between a core and a periphery. This thesis suggests an alternative reading for both issues and analyses their relationship from a critical political economy perspective based on a realist epistemology by using the “dialectical method of inquiry”. It considers the Cyprus problem not only as an intercommunal conflict but more pertin...
THE RELEVANCE OF ECONOMIC INTEGRATION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE EUROPEAN UNION'S HUMAN RIGHTS APPROACH
Çelik, Çigdem; Alpan, Başak Zeynep; Department of European Studies (2021-4-15)
This thesis intends to understand whether the European Union (EU)’s economic integration has had an effect on the development of its human rights approach by exploring the relationship between economic integration and human rights in the EU. To answer the research question of the thesis (has the EU’s economic integration influenced the development of its human rights approach?) first, the historical evolution of human rights approach of the EU is outlined. Then, from comparative regionalism perspective, the...
QUALITATIVE EXAMINATION OF PATERNAL AND MATERNAL PARENTING CONTROL IN EARLY AND MIDDLE CHILDHOOD AMONG TURKISH PARENTS
Tümer, Bahar; Şahin Acar, Başak; Sümer, Nebi; Department of Psychology (2021-4-12)
Parental Psychological Control (PPC) is generally associated with adverse developmental outcomes in childhood and adolescence in Western cultures. However recent theories and studies suggest that these effects might differ across cultures since PPC may not be perceived as a negative parenting behavior collectivistic cultures. There is a need for an in-dept qualitative examination of PPC to better understand its cultural dynamics in Turkish cultural context. The current thesis aims to investigate the prevale...
Ultraviolet absorption and fluorescence measurements in turbulent spray flames
Allouis, Christophe Gerard; D'Alessio, A; Beretta, F; Borghese, A (2000-01-01)
Studies of elemental and organic carbon formation/oxidation in diffusion or rich premixed combustion systems focus mostly on soot particles and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. In recent years, a new class of carbon compounds, in the form of molecular clusters (nanoparticles) of organic composition has been inferred, detected and modeled within and at the exhausts of a variety of combustion systems. This new category of pollutants seems to be related to the formation processes of ultrafine particles found ...
