A novel planar scissor structure transforming between concave and convex configurations
(WIT Press, 2017-06)
In this paper, a novel two-dimensional scissor structure that transforms between concave and convex configurations is presented. The structure is designed by a method of assembling kite or anti-kite loops in the flat ...
Structural analyses and assessment of historical Kamanlı Mosque in Izmir, Turkey
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2010-07)
Historical structures are one of the most precious pieces of cultural accumulation. In this study, an interdisciplinary work was conducted to assess the structural condition of a historical masonry structure, Urla Kamanl ...
The influence of low energy impacts on the static and dynamic response of a foam core composite wing
(SAGE Publications, 2009-07)
This work describes damage detection efforts on a composite wing subject to a series of low-energy (ĝ̂1/47 J) impacts. Two airfoils with fundamentally different damage scenarios were considered. The first damage scenario ...
Estimation of mechanical properties of limestone using regression analyses and ANN
(Fundacja Cement Wapno Beton, 2012)
Estimation of mechanical properties of rocks is important for researchers and field engineers working in cement and concrete industry. Limestone is used in cement production. In this study, Schmidt hammer, ultrasonic pulse ...
Enhancement of interlaminar fracture toughness of carbon fiber–epoxy composites using polyamide-6,6 electrospun nanofibers
In this study, carbon fiber–epoxy composites are interleaved with electrospun polyamide-6,6 (PA 66) nanofibers to improve their Mode-I fracture toughness. These nanofibers are directly deposited onto carbon fabrics before ...
Modification of carbon fibre/epoxy composites by polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) based electrospun nanofibres
(Adcotec Ltd., 2016)
In this study, the effects of modifying interlaminar region of unidirectional carbon fibre/epoxy composites by the incorporation of electrospun polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) nanofibres were investigated. PVA nanofibres were ...
