The effect of cooling on mechanical and thermal stresses in vascular structures
(Yıldız Technical University, 2018-02)
Here, we show how the vascular channel configuration and its shape affect the mechanical strength which is simultaneously subjected to heating and mechanical load. The material properties were defined as functions of ...
Photocatalytic antimicrobial effect of TiO2 anatase thin-film–coated orthodontic arch wires on 3 oral pathogens
The aim of this study was to introduce antimicrobial activity to stainless steel orthodontic arch wires by coating them with TiO2 in anatase form. Stainless steel (0.016 × 0.022 inch), D-rect (0.016 × 0.022 inch), and ...
Morphological and molecular identification of pennate diatoms isolated from Urla, İzmir, coast of the Aegean Sea
Diatoms represent an important class of aquatic phototrophs. They are not only one of the major contributors to global carbon fixation, but also play a key role in the biogeochemical cycling of silica. Molecular ...
Analytical dynamic analysis of a kinesthetic haptic device
(Dokuz Eylul University-Faculty of Engineering, 2018-05)
A hybrid-structured kinesthetic haptic device based on an R-CUBE mechanism and a serial spherical wrist mechanism is considered in this article. This device is designed to simulate point-type contacts on the user. Hence, ...
The importance of internal heat gains for building cooling design
(Yıldız Technical University, 2017-01)
This paper aims to investigate the effect of internal heat gains on the cooling load of a building. The house occupied by three adult men is selected as the case study for paper. The house is in the third floor of the ...
Vascular structures for smart features: Self-cooling and self-healing
(Yıldız Technical University, 2017-08)
Here we show how smart features of self-cooling and self-healing can be gained to mechanical systems with embedded vascular structures. Vascular structures mimic the circulatory system of animals. Similar to blood distribution ...
