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 ...
Alteration of protein localization and intracellular calcium content due to connexin26 D50A and A88V mutations
(Türk Biyokimya Derneği, 2017-04)
Introduction: Connexins (Cx) play essential roles in cellular homeostasis by forming gap junctions and non-junctional hemichannels. In vitro characterization of Cx26 mutations causing keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness (KID) ...
Convergence analysis and numerical solution of the Benjamin-Bona-Mahony equation by Lie-Trotter splitting
In this paper, an operator splitting method is used to analyze nonlinear Benjamin-Bona-Mahony-type equations. We split the equation into an unbounded linear part and a bounded nonlinear part and then Lie-Trotter splitting ...
Scale-model and simulation-based assessments for design alternatives of daylight redirecting systems for side-lighting in an educational design room
(Middle East Technical University, 2017)
Daylight has been proven to have positive effects on well-being, comfort and performance of occupants in buildings; it specifically increases learning performance in educational buildings. Side-lighting from one ...
Anticorrosion coating for magnesium alloys: Electrospun superhydrophobic polystyrene/SiO2 composite fibers
Superhydrophobic nanocomposite coatings for magnesium surfaces with remarkable corrosion resistance were fabricated by electrospinning in the presence of fluorosilane-functionalized silica (SiO2) nanoparticles. The effects ...
