    EVOLUTION OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CENTER FOR REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT: CASE STUDY OF MAKU R&D CENTER

    Innovations in Discrete Productions, Vol. 6 (2018), Issue 3, pg(s) 95-97

    The role of universities in R&D activities is a subject which needs to be reevaluated and thought over in terms of their contribution to the related industries, their vicinities and research parks. The mere reason of the existence of universities is to push the boundaries of the existing knowledge to achieve better and more reliable results in any given field. Although the ideal is having universities which are able to adapt really quickly to changes, often the reality is not so. The change is mostly slow and not swift enough to keep up with the recent developments in many fields such as the economic changes. These changes in the manner of universities require long periods of time. This is one of the reasons why universities should be quick to respond to regional needs and shifts to help pursue more attainable and resilient ecosystems. The main objective of this article is to analyze the role of research and development unit Mehmet Akif Ersoy University R&D services. It aims to support co-evolution of local municipal and industrial enterprises to increase the competitiveness of the region.

  • EFFECT OF ALLOYING ELEMENTS ON THE MICROSTRUCTURE AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF NiAl-Cr(Mo) EUTECTIC ALLOY

    Materials Science. Non-Equilibrium Phase Transformations., Vol. 1 (2015), Issue 2, pg(s) 25-29

    Microstructure and mechanical properties of NiAl-Cr(Mo) eutectic alloy and the effect of 0.1Fe,1Nb,4Ti additions are investigated at room temperature (RT) and high temperature (1000°C). The alloys are prepared by arc melting method and then homogenized at 1300°C in Ar atmosphere for 24 h. In addition to the room temperature and high temperature compression tests and X-ray diffraction measurements, hardness measurements and microscopic analyses at room temperature are performed. NiAl-Cr(Mo) alloy exhibit fine cellular eutectic structure with coarse eutectic at interdendiric regions. However, the Nb and Ti addition reduced the formation of eutectic structure. Cr2Nb-type Laves and Ni2AlTi-type Heusler phases are observed in the XRD patterns of the Nb and Ti containing alloys respectively. Addition of Fe does not have important effect on the room and high temperature yield strength of the alloy, while the Nb and Ti increase the yield strength of the alloys at both temperatures.

  • DOMINANT TECHNOLOGIES IN “INDUSTRY 4.0”

    IMPROVING THE EFFICIENCY OF THE FLAT PLATE SOLAR COLLECTOR SYSTEM WITH A NEW DESIGN

    Industry 4.0, Vol. 2 (2017), Issue 2, pg(s) 73-75

    Solar collectors are one of the most promising renewable technologies for energizing future systems. Solar collectors are used for a variety of heating systems such as domestic hot water systems and industrial application. Increasing the collector efficiency is an important factor in terms of unit cost. In this study is to increase efficiencies of flat plate solar collectors. For this purpose, various apparatus was place into collector tubes which increase the heat transfer between plate and fluid, thus it developed a new collector. In addition, a new collector hot water tank was designed. The changes in warehouse and collector were compared with the classical systems and the change in the usage water was calculated.
