    • Design and Analysis of a Lightweight Disc-Type Magnetorheological Device 

      Topcu, Okan; Taşcıoğlu, Yiğit; Konukseven, Erhan I. (Int Assoc Engineers-Iaeng, 2015)
      The focus of this paper is the weight reduction of a disc-type magnetorheological (MR) device. Two different designs are proposed and investigated via finite-element analysis (FEA) to achieve the optimum combination of ...
    • Design Of A Flow Diverter Mechanism And A Nozzle For A Hydro Turbine Experimental Test Rig 

      Cetinturk, Huseyin; Aytac, Fatma Zeynep; Taşcıoğlu, Yiğit; Celebioglu, Kutay; Aradağ, Selin (Amer Soc Mechanical Engineers, 2014)
      Hydro turbines used in hydroelectric power plants need to be designed and tested according to the specifications of the specific power plant, mainly the head and flow rate. Their models also need to be tested according to ...
    • Dynamic Modeling of a Multiple Launch Rocket System 

      Sert, Serdar; Taşcıoğlu, Yiğit (Int Assoc Engineers-Iaeng, 2015)
      Multiple Rocket Launcher Systems (MLRS) are used to aim rockets to the desired elevation (pitch) and azimuth (yaw) angles in order to hit targets. In this paper, a dynamic model for an MLRS with electromechanical actuators ...
    • Electro-Mechanical Control Loading System For Rotary Wing Aircraft Simulators 

      Aygun, Mehmet Murat; Taşcıoğlu, Yiğit; Genc, Gursoy; Altunay, Mustafa (Amer Soc Mechanical Engineers, 2014)
      The focus of this paper is on the development of a high-fidelity electro-mechanical Control Loading System (CLS) for a rotary wing aircraft simulator. CLS is one of the major components of a flight simulator. It is used ...
    • Experimental Determination of Cavitation Characteristics of Hydraulic Turbines 

      Demirel, Gizem; Ayli, Ece; Celebioglu, Kutay; Taşcıoğlu, Yiğit; Aradağ, Selin (Int Assoc Engineers-Iaeng, 2015)
      A new facility for the design, manufacturing and standardized tests of model hydraulic turbines is under construction at TOBB University of Economics and Technology. The facility is one of a few of its kind, in the sense ...
    • Model Testing of Francis-Type Hydraulic Turbines 

      Kavurmaci, Berat; Celebioglu, Kutay; Aradağ, Selin; Taşcıoğlu, Yiğit (Sage Publications Ltd, 2017-04)
      Every single turbine is custom-designed specifically to meet the requirements of a hydroelectric power plant. Performance of a designed turbine is validated, to some extent, by computational fluid dynamics simulations; ...
    • A Novel Rotary Magneto-Rheological Damper For Haptic Interfaces 

      Topcu, Okan; Taşcıoğlu, Yiğit; Konukseven, Erhan Ilhan (Amer Soc Mechanical Engineers, 2016)
      Haptic interfaces require lightweight, small actuators with high force capability and low friction. In this paper, based on the structure of conventional shear mode disc and drum type MR fluid dampers, a lightweight ...
    • Numerical research of cavitation on Francis turbine runners 

      Celebioglu, Kutay; Altintas, Burak; Aradağ, Selin; Taşcıoğlu, Yiğit (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2017-07-13)
      Francis turbines, as other hydraulic turbines, are custom-designed for nominal operating conditions specific to each power plant. However, they may need to be operated at off design flow conditions because of variable ...
