    • Authors: Bilal Sungur; Bahattin Topaloglu
      Abstract: Domesticand industrial energy requirements since the beginning of industrial revolutionhave been largely met by fossil fuels. This leads to a continuous increase inthe Earth's atmosphere of carbon dioxide and other harmful components. Alsofossil energy resources decreasing day by day and scientists have turned to newresearch. In this context alternative energy sources have an important role toreduce dependence on fossil fuels. One of the alternative energy sources isbiomass and pellet fuel is one of them. In this study, combustioncharacteristics of pellet fuel in a model smoke tube boiler at differentloading conditions were investigated numerically. As a Computational FluidDynamic (CFD) program FLUENT package program was used. Calculations wereperformed at two dimensional conditions. According to various loadingconditions, temperature and stream function contours, velocity vectors, exhaustgas temperatures and efficiencies were investigated and results were discussed.

  • Changes in Quality Parameters of Deep Fat Fried Carrot Slices Under The
           Effect of Ultrasound Assisted Pre-Drying Process

    • Authors: Erkan Karacabey; Merve Seçil Turan
      Abstract: Oil absorption ispartially associated to the initial moisture content of frying material, thuscontrolling the moisture level could result in decreased oil absorption duringfrying with accompanying changes in other physical properties. As a result, inthe current study, in order to figure out the changes in moisture and oilcontents of fried carrot slices, the effects of process parameters ofultrasound assisted pre-drying was examined. Additionally texture and colorpreferences were studied. Any reduction in oil absorption was achieved byU/S-predrying, whereas it was observed that there was an increase in brightness(L*) value of carrot slices as well as generally a decrease in a* valuescompared to the control group. Effect of temperature was found to besignificant over a* and L* values for all power levels. Additionally, nostatistically significant change was observed for the textural properties withapplied ultrasound power levels.

  • Numerical Computation of Fission-Product Poisoning Build-up and Burn-up
           Rate in a Finite Cylindrical Nuclear Reactor Core

    • Authors: Mathew Ademola Jayeola; Musbaudeen Kewulere Fasasi, Adebimpe Amos Amosun, Ayodeji Olalekan Salau, Babatunde Michael Ojo
      Abstract: All fission products are classified as reactor poisons because they absorb neutrons to some extent, most of which buildup slowly as the fuel burns up and eventually constitutes a long term reactivity effect in the core. Amidst the numerous fission fragments produced per fission, the presence of Xenon-135 and Samarium-149 has the greatest effect on a reactor core multiplication factor because of their large absorption cross-sections. In this study, we present a modified one-group time independent neutron diffusion equation using the method of Eigen functions and also provided an algorithm to calculate the temperature variations of the neutron fluxes. The solution obtained from the diffusion equation was used to determine the initial thermal neutron flux needed for the reactor startup. The four basic fission-product poisoning buildup and burn-up rate equations were solved using direct integration method and constant flux approximation over a particular time interval. Furthermore, a computer algorithm called Java code for Fission-Product Poisioning Build-up and Burn-up (Jac-FPPB) code was designed to calculate the temperature variations of the neutron fluxes, fission -isotopes cross sections and the atom concentrations of the fission products over a given time interval. The result from Jac-FPPB code showed that the neutron fluxes and neutron energies increase as the temperature of the fuel increases. In addition, the computed atom concentrations of each fission isotopes at any given time interval showed that the isotopes increasingly build up steadily at the initial time interval and rises to a constant level where the buildup rate of the isotopes approximately equals its burn up rate. This study concluded that the designed algorithm (JaC-FPBB code) proved efficient as it could compute the build-up and burn-up rates for the two important fission fragments in a nuclear reactor core. The code is easily accessible and could serve as a tool for the development of nuclear energy in developing countries, especially Nigeria.

  • Sapwood Area Related to Tree Size, Tree Age, and Leaf Area Index in Cedrus

    • Authors: Aylin Güney
      Abstract: Sapwoodincludes the water conducting part of the stem which transports water andminerals from roots to leaves. Studies using sap flow gauges have to determinethe area of the sapwood in order to scale measured sap flow densities to thetree or stand level. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationshipbetween sapwood area at breast height and other tree parameters which are easyto measure of the montane Mediterranean conifer Cedrus libani, including a total number of 92 study trees ofdifferent size and age. The study was conducted at four different standssituated between 1000 and 2000 m altitude in the Elmalı Cedar Research Forestof Antalya, SW-Turkey. Sapwood area of the sample trees was determined byextracting two tree cores from opposite directions of the stem using anincrement borer and by visually assessing the wet part of the core. Parametersmeasured besides sapwood area were diameter at breast height, stem radiuswithout bark, sapwood depth, tree basal area, tree height, tree age, and projectedcrown area. Furthermore, at each stand, leaf area index (LAI) was determinedusing hemispherical photographs of the forest canopy. The most significantrelationship was found between stem radius without bark and sapwood area (R2:0.94) followed by tree basal area and sapwood area (R2: 0.90).Although it was the second best predictor, tree basal area should be used toestimate sapwood area when estimating stand transpiration since it can bemeasured faster and without giving damage to the tree. Mean sapwood area and meansite-specific LAI showed a significant positive correlation. The findings ofthis study can be used in ecophysiological studies when transpiration rates of C. libani are measured using sap flowgauges.

    • Authors: Esra Deniz Güner; Senem Tekin, Galip Seçkin
      Abstract: The GöksuDelta of Turkey is an alluvial delta with intense agricultural activity and hasgreat ecological and economic significance. Water samples were collectedmonthly from 24 wells in the study area, and 13 water quality parameters wereexamined. The objective of the study was also to determination the waterquality in wells of the Göksu Delta and assess levels of salinisation in theregion. Piper diagrams and the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) was used togenerate ionic ratios to evaluate water quality in the study area in anefficient  manner. Overall, thegroundwater examined has medium levels of salinity and low sodium content.  The ncrease in groundwater salinity andamounts of Na+ and Cl- are indicators of saltwaterintrusion. Rock dissolution and ion exchange were also found to play an activerole in the region. All of these factors affect the sustainability of thefreshwater aquifers and lower their quality for wildlife species.

  • A Study on the Classification of Woody Vegetation in Forest Ecology
           (Isparta- Yenişarbademli Case)

    • Authors: Esra Özge Kurt; Mehmet Güvenç Negiz
      Abstract: This studywas carried out to classify woody vegetation in Yenişarbademli forest areas. Thevegetation classification is important to biological diversity conservation andsustainability. In the study, 103 sample plots 20 x 20 m size were taken forinventory. In the study area, woody plant species and environmental factorswere recorded in the inventory. Cluster analysis and two way indicator speciesanalysis (TWINSPAN) were performed to distinguish vegetation groups in thestudy. While cluster analysis and two way indicator species analysis werecarried out, present/ absence values of plant species were used. Because theindicator species can not be determined by the clustering analysis,Interspecific correlation analysis is applied. Multi-response permutationprocedures (MRPP) analysis was applied to the analysis results to decide group distinctions.The results obtained from MRPP analysis showed that the best option wasprovided with TWINSPAN used five indicatory species. As a result of TWINSPANused five indicatory species, THYSAM, CIRARV, BERVUL, JUNOXY and EUPSPP specieswere identified as discriminating species. The first group represented 51 andthe second group represented 52 sample plots. Discriminating species weredetermined to be species located in high elevation of the study area. As aresult of the analysis, the species in the first group is positive indicatorswhile in the second group is negative indicators. As a result, elevation is themost important variable when discriminating species group and indicator speciesare identified.

  • Real-time Parental Voice Recognition System For Persons Having Impaired

    • Authors: Mete Yağanoğlu; Cemal Köse
      Abstract: Persons having impaired hearing do not live a comfortable life becausethey can’t hear sounds when they are asleep or alone at home. In this study, aparental voice recognition system was proposed for those people. Persons havingimpaired hearing are informed by vibration about which one of their parents isspeaking. By this means, the person having impaired hearing real timelyperceives who is calling or who is speaking to him. The wearable device that wedeveloped can real timely perceive parental voice very easily, and transmits itto person having impaired hearing, while he/she is asleep or at home. Awearable device has been developed for persons having impaired hearing to useeasily at home environment. Our device is placed on user’s back, and just a ring-sizedvibration motor is attached to the finger of person. Our device consists ofRaspberry Pi, usb sound card, microphone, power supply and vibration motor.First of all, the sound is received by a microphone, and sampling is made.According to the Nyquist Theorem, 44100 samples are made per second.Normalization during preprocessing phase, Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients(MFCC) during feature extraction stage, k nearest neighbor (knn) during theclassification phase were used. Statistical or Z-score normalization was usedin the pre-processing phase. By means of normalization of the data, it isensured that each parameter in the training input set contributes equally tothe prediction of the model. MFCC is one of the feature extraction methods thatare frequently used in voice recognition applications. MFCC represents theshort-time power spectrum of the audio signal, and models the manner ofperception of human ear. Knn is an educational learning algorithm, and its aimis to classify the existing learning data when a new sampling arrives. Thesound data received via microphone were estimated through preprocessing,feature extraction and classification stages, and the person having impairedhearing was informed through real time vibrations about to whom this voicebelongs. This study was tested on 2 deaf, 3 normal hearing persons. The ears ofnormal hearing persons were covered with a earphone that gives out loud noise.Persons having impaired hearing estimated their mothers’ voice by 76%, andfathers’ voice by 81% accuracy in real-time tests. The success rate decreasesdue to the noise of environment especially while watching tv.  In the tests performed while these personsare asleep, a person having impaired hearing perceives his/her mother’s voice by78%, and   father’s voice by 83%accuracy. In this study it was aimed for persons having impaired hearing toperceive their parents’ voice and accordingly have a more prosperous standardof living.

    • Authors: Ahmet Mert; Ahmet Acarer
      Abstract: Thisstudy was carried out to reveal the relation between species diversitycalculated by species number data of some mammals and reed beds in northwest ofBeyşehir Lake. The study area, which is approximately 1875 ha, is divided intoa total of 75 grids measuring 500 x 500 m size. Sign, faeces and tracks of wildmammals were recorded for each grid in the spring and autumn of 2016.Indications of nine wild mammal were detected in 172 points in spring and 290points in autumn (Jungle cat, Lynx, Wolf, Fox, Coyote, Wild boar, Wild hare,Badger and Beech marten).The Shannon-Wiener diversity index was calculated foreach grid using the species number data obtained for spring and autumn.According to the Shannon-Wiener diversity index calculation results, themapping process was performed by inputting the calculated value of the grid.The total of the data from two period is used in the Shannon-Wiener diversitymap of the all area. Shannon-Wiener diversity of all mammals was obtained asHT:1,581. When compared to the seasons, this value was calculated as Hİ=1,418in spring and HS=1,56 in autumn
