    • Authors: Can BIYIK
      Abstract: Computer system frameworks are more modern, similar to vehicles, taking into account that they have PC sensors and are committed to a piece of the vehicle's activity. There is a framework that is cooperative to guarantee an answer that may redesign the security in rush hour gridlock. Correspondences in vehicles are a crisis of the IT innovation that incorporates the vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to framework, vehicle to person on foot correspondence, and the vehicle to everything. Regularly, these vehicles' clients have a hefty dependence on the seat straps and airbags to defend them from any dangers during a mishap. They are like a security net that would defend the gymnastic performers in a bazaar show. The advanced methodology goes past the security nets methodologically, and we ought to battle that the vehicular correspondence networks are not there yet. On the off chance that they are probably going to be available, no trial capacity ought to be finished. There is a conviction of conceivable value of the savvy vehicle coordination that could be higher. The exhibition gauge might be secure further assessment. The innovative work and mechanical consolidation of vehicular correspondence advancements will guarantee a coordinated car innovation. The mix of vehicles' data benefits, their security, and their financial presentation will add to a wise metropolitan transportation structure.

  • Phase Change Material (PCM) Effect on Photovoltaic Performance of Solar

    • Authors: Mena ALİ; İbrahim KOÇ
      Abstract: Photovoltaic (PV) cells energy production limitation leads to make its important to operate those panels in the best operating conditions. In addition, sunlight is lower and cell temperature is higher, all of which are variables that adversely affect power generation. The potential reduction of cell temperature by one of the alternative thermal control techniques, phase change material (PCM) installation is discussed in this article. Three types of PCM (RT15, RT35, and SP25E2) are used together in the proposed system to overcome wide temperature range, in such method to reduce the PV panel temperature. The proposed scheme is simulated using MATLAB. Simulation results shows that the effect of high temperature PCM is the overall effect. If the temperature is smaller than the PCM melting point, the use of PCM is disadvantage. This disadvantage is that the temperature of the panel increases more than the ambient temperature.

  • Combination of Fuzzy C-Means and Thresholding for Breast Tumor
           Segmentation Using Medical Images

    • Authors: Barish İZADDİN; Ayça KURNAZ TÜRKBEN
      Abstract: Breast tumor segmentation is a crucial stage in breast cancer therapy and follow-up. Radiologists can minimize the high workload of breast cancer analysis by automating this difficult process. After pre-processing source pictures, this article established a system for accurately segmenting breast tumors and non-infected areas (breast) on medical imaging using combination of Fuzzy c-Means and Thresholding (FCMT). This is a computer-aided diagnostic method that works on each individual breast slice without any training for segmentation. On a database of 79 images of Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). To increase the image quality, we used pre-processing techniques such as contrast augmentation before applying the FCMT for segmentation. To assess the effectiveness of the devised approach, the Mean Square Error, dice coefficient, Structured Similarity Index, Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio, accuracy, and sensitivity were computed. On the same dataset, we compared our technique to different segmentation methods. With a dice coefficient of 0.9568 and an accuracy of 0.9731, our approach surpassed the other substantially. The suggested approach is more resilient and accurate in segmenting tumor progression on medical pictures, according to the findings of the experiments.

  • Regenerative Design in Nature Conservation

    • Authors: Huriye Hande HARMANKAYA; Leyla TOKMAN
      Abstract: Nature has always been a source of knowledge and inspiration by attracting people's attention. A suitable solution can be found for the relationship between built environment and nature with the design principles created by using the existing principles found in nature. For this, it should be realized that the human-nature relationship should provide mutual benefit and progress by supporting each other. In the research, regenerative design, one of the nature-based design approaches, that is based on the fact that human beings are a part of environmental systems and any change in these environmental systems will also affect humans, is discussed. In this approach, it is not only aimed to protect existing environmental systems, but also aimed to advance and improve these systems. Regenerative design, which aims to contribute to the environment by improving environmental damage, has an important potential to improve environmental systems and human health.

  • Evaluation of the University Campuses in Walled Cities: Nicosia Case

    • Authors: Abdullah CAN; Cemil ATAKARA
      Abstract: The texture in historical cities is one of the important urban memory elements that should be preserved and passed down from generation to generation. Buildings, public spaces in this texture sometimes differ in form and function; therefore, the user base may change. The important thing is to preserve the historical city and its surroundings. In terms of continuity of history and the ability to read the past through the city is possible by respecting the original. Within the scope of this study, the effects of the Rauf Denktaş University in Nicosia walled city, on the historical texture and the region were investigated and the effects of the extension of the street where the university is located for the continuity of the future were mentioned. In order to protect historical cities and ensure the continuity of cultural and architectural heritage in these cities in the most accurate way, the changes and transformations they have undergone over time are examined through the building converted into a university, and the problem of form-content change in historical buildings and in the historical environment has been addressed. In line with the findings obtained from this study, it is aimed to seek solutions in order to continue the transfer of the continuity of the region and urban memory to future generations.

  • Thermal Performance Improvement of Shell and Helical Coil Heat Exchanger

    • Authors: Tareq ABED; İbrahim KOÇ
      Abstract: Nowadays, energy consumption increases so it is necessary to enhance the efficiency and performance of heat energy transition. The effects of perforated twisted tape on heat transfer coefficient, effectiveness, Nusselt number, and pressure drop are studied numerically. Modeling of heat exchanger with the perforated twisted tape is applied where finite volume method is utilized to perform the setup and complete the solution. The numerical results are validated with previous experimental results and there is an excessive agreement between the numerical and experimental results. The range of Reynolds numbers is from 3800 to 18000. The results showed that the overall heat transfer coefficient U increases with the rise of Reynolds number where the perforated twisted tape achieves the maximum enhancement of heat transfer coefficient achieving the numbers from 965 to 1250 W/m2K. The perforated twisted tape has the highest ratio of enhancing Nusselt number following the numbers from 65 to 115 and this can be explained as the velocity rises, the turbulence level increases. Heat exchanger effectiveness increases with the growth of Reynolds number where the perforated twisted tape attained the supreme enhancement of effectiveness reaching the numbers from 0.35 to 0.85. It is indicated that the twisted tape configuration has the maximum ratio of pressure drop increase as the complicity of twisted tape rise the pressure drop. Contours and streamlines of hot and cold water cross the heat exchanger explains the distributions of temperature, velocity, and pressure.
