TÜBİTAK Portugal and Korea Bilateral Cooperation Program Support

Sabancı University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences members Yasemin Şengül Tezel and Ali Koşar won support for their projects within the TÜBİTAK Portugal and Korea Bilateral Cooperation Program. 

Sabancı University FENS Faculty Member Yasemin Şengül Tezel’s project titled “Dynamical models in solid mechanics allowing for discontinuities of 1-Laplacian type with applications in imaging" won support as part of the TÜBİTAK - Portugal Science and Technology Foundation (FCT) Bilateral Cooperation Program (2546), while Sabancı University FENS Faculty Member Ali Koşar’s project titled “Kaynama Isı Transferini İyileştirmesi İçin Manyetik Nanoakışkanlarda Kontrollü Habbecik Dinamiği Üzerine Türkiye - Kore Uluslararası İşbirliği" won support within the TÜBİTAK - Korea National Research Foundation (NRF) Bilateral Cooperation Program (2523).

 

TÜBİTAK Portugal Bilateral Cooperation Program

The TÜBİTAK Portugal Bilateral Cooperation Program-supported project Dynamical models in solid mechanics allowing for discontinuities of 1-Laplacian type with applications in imaging” will be implemented by Sabancı University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences member Yasemin Şengül Tezel, and by University of Coimbra Professor of Mathematics Dmitry Vorotnikov in Portugal. Speaking about the project, Yasemin Şengül Tezel said that their efforts focused on proving the existence of soltions to dynamical models in solid mechanics allowing for discontinuities of 1-Laplacian type. Tezel said that while such models were frequently used in areas like imaging, the mathematical analysis of the equations forming the model were difficult to perform due to their non-linear nature. Yasemin Şengül Tezel remarked, “We expect to prove the existence of certain special solutions to equations in a physically-realistic problem using the latest techniques in variation calculations and nonlinear system conservation laws.”

 

 Turkey - Korea Bilateral Cooperation Program

Sabancı University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences faculty member Burç Mısırlıoğlu is the advisor of the project titled “Kaynama Isı Transferini İyileştirmesi İçin Manyetik Nanoakışkanlarda Kontrollü Habbecik Dinamiği Üzerine Türkiye - Kore Uluslararası İşbirliği" conducted within the Turkey - Korea Bilateral Cooperation Program. The implementers of the project are Sabancı University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences faculty member Ali Koşar in Turkey, and Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) professor Hyun Sun Park in Korea. Speaking about project details, Ali Koşar said that the main motive behind the project was to start a Turkish-Korean partnership on fusion heat transfer. The objective of the project is to make a new technical hypothesis on the manipulation of nanoparticle dynamics using magnetic nanoparticles and magnetic nanofluids to improve fusion heat transfer performance. Ali Koşar said “This will enable savings in time and cost, while heat transfer will become more effective. Successful control of nanoparticles may have contributions to areas such as chip cooling, micro reactors, climate control and cooling systems, and thermophotovoltaic systems. This project may lead to larger projects and wide-scale joint research initiatives."
