An Efficient Analytical Method for Vibration Analysis of a Beam on Elastic Foundation with Elastically Restrained Ends
Mustafa ?zgür Yayli,Murat Aras,Süleyman Aksoy
Shock and Vibration , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/159213
Abstract: An efficient analytical method for vibration analysis of a Euler-Bernoulli beam on elastic foundation with elastically restrained ends has been reported. A Fourier sine series with Stoke’s transformation is used to obtain the vibration response. The general frequency determinant is developed on the basis of the analytical solution of the governing differential equation for all potential solution cases with rigid or restrained boundary conditions. Numerical analyses are performed to investigate the effects of various parameters, such as the springs at the boundaries to examine how the elastic foundation parameters affect the vibration frequencies. 1. Introduction Beams resting on elastic foundations have wide application in engineering practice. The vibration analysis of beams is investigated using various elastic foundation models, such as, Vlasov, Pasternak, and Winkler models. A number of studies have been performed to predict the dynamic response of beams on elastic foundations with different boundary conditions. Numerous works have been performed to explore the static deflection and vibration response of the beams resting on various elastic foundations. Chun [1] has investigated free vibration of hinged beam. Maurizi et al. [2] have considered the vibration frequencies for a beam with different boundary conditions. Vibration of beams on partial elastic foundations has been studied by Doyle and Pavlovic [3]. Laura et al. [4] have investigated beams which carry concentrated masses subject to an axial force. Abbas [5] has investigated vibration of Timoshenko beams with elastically restrained ends. Free vibration and stability behavior of uniform beams and columns with nonlinear elastic end rotational restraints has been considered by Rao and Naidu [6]. Free vibration behaviour of an Euler-Bernoulli beam resting on a variable Winkler foundation has been considered by Kacar et al. [7]. Civalek [8] has implemented differential quadrature and harmonic differential quadrature methods for buckling analysis of thin isotropic plates and elastic columns. H. K. Kim and M. S. Kim [9] have considered vibration of beams with generally restrained boundary conditions. A number of studies have been reported investigating the free vibration of beams on elastic foundation [10–25]. Although vibration analysis of beams on elastic foundation is a widely studied topic, there are only few papers that exist in the literature pertaining to the analysis of beams with elastically restrained ends. In this study, an efficient method is introduced for the analysis of the free

Case Reports in Urology , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/932529
Abstract: Seventy percent of ureteral stones are located at distal ureter. Effective and safe passage of distal ureter stones is mediated by observation or medical expulsive treatment. Most of stones located at distal ureter pass spontaneously under observation; however, some are complicated with urinary tract infection, hydronephrosis, and renal function disturbances. Spontaneous perforation of the upper ureter is a rare condition that poses diagnostic and therapeutic problems. This case is reported, because the patient developed an unexpected spontaneous renal pelvis rupture (SRPR), while she was under observation and expected to pass her right ureteral stone spontaneously through hydration and analgesic treatment. 1. Introduction Ureteral stones are 20% of urinary tract stones. Seventy percent of ureteral stones are located at distal ureter. Effective and safe passage of distal ureter stones is mediated by observation or medical expulsive treatment [1]. Most of stones located at distal ureter pass spontaneously under observation; however, some are complicated with urinary tract infection, hydronephrosis, and renal function disturbances. Urine extravasation from the renal collecting system or renal pelvis is a rare condition. When urine extravasation happens, it is generally related to obstruction, trauma, or previous urinary tract surgery [2]. This case is reported, because the patient developed an unexpected spontaneous renal pelvis rupture (SRPR), while she was under observation and expected to pass her right ureteral stone spontaneously through hydration and analgesic treatment. 2. Case Report A 52-year-old woman has been admitted to the emergency department with acute flank pain for the last 6 days. Four days ago, the patient was followed in another clinic with observation option for spontaneous passage of distal ureteral stone. Hydration and twice daily diclofenac sodium 50?mg orally were recommended to the patient. The patient has been admitted to our emergency urology clinic with increased pain in the last 8 hours, increased nausea, and vomiting; no pathology was present in her medical history. Physical examination revealed diffuse pain in the right abdomen with tenderness. Tenderness in costovertebral angle with local coolness in skin was present. In urinary ultrasonography, hydronephrosis and abundant fluid collection in perinephric area were seen. The left kidney was normal. In abdominal computerised tomography, rupture of renal pelvis in two points, peripheral fluid accumulation, contrast extravasation, and a 6?mm stone in right distal ureter were

The purpose of this study is to identify pedagogical formation students’ (teacher candidates’) communication skills based on their perceptions. The study sought answers to the following research question: What are the perceptions of pedagogical formation students (teacher candidates) related to their communication skills? Assessment of pedagogical formation students’ (teacher candidates’) perceptions regarding their communication skills was undertaken through qualitative research methods. Qualitative data collected with the help of semi-structured interview form were analyzed in terms of content. The study was conducted with the participation of 48 teacher candidates attending pedagogical formation classes at Düzce University during 2013-2014 academic year. According to the data obtained at the end of the study, teacher candidates are aware of the necessity and importance of communication. They are aware that the prerequisite for being contented, successful and social individuals and professionals is healthy and good communication with others. Teacher candidates know the importance and necessity of body language in effective communication and generally prefer to use it. They are also aware of the need for written and oral communication when required. Psychological situations such as anxiety, stress, lack of self-efficacy, timidity, fear and excitement are regarded as barriers that inhibit communication. These barriers are followed by being misunderstood, lack of feedback and language, culture, prior information and prejudices related to inappropriate context/environment and persons involved in communication. Teacher candidates express that they can develop communication skills by participating in social activities. They also state that they can develop communication skills by reading books/articles/research findings, participating in courses/seminars/conferences, meeting new and different people and taking training-expert support.

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2017.53008
Abstract: Children make a rapid development physically, cognitively and affectively in preschool educational period (age 0 - 6). The cognitive dimension of a child at pre-school age is creative, independent and imaginary. The imagination unceasingly works. This period is regarded as the time that the children have high potential of learning and developing. Thus, the quality of preschool education affects the higher educational success and even the lifelong success of the child. Therefore the aims of the research are to emphasize the importance of preschool education on the development of the child, to make a comparison between the preschool education of Turkey and other developed countries and to support preschool education by explaining why and how the preschool education in Turkey should be improved. In this research, case study method from data collection methods was used; related written and electronic resources were collected, analyzed and interpreted in line with the research purpose. The following suggestions are developed in order to improve the preschool education in Turkey: Service delivery models that increase the participation to preschool education should be varied; the preschool educational facilities should be extended supporting the access of regions with limited financial means and regulations that decreasing the educational costs of families should be adopted. For all children, especially for families with low income, preschool educational institutions should be free like in more than half of European Union countries or preschool educational costs should be arranged in accordance with family incomes and other criterion, and families should be supported. The improvement and development priority should be given to preschool educational stage, accordingly physical resources (building, materials, substructure) and human resources (manager, educator, deputy manager and support staff) should be provided. Besides preschool teaching departments should be opened in faculties of education in universities and the quota of preschool teaching departments should be increased.

The aim of the study is to determine the perception of workload of primary and secondary school teachers in Turkey in accordance with teachers’ opinion. The research data were collected using phenomenological pattern which is one of qualitative research methods, and analysis of documents was made. The research was made on 72 Primary and Secondary school teachers who have at least three years seniority working in 24 schools subordinate of Directorate of Istanbul Provincial Education. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews. The analysis of the resulting data was conducted by inductive content analysis. In the study, teachers generally state that security duties of teachers should be transferred to the security companies, and teachers should not interfere to the duty of collecting money from students in no way under any intentions. Again, according to the findings of the research, the most fatiguing, puzzling and time consuming issues as for teachers should be reduced which are, documents and correspondences, student tracking and control, disciplinary procedures, administrative meetings, collection of dues, ceremonies and celebrations, home visits and development of material as well. Questions of survey related to special education and guidance and counseling services should be asked by experts of this section and related ones since the related questions include very special subjects for children; as for data entries, they must be done by the school officers. The results are significant due to the fact that they offer a sight for the stakeholders about the works stated in teachers’ job description and the perception of the teachers themselves related to their workload.

Abstract: The aim of this study is to determine the factors motivating the weight lifters participating in a weight-lifting championship and their organizational motivation level. Survey method was used in the study and the data were obtained from the weight lifters participating in Inter-club weight lifting champion. The obtained data were analyzed through SPSS 10.0 program package. The study findings revealed that though the frequencies of the motivational factors vary, aggregation is on the option “I agree”. According to gender variable, significant differences were found for the items 4, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 14. For the weight lifters, spiritual incentives are as important as material incentives. Appreciation of their efforts, effective communication among the weight lifters, coaches, club managers, good friendships result in high motivation. On the other hand, biased attitudes of the managers, unjust waging practices, lack of facilities and equipment negatively affect the motivation.
Erken D nem Osmanl Tarihi “Kara Bir Delik / A Black Hole” Mi?” Osmanl Devletinin Kurulu u “Gazi/Gaza” deolojisi le lgili Tart malar/// Is the Early Ottoman History “A Black Hole?”: Discussions About The Foundation of the Ottoman Empire and Gazi/Gaza Concepts

History Studies : International Journal of History , 2013,
Abstract: Since the beginning of the 20th century, conflicting arguments have been made about the origins, development and characteristics of the Ottoman Empire, which started as a small border country. In his “Foundation of Ottoman Empire”, published in 1916, Herbert Adams Gibbs claims that the state is built by mixed nation of people from Turkish pagan and Greek Christian roots. According to Gibbons, roots of the Ottoman Empire should be searched referring to the European elements rather than Asian Turkish ones. In 1935, M. Fuat K prülü contradicted Gibbons by claiming that Ottoman Empire mainly belongs to Turkish and Muslim elements. In 1937, Paul Wittek rejects K prülü’s claim about Ottomans’ connection to Oguz Kay tribe. Wittek argues that the foundations of the empire would not base on a tribe. According to him, this foundation bases on the concept of Gaza, or the holy war against the neighboring Christian world. M. Fuat K prülü’s opinions are supported and extended further by Halil nalc k’s new claims. Among several other factors, nalc k always considers gaza factor as a historical fact and stresses that jihad or gaza continues to be the leading dynamic of the ottomans till the end of the 17thcentury. He expresses this idea by saying; “Gaza is the leading factor for the progress of Ottomans in Asia and Europe.”Turkologist like Ronald C. Jenings, Colin mber, Hungarian Turkologist Gyula Kaldy-Nagy, inasi Tekin, Colin Heywood and Heath Lowry reject the gaza thesis. English Historian Colin Imber takes the discussions about the subject one step further and calls the ottoman history until the last quarter of the 15th century as “a black hole.” Using new claims by modern Turkish historians such as Feridun M. Emecen and Mehmet z, this study will try to evaluate these approaches to the Ottoman history that name the period from the foundation to the early empire as “a dark period.”
Armenians in The Bureaucracy of Ottoman Egypt: The Carier of Bogos Nubar Pasha (1824-1899)///Osmanl M s r’ Bürokrasisinde Ermeniler: Bogos Nubar Pa a’n n Kariyeri (1824-1899)
History Studies : International Journal of History , 2010,
Abstract: The carier of Nubar Pasha and some members of his family in the bureaucracy of Egypt is important in three ways: Firstly, the Armenians had many rights and freedoms in the borders of the Ottoman Empire as one of the nations composing the state. These rights must not only be seen as written texts. As other subjects composing the state, these rights have been used by the Armenians without preventions. Secondly, not only in the central organization of the Ottoman Empire but also in the Provinces bounded to the central authority like Egypt they reached important positions. Thirdly, although Nubar Pasha was not born in the Ottoman territory and immigrated from Karabakh, without facing any prejudices and limitations he reached many important positions in the hierarchy of the State. The basic aim of this article is to see the roles and contributions of the Armenians who are one of the nations that constitute the state to the new policies in Egypt during their modernity efforts. We will also mention the fields they worked, the charity institutions like waqfs and schools the Armenians founded who settled to Egypt with the incitements of Muhammad Ali Pasha. The other goal of this study is to evaluate the problem of the non-Muslim citizens lived in the environment of political crisis of the Ottomans that is called dispersion of loyalty by the case of Nubar Pasha.
