Undergraduate Students

Ceyda Yanmaz

2013 - Present Sabanci University (SU), Istanbul/TURKEY, Major: Material Science and Nano Engineering Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences (FENS), Senior

2013 Stafford House School of English, Summer School

2009 - 2013 Bilfen High School, İstanbul/TURKEY

2009-2001 Ata Elementary School

Research Projects:

Low Density, High Modulus Polypropylene Wood Composites Prepared by using Thermo Kinetic Mixer

Intention of the project is obtaining low density and high modulus polymers without losing its tensile modulus or even increase in mechanical properties. In order to decrease the density the inorganic material named talc in polymer is replaced with the low density organic fillers by using ultrahigh speed thermo kineticmixing method.
