Optimizing Single-Span Steel Truss Bridges with Simulated Annealing
Hasançebi, Oğuzhan (2010-11-01)
This study presents applications of a simulated annealing integrated solution algorithm to the optimum design of single-span steel truss bridges subjected to gravity loadings. In the optimum design process of a bridge the members are sized simultaneously as the coordinates of the upper chord nodes are determined such that the least design weight is attained for the structure. The design constraints and limitations are imposed in accordance with serviceability and strength provisions of ASD-AISC (Allowable S...
Optimizing the Heat Treatment Parameters of Additively Manufactured IN718 Components
Kaleli, Tuğçe; Yağmur, Aydın; Tirkeş, Süha; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2021-9-01)
Ni-based superalloys have gained importance in aerospace and energy industries due to their excellent mechanical properties at elevated temperatures. Conventional manufacturing methods such as casting and forging create defects having adverse effects on the service performance. Moreover, microstructures of cast and wrought products contain brittle phases, which negatively affect the machinability. In recent years, additive manufacturing techniques have been developed for production of Ni-based super...
Optimizing transient and filtering performance of a C-type 2nd harmonic power filter by the use of solid-state switches
Gerçek, Cem Özgür; Ertaş, Arif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this research work, the performance of a C-type, 2nd harmonic power filter is optimized by the use of a thyristor switched damping resistor. In the design of conventional C-type, 2nd harmonic filters; the resistance of permanently connected damping resistor is to be optimized for minimization of voltage stresses on filter elements arising from switchings in transient state and for maximization of filtering effectiveness in the steady-state. Transformer inrush current during energization of power transfor...

Optimizing pump schedule and valve characteristics of water distribution networks
Gençoğlu, Gençer; Merzi, Nuri; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
From design stage to operation, water distribution networks hold the vital part of the infrastructure systems. Pumps contain significant operational consumptions by pumping and maintenance costs. Wise scheduling is an important tool that may decrease these costs. Leakage, defined as a portion of treated and pumped water; and through a typical water distribution network, it may possess a large percentage of the total water supplied. Pressure heads within the water distribution network are one of the major ca...
