An interactive sorting approach based on information theoretic measure
Özarslan, Ali; Karakaya, Gülşah (null; 2019-06-16)
In this study, we develop an interactive approach for sorting alternatives. We assume that the preferences of the decision maker are consistent with an additive function. We assign worst and best possible categories for each alternative and narrow down these category ranges using mixed integer programming (MIP) iteratively. We utilize binary variables to assign the alternatives for which the classes are not known exactly. We incorporate the worst and best possible category information to the MIPs whenever n...
An iterative hydraulic design methodology based on numerical modeling for piano key weirs
Köken, Mete; Aydın, İsmail; Ademoglu, Serhan (2022-01-01)
Piano Key Weir (PKW) is a special type of overflow weir which provides an improved discharge capacity with its increased crest length. Increased discharge capacity makes this weir an attractive alternative in the rehabilitation of existing spillways. After the introduction of this new weir type, many experimental and numerical studies are conducted to understand the effect of the numerous geometrical parameters on the discharge capacity. However, empirical discharge formulas suggested by different researche...
An architectural modeling approach with symmetric alignment of multiple concern spaces
Cetin, Semih; Altintas, N. Ilker; Şener, Cevat (2006-12-01)
Architectural modeling identifies several concerns in problem domain and associates them with design decisions in solution domain. There is, however, no commonsense on how to localize problem domain concerns and relate them to the solution domain. This paper proposes a modeling approach to address the architectural concerns in multiple concern spaces both for problem and solution domains, and align them "symmetrically ". This approach identifies the problem domain in multiple concern spaces by correlating t...
An Integrated Design Analysis Methodology to Address Piston Tribological Issues
Keribar, Rıfat; Dursunkaya, Zafer; Venkatesh, Ganapathy (1993-03-01)
An integrated simulation methodology for the analysis of piston tribology is presented. The methodology is comprised of coupled models of piston secondary dynamics, skirt oil film elastohydrodynamic lubrication and wristpin bearing hydrodynamics, developed earlier by the authors. Models have been further expanded to calculate distributions of cumulative wear load on the skirt and cylinder and to account for details of skirt crankcase end geometry. The skirt elasticity model has also been improved to account...
An immersive performative architectural design tool with daylighting simulations: a building information modeling-based approach
Akin, Sahin; Ergun, Oguzcan; Sürer, Elif; Gürsel Dino, İpek (Emerald, 2020-11-01)
Purpose In performative architectural design, daylighting is a crucial design consideration; however, the evaluation of daylighting in the design process can be challenging. Immersive environments (IEs) can create a dynamic, multi-sensory, first-person view in computer-generated environments, and can improve designers' visual perception and awareness during performative design processes. This research addresses the need for interactive and integrated design tools for IEs toward better-performing architectur...
