In an energy harvesting communication system, energy is derived from outside sources and becomes partially available at different points in time. The constraints induced by this property on energy consumption plays an active role in the design of efficient communication systems. This thesis focuses on the optimal design of transmission and networking schemes for energy harvesting wireless communication systems. In particular, an energy harvesting transmitter broadcasting data to two receivers in an AWGN bro...

Optimization of water distribution networks using mixed-integer linear programming
Uzun, Eren; Altan Sakarya, Ayşe Burcu; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
The present study aims to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the design of water distribution networks by making use of mixed integer linear programming. The developed optimization algorithm considers the minimization of the total cost as the objective function. The total cost of water distribution network is defined as cost of pipes, reservoirs and pumps. Nodal demands, nodal pressure limits and pipe velocity limits are satisfied while optimizing the network. Energy equation is the equality constr...

An investigation for the development of an interactive computer program for the assessment of strength of a single fastener composite joint in single shear was carried out. Database from previous experimental programs and design sources was evaluated for the establishment of the program. Some experiments were also done with single shear bolted carbon fiber reinforced composite laminates. The suggested computer program models the joint behavior by considering the laminates as homogeneous plates with represen...
