An experimental study on off-design performance and noise in small pumps
Şahin, Fatma Ceyhun; Eralp, O. Cahit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
This thesis study is focused on experimentally investigating pump noise at design and off-design operations and its relations with pressure fluctuations. Small size pumps are placed in a semi-anechoic chamber and operated at various system conditions and various rotational pump speeds. Pump operational data, noise data and time dependent pressure data are recorded. Fast Fourier Transform spectra of noise and pressure data are compared. Coherence spectrum between sound pressure level and hydraulic pressures ...
A comparative analysis of matched field processors for underwater acoustic source localization
Sarıkaya, Tevfik Bahadır; Çiloğlu, Tolga; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, localization of the underwater sound sources using matched field processing technique is considered. Localization of the underwater sound sources is one of the most important problems encountered in underwater acoustics and signal processing. Many techniques were developed to localize sources in range, depth and bearing angle. However, most of these techniques do not consider or only slightly takes into account the environmental factors that dramatically effect the propagation of underwater ...
A study on language modeling for Turkish large vocabulary continuous speech recognition
Bayer, Ali Orkan; Turhan Yöndem, Meltem; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
This study focuses on large vocabulary Turkish continuous speech recognition. Continuous speech recognition for Turkish cannot be performed accurately because of the agglutinative nature of the language. The agglutinative nature decreases the performance of the classical language models that are used in the area. In this thesis firstly, acoustic models using different parameters are constructed and tested. Then, three types of n-gram language models are built. These involve class-based models, stem-based mo...
A hypercomputational approach to the agent causation theory of free will
Mersin, Serhan; Sayan, Erdinç; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2006)
Hypercomputation, which is the general concept embracing all machinery capable of carrying out more tasks than Turing Machines and beyond the Turing Limit, has implications for various fields including mathematics, physics, computer science and philosophy. Regarding its philosophical aspects, it is necessary to reveal the position of hypercomputation relative to the classical computational theory of mind in order to clarify and broaden the scope of hypercomputation so that it encompasses some phenomena whic...
A comparative study of tree encodings for evolutionary computing
Saka, Esin; Üçoluk, Göktürk; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
One of the most important factors on the success of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) about trees is the representation of them. The representation should exhibit efficiency, locality and heritability to enable effective evolutionary computing. Neville proposed three different methods for encoding labeled trees. The first one is similar with Prüfer's encoding. In 2001, it is reported that, the use of Prüfer numbers is a poor representation of spanning trees for evolutionary search, since it has low locality for...
