Relay-Assisted Beamforming for Multicast Systems with Energy Harvesting Capability
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-05-19)
In this paper, multi-group multicasting scenario is considered where single antenna sources transmit their own information to different groups of users with the help of single antenna relays. Users have energy harvesting capability, i.e., a part of the received signal is used for information decoding while the rest is used for energy harvesting. Beamforming is performed by the relays which use amplify-and-forward protocol. The design of complex relay coefficients and power splitting ratios for the users is ...
Lifetime condition prediction for bridges
Bayrak, Hakan; Akgül, Ferhat; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
Infrastructure systems are crucial facilities. They supply the necessary transportation, water and energy utilities for the public. However, while aging, these systems gradually deteriorate in time and approach the end of their lifespans. As a result, they require periodic maintenance and repair in order to function and be reliable throughout their lifetimes. Bridge infrastructure is an essential part of the transportation infrastructure. Bridge management systems (BMSs), used to monitor the condition and s...

In this paper, an efficient hybrid beamforming architecture combining analog and digital beamforming is proposed to reduce the number of radio frequency (RF) chains. It provides a good compromise between the higher degree of freedom of digital beamforming and hardware cost and complexity. In this hybrid system, two bit RF phase shifters are used as analog beamformers due to the fact that this enables the conversion of the combinatorial optimization problem to a continuous programming formulation. The overal...

Mol solution for transient turbulent flow in a heated pipe
Uygur, AB; Tarhan, T; Selçuk, Nevin (2005-08-01)
A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code, based on direct numerical simulation (DNS) and method of lines (MOL) approach previously developed for the prediction of transient turbulent, incompressible, confined non-isothermal flows with constant wall temperature was applied to the prediction of turbulent flow and temperature fields in flows dominated by forced convection in circular tubes with strong heating. The code was parallelized in order to meet the high grid resolutions required by DNS of turbulent fl...
