A hybrid uniform geometrical theory of diffraction-moment method for efficient analysis of electromagnetic radiation/scattering from large finite planar arrays
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Chou, HT; Nepa, P (2000-03-01)
A hybrid uniform geometrical theory of diffraction (UTD)-moment method (MOM) approach is introduced to provide an efficient analysis of the electromagnetic radiation/scattering from electrically large, finite, planar periodic arrays. This study is motivated by the fact that conventional numerical methods become rapidly inefficient and even intractable for the analysis of electrically large arrays containing many antenna or frequency-selective surface (FSS) elements. In the present hybrid UTD-MOM approach, t...

A hybrid evolutionary performance improvement procedure for optimisation of continuous variable discharge concentrators
Sakuhuni, Givemore; Klein, Bern; Altun, Naci Emre (2015-05-05)
An iterative hybrid performance improvement approach integrating artificial neural network modelling and Pareto genetic algorithm optimisation was developed and tested. The optimisation procedure, code named NNREGA, was tested for tuning pilot scale Continuous Variable Discharge Concentrator (CVD) in order to simultaneously maximise recovery and upgrade ratio of gold bearing sulphides from a polymetallic massive sulphide ore. For the tests the CVD was retrofitted during normal operation on the flotation tai...
A particle swarm optimization approach for hexahedral mesh smoothing
Yilmaz, A. Egemen; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2009-05-10)
There are some approaches for all-hexahedral mesh quality improvement by means of node-movement while preserving the connectivity. Among these methods, the most easily implemented and well known one is the Laplacian smoothing method; however, for this method mesh quality improvement is not guaranteed in all cases, and this approach might cause inverted elements especially in concave regions. In this work, a method for the improvement of hexahedral mesh shape-quality Without causing inverted elements is prop...
A fully implicit finite element method for bidomain models of cardiac electrophysiology
Dal, Hüsnü; Göktepe, Serdar (Informa UK Limited, 2012-01-01)
This work introduces a novel, unconditionally stable and fully coupled finite element method for the bidomain system of equations of cardiac electrophysiology. The transmembrane potential phi(i) - phi(e) and the extracellular potential phi(e) are treated as independent variables. To this end, the respective reaction-diffusion equations are recast into weak forms via a conventional isoparametric Galerkin approach. The resultant nonlinear set of residual equations is consistently linearised. The method result...
