Application of ring beam stiffness criterion for discretely supported shells under global shear and bending
Topkaya, Cem (SAGE Publications, 2018-12-01)
Silos in the form of a cylindrical metal shell are commonly elevated to provide access to the space beneath. In general, a few discrete column supports at evenly spaced intervals are commonly utilized. The presence of discrete supports results in circumferential non-uniformity in the axial compressive stress above the support. Depending on the size of the structure, several different support arrangements may be chosen. A stiff ring beam is utilized in larger silos to transfer and evenly distribute the discr...
Application of nonlinear unit root tests and threshold autoregressive models
Uysal, Ela; Yıldırım Kasap, Dilem; Department of Economics (2012)
Popularity of nonlinear threshold models and unit root tests has increased after the recent empirical studies concerning the effects of business cycles on macroeconomic data. These studies have shown that an economic variable may react differently in response to downturns and recoveries in a business cycle. Inspiring from empirical results, this thesis investigates dynamics of Turkish key macroeconomic data, namely capacity utilization rate, growth of import and export volume indices, growth of gross domest...
Application of stochastic simulations of biological networks under different impulsive scenarios
Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda (null; 2016-06-01)
The impulses are one of the sources of fluctuations which lead to the sharp changes in the biochemical systems such as the changes in epidemic and population models. These effects have been comprehensively studied under deterministic models, whereas, have not been analyzed in stochastic models. Hereby, in this study, we implement these effects in two exact stochastic simulation algorithms, namely, the direct method and the first reaction method under different dimensional systems and impulses scenarios. In ...

Application of Dempster-Schafer Method in Family-Based Association Studies
Rajabli, Farid; Goktas, Unal; İnan, Gül (2013-07-01)
In experiments designed for family-based association studies, methods such as transmission disequilibrium test require large number of trios to identify single-nucleotide polymorphisms associated with the disease. However, unavailability of a large number of trios is the Achilles' heel of many complex diseases, especially for late-onset diseases. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to this problem by means of the Dempster-Shafer method. The simulation studies show that the Dempster-Shafer method has ...
