Analysis of pulse diversity in radar systems

Keçelioğlu, Umut
In this thesis, the pulse diversity technique in radar systems in high clutter environments is investigated. In this technique, different pulse compression methods are used in each pulse in the transmitted burst to increase the unambiguous range. In pulse diversity, the design of filters used in the receiver is as important as designing the transmitted waveform. At the output of pulse-burst filter that processes pulse-by-pulse, as many channels as the pulses in the burst occur. Each of these channels is matched to a certain range interval. In order to improve the detector performance, the phase codes used in the transmitted pulse-burst waveform and their corresponding filters must have good auto-correlation and cross-correlation properties, either individually or as their sum. In the literature some phase codes, having mentioned properties, are present. However, the performance of these codes in radar applications is not fully evaluated. The studies in the thesis show that the codes in the literature cannot be used directly in radar applications. In the scope of thesis, optimization criteria suitable for radar applications are defined and applied according to the mentioned requirements. Then, the obtained phase codes are tested in the radar simulator.


Analysis and simulation of the backscattering enhancement phenomenon from randomly distributed point scatterers
Ağar, Kartal Şahin; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
This thesis investigates analysis and simulation of the backscattering enhancement phenomenon from randomly distributed point scatterers. These point scatterers are randomly distributed within a cube or a sphere and then the backscattering enhancement phenomenon from both cubical and spherical distributions are examined throughout the thesis. The general characteristic differences between cubical and spherical distribution about the scattering phenomenon are observed. T-matrix method is used for analytic in...

Recent Improvements in document image systems and their low-cost implementation on networks of microcomputers is leading to the reengineering of many information systems. We describe how document image systems can be applied to information systems. In order to compare the performance of a conventional information system with one implemented with document imaging processing capability we conducted a discrete event simulation. We modeled the conventional information system for processing graduate student ...
Boundary element-finite element acoustic analysis of coupled domains
İrfanoğlu, Bülent; Çalışkan, Mehmet; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2004)
This thesis studies interactions between coupled acoustic domain(s) and enclosing rigid or elastic boundary. Boundary element-finite element (BE-FE) sound-structure interaction models are developed by coupling frequency domain BE acoustic and FE structural models using linear inviscid acoustic and elasticity theories. Flexibility in analyses is provided by discontinuous triangular and quadrilateral elements in the BE method (BEM), and a rectangular plate and a triangular shell element in the FE method (FEM)...

An optimisation approach is presented for the problem of reconstructing the permittivity and conductivity profiles of a dielectric slab from the reflected and transmitted field data. The problem is treated as an optimal control problem where the norm of the difference of measured and calculated boundary data is minimised subject to the state equation governing the system. The original constrained optimisation problem is reduced to the evaluation of stationary points of an augmented functional which is obtai...
Numerical study on effects of computational domain length on flow field in standing wave thermoacoustic couple
MERGEN, SÜHAN; Yıldırım, Ender; TÜRKOĞLU, HAŞMET (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-01)
For the analysis of thermoacoustic (TA) devices, computational methods are commonly used. In the computational studies found in the literature, the flow domain has been modelled differently by different researchers. A common approach in modelling the flow domain is to truncate the computational domain around the stack, instead of modelling the whole resonator to save computational time. However, where to truncate the domain is not clear. In this study, we have investigated how the simulation results are aff...
