Route optimization for solid waste transportation using parallel hybrid genetic algorithms
Uşkay, Selim Onur; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2010)
The transportation phase of solid waste management is highly critical as it may constitute approximately 60 to 75 percent of the total cost. Therefore, even a small amount of improvement in the collection operation can result in a significant saving in the overall cost. Despite the fact that there exist a considerable amount of studies on Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP), a vast majority of the existing studies are not integrated with GIS and hence they do not consider the path constraints of real road network...
Maritime Search and Rescue (MSAR) Operations: An Analysis of Optimal Asset Allocation
Akbayrak, Erhan; Tural, Mustafa Kemal (null, 2017-01-01)
Managing sea rescue assets and their distribution in the various search and rescue (SAR) locations should be carried out according to some well-defined criteria in order to cover SAR areas of the world properly. In this chapter, we intend to give a comparative literature review of maritime search and rescue (MSAR) operations with more emphasis on asset allocation. A framework of a new approach that aims to locate SAR stations and allocate SAR assets to the stations is introduced to the MSAR literature that ...
Coastal management to improve environmental quality in Göcek Bay, Turkey
Can, Ö.; Alp, Emre; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet (2012-09-17)
Being one of the specially protected areas declared by Environmental Protection Agency for Special Areas in Turkey (EPASA), Göcek Bay is threatened by increasing boat tourism. Because of the insufficient legal practices and regulations, boats continue to discharge their domestic waste and bilge wastewaters to the bay. Large scale measures are being planned for decreasing the pollution and protecting the region. For a sustainable coastal management, technical, social, political and economic tools are needed ...
Coastal scenic evaluation by application of fuzzy logic mathematics
Uçar, Barış; Ergin, Ayşen; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
Coastal scenery evaluated by utilization of selected landscape components was subject to fuzzy logic system approach. Based on this methodology, coastal areas were grouped into five classes using the evaluation index D giving the overall result of scenic assessment over the attributes. Within the methodology, public perception surveys from Turkey, UK, Malta, and Croatia were used as a tool for environmental perception in the methodology. The results of the public perception surveys were utilized to obtain t...
