The Multi-objective path placement optimization of parallel kinematic machines

Küçük, Ali
The aim of this study is to obtain optimal position and orientation of a trajectory frame with respect to the fixed frame of the manipulator. The work path which is given in the trajectory frame is also constrained in the workspace of the 3 – PRS parallel kinematic machine. In the analysis, forward and inverse kinematics solutions are derived as well as the inverse dynamics model using Lagrange’s Method. Several algorithms governing the motion of the manipulator are developed. Moreover, optimization goals are defined and evaluated with the genetic algorithm.


The model selection methods for sparse biological networks
Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda (null; 2019-10-30)
It is still crucial problem to estimate high dimensional graphical models and to choose the regularization parameter in dependent data. There are several classical methods such as Akaike’s information criterion and Bayesian Information criterion to solve this problem, but also more recent methods have been proposed such as stability selection and stability approach to regularization selection method (StARS) and some extensions of AIC and BIC which are more appropriate for high dimensional datasets. In this ...

This study discussed the effects of shape parameters on the radial point interpolation method (RPIM) accuracy in 2D geometrically nonlinear problems. Four finite deformation problems with compressible Neo-Hookean material are numerically solved with the RPIM algorithm using the multi-quadric (MQ) radial basis function. Both regular and irregular node distributions are used. Their displacements and Cauchy stresses are compared for different values of shape parameters and monomial basis. It is found that the ...
Three dimensional finite element modeling for the laterally loaded passive pile behavior
Ekici, Anıl; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
In this study, some of the factors affecting the slope stabilizing pile response have been investigated by means of three dimensional finite element solution using PLAXIS 3D software. Three full scaled field experiments were modeled for the verification of the proposed 3D models. It was concluded that PLAXIS 3D can successfully predict the measured pile deflection and force distributions. Afterwards, a parametric study was carried out. Two series of analyses (i) studying the effect of the pile embedment dep...

A wave approach is developed for the exact analysis of the harmonic response of uniform finite beams on multiple supports. The beam may be excited by single or multi-point harmonic forces or moments; its supports may have general linear characteristics which may include displacement-rotation coupling. Use is made of the harmonic response function for an infinite beam subjected to a single-point harmonic force or moment. The unknowns of the finite beam problem are the support reaction forces/moments and the ...
A New modal superposition method for nonlinear vibration analysis of structures using hybrid mode shapes
Ferhatoğlu, Erhan; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, a new modal superposition method based on a hybrid mode shape concept is developed for the determination of steady state vibration response of nonlinear structures. The method is developed specifically for systems having nonlinearities where the stiffness of the system may take different limiting values. Stiffness variation of these nonlinear systems enables one to define different linear systems corresponding to each value of the limiting equivalent stiffness. Moreover, the response of the ...
