Development of a computer aided engineering tool for pipe lines

Aydınoğlu, Kemal Yüce
A computer program is developed to solve pipe network problems for incompressible uids. It is intended to run under the Computer Aided Engineering software package CAEedaTM. The nite element method is employed to model the governing equations. The accuracy of the program is validated by comparing the results of ve test case problems choosen from a reference literature. The good agreement between present program and reference solutions is observed. By using geometry, pre-process and post-process capabilities of CAEedaTM, as a result of the program integration, complex pipe network systems can be analyzed easily. Consequently, it may be used as a promising tool for pipe network analysis.


Evaluation of Terahertz Channel in Data Centers
MOLLAHASANİ, Shahram; Onur, Ertan (2016-04-29)
Designing data center network topologies with the objective of minimizing cost, increasing bisection bandwidth and decreasing latency is a difficult problem. The solutions in the literature mainly concentrate on wired networks and minimizing wiring costs thereof. Only a few proposals address the benefit of employing wireless communications in data centers due to spectrum and bandwidth limitations of current wireless communication technologies. By using terahertz communication in a data center as a complemen...
A Conditional coverage path planning method for an autonomous lawn mower
Karol, Ardıç; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
Randomized and deterministic coverage path planning methods are widely used in autonomous lawn mowers. Random planning cannot guarantee a complete coverage, whereas, many deterministic techniques are not solely eligible for unstructured outdoor environments, since they highly suffer from wheel slippage or numerical drift. Besides, complete coverage techniques either demands high computational power or expensive sensor hardware. A genuine, Conditional Coverage Path Planning (CCPP) method, which satisfies com...
Parallel solution of sparse linear systems to find the shortest path in large scale graphs
Arslan, Hilal; Manguoğlu, Murat (2018-06-29)
Solving the shortest path problem on large scale networks is crucial for many applications. As parallelism became more common with the advent of multi-core architectures as well as large and complex networks have begun to emerge in many settings, it is inevitable to come up with algorithms that take advantage of the current architectures. One alternative to solve the shortest path problem is to use one of the classical or improved parallel variations of the Dijkstra’s algorithm. However, when the size of th...
Development and application of a broadband multilevel fast multipole algorithm for challenging multiscale problems
Karaosmanoǧlu, B.; YILMAZ, ALİ ÖZGÜR; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2016-08-11)
A broadband implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is developed and employed to solve multiscale problems involving large objects with small details and discretizations. Despite its limited accuracy, the proposed scaled diagonalization enables stable computations of electromagnetic interactions at arbitrary short distances with respect to wavelength. The effectiveness of the developed implementation is demonstrated on challenging problems involving realistic objects discretized with large...
Broadband Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm Based on an Approximate Diagonalization of the Green's Function
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2015-07-01)
We present a broadband multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for fast and efficient solutions of three-dimensional multiscale problems involving large objects with dense discretizations. The proposed solver is based on the approximate diagonalization of the Green's function using scaled spherical and plane waves, leading to stable interaction computations for arbitrarily short distances in terms of wavelength. Despite contradictory requirements on the scaling factor that limit the accuracy of the diag...
