Formation preserving path finding in 3-D terrains
Bayrak, Ali Galip; Polat, Faruk (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-03-01)
Navigation of a group of autonomous agents that are required to maintain a formation is a challenging task which has not been studied much especially in 3-D terrains. This paper presents a novel approach to collision free path finding of multiple agents preserving a predefined formation in 3-D terrains. The proposed method could be used in many areas like navigation of semi-automated forces (SAF) at unit level in military simulations and non-player characters (NPC) in computer games. The proposed path findi...
Uncertainty Analysis of Heat Transfer Predictions Using Statistically Modeled Data From a Cooled 1-1/2 Stage High-Pressure Transonic Turbine
Kahveci, Harika Senem (ASME International, 2014-06-01)
This paper compares predictions from a 3D Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes code and a statistical representation of measurements from a cooled 1-1/2 stage high-pressure transonic turbine to quantify predictive process sensitivity. A multivariable regression technique was applied to both the inlet temperature measurements obtained at the inlet rake, the wall temperature, and heat transfer measurements obtained via heat-flux gauges on the blade airfoil surfaces. By using the statistically modeled temperature p...
Shape-invariance approach and Hamiltonian hierarchy method on the Woods-Saxon potential for l not equal 0 states
Berkdemir, Cueneyt; BERKDEMİR, Ayşe; Sever, Ramazan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-03-01)
An analytically solvable Woods-Saxon potential for l not equal 0 states is presented within the framework of Supersymmetric Quantum Mechanics formalism. The shape-invariance approach and Hamiltonian hierarchy method are included in calculations by means of a translation of parameters. The approximate energy spectrum of this potential is obtained for l not equal 0 states, applying the Woods-Saxon square approximation to the centrifugal barrier term of the Schrodinger equation.
Pseudo-Dynamic Testing, Performance Assessment, and Modeling of Deficient Reinforced Concrete Frames
Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Binici, Barış (2014-09-01)
A pair of half-scale, three-story, three-bay concrete bare frames were tested by the pseudo-dynamic (PsD) testing procedure. Both frames represent common deficiencies. of non-seismic construction. Continuous column reinforcement in one specimen and insufficient lap splices at the bottom ends of columns in the other specimen were the only significant differences. Measured seismic performances of both frames were assessed by using the rotation and strain-based acceptance criteria of two different seismic code...
