The results of a systematic literature review conducted for variability modelling in software component models are analysed and presented here. A well-planned protocol guided the screening of 3230 papers that resulted in the identification of 55 papers. Reviewing these papers, 23 of them were considered as primary studies related to our research questions. A comparison framework is introduced to further understand, assess, and compare those selected papers. Observations about the important aspects of component models that support the variability capability are summarised. Prominent trends and approaches are discussed along with a comparative analysis of the component models. Only a few component models were found to be explicitly accommodating variability concerns. The identified variability modelling problems require further research for attaining better reuse capabilities.


Evaluation of visual quality metrics
Ölgün, Ramazan Ferhat; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
The aim of this study is to work on the visual quality metrics that are widely accepted in literature, to evaluate them on different distortion types and to give a comparison of overall performances in terms of prediction accuracy, monotonicity, consistency and complexity. The algorithms behind the quality metrics in literature and parameters used for quality metric performance evaluations are studied. This thesis also includes the explanation of Human Visual System, classification of visual quality metrics...
Performance comparisons of seismic assessment methods with PSD test results of a deficient RC frame
Ozcebe, G.; KURT, ELİF; Binici, Barış; Kurç, Özgür; Canbay, Erdem; Akpinar, U. (2009-12-01)
The accuracy of estimating the performance levels of a deficient RC frame using linear elastic and nonlinear dynamic analysis is evaluated in this study. This was achieved by comparing the response of a structure tested with pseudo-dynamic testing and estimated by the linear elastic assessment procedures along with nonlinear dynamic analysis. The test structure (three bay-two storey planar frame) is a 1/2 scale reinforced concrete frame having masonry infill walls in the central span. The test frame contain...
Investigation of the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software on fault-proneness
Gölcük, Halit; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This study investigates the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software, which are observable at the model level of the software developed by means of Unified Modeling Language (UML), on software quality, assessing quality in terms of fault-proneness. In the scope of this thesis study, real-time embedded software components developed by Aselsan, a leading defense industry company in Turkey, were analyzed. The correlation between software metrics measured from the UML models of the soft...
Review of Studies Related to Pedagogical Content Knowledge in the Context of Science Teacher Education: Turkish Case
Aydin, Sevgi; Boz, Yezdan (2012-12-01)
As a review study, the present study was carried out in order to introduce PCK construct to researchers and evaluate which aspects of PCK were studied in our country, and, finally, make recommendations in light of the analysis of the studies for further research. For this purpose, ERIC database, YOK (Higher Education Council) database were searched by using "Pedagogical Content Knowledge" as keyword. Moreover, journals published in Turkey and which are possible to be reached electronically were searched usi...
Design scaling of aeroballistic range models
Kutluay, Ümit; Balkan, Raif Tuna; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2004)
The aim of this thesis is to develop a methodology for obtaining an optimum configuration for the aeroballistic range models. In the design of aeroballistic range models, there are mainly three similarity requirements to be matched between the model and the actual munition: external geometry, location of the centre of gravity and the ratio of axial mass moment of inertia to the transverse mass moment of inertia. Furthermore, it is required to have a model with least possible weight, so that the required tes...
