The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of two different voxel resolutions for the preoperative assessment of mandibular osteotomies. The study was conducted on 37 dry adult human mandibles. To obtain measurement standardization, heated gutta-percha cones were placed on the dry mandibles to mark 20 anatomical points. These cones were used for all measurement groups. Cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) scans of the mandibles were made using 0.200 mm(3) and 0.400 mm(3) voxel sizes (Planmeca Promex-3D Helsinki, Finland). The results obtained from these two groups were compared with physical measurements obtained using a digital calliper, in order to analyze their predictive value. In the study, one voxel size did not have supremacy over the other in terms of accuracy. For mandibular osteotomies, 0.400 mm(3) voxel size can be preferred because of lower radiation dose.

Adoption of European Union's IPPC Directive to a textile mill: Analysis of water and energy consumption
Kocabas, A. Merve; Yukseler, Hande; Dilek, Filiz Bengü; Yetiş, Ülkü (2009-10-01)
The present study was undertaken as part of the first application and evaluation of the BREF (Best Available Techniques; BAT Reference Document) Textile Document within the context of the European Union's Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive to a large scale textile mill in Turkey. The BAT requirements for the denim manufacturing textile mill were selected in cooperation with the factory management. Detailed mass balance calculations were conducted to evaluate the overall effect of t...
Efficient Analysis of Reflectarrays through the Use of Characteristic Modes
Ercil, Erdinc; Alatan, Lale; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (2015-05-17)
The aim of this study is to establish an efficient analysis method for reflectarrays with varying element sizes. The efficiency of the method relies on utilization of characteristic modes as macro basis functions, and thereby reducing the MoM matrix equation size dramatically. Although the reflectarrays on the focus of this study are comprised of differently sized elements, it was observed that, when same numerical characteristic mode is used to represent the current on all patches, the resultant approximat...
Comparison of three orientation agreement strategies in self-propelled particle systems with turn angle restrictions in synchronous and asynchronous settings
Samiloglu, Andac T.; Gazi, Veysel; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2008-03-01)
In this study, we compare three different orientation agreement strategies of multi-agent/particle systems under different conditions. We investigate the behavior of multi-agent systems utilizing these strategies with different combinations of the following properties: (i) the multi-agent systems may be synchronous or asynchronous, (ii) they may travel in bounded or unbounded regions and (iii) the mobile agents may have turning speed restrictions. The agents/particles are assumed to move with constant speed...
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...
Visual perspective in causal attribution, empathy and attitude change
Onder, OM; Öner Özkan, Bengi (SAGE Publications, 2003-12-01)
The aim of the present study was to test the effect of visual perspective on the actor-observer bias. For this aim, we examined the effects of different visual perspectives on individuals' external and internal attributions. In addition to this, we examined the presence or absence of an attitude change toward the death penalty due to participants' visual perspective. One week before the experiment, we measured the participants' attitudes toward the death penalty. Then, during the experiment, films produced ...
