This study presents the design and implementation of a spatial H(infinity) controller for the active vibration control of a smart beam. The smart beam was modeled by assumed-modes method that results in a model including large number of resonant modes. The order of the model was reduced by direct model truncation and the model correction technique was applied to compensate the effect of the contribution of the out of range modes to the dynamics of the system. Additionally, spatial identification of the beam was performed, by comparing the analytical and experimental system models, in order to determine the modal damping ratios of the smart beam. Then, the spatial H(infinity) controller was designed and implemented to suppress the first two flexural vibrations of the smart beam.

This study presents the design and implementation of a spatial H-infinity controller for the active vibration control of a cantilevered smart beam. The smart beam consists of a passive aluminum beam (507x51x2mm) and eight symmetrically surface bonded SensorTech BM500 type PZT (Lead-Zirconate-Titanate) patches (25x20x0.5mm). PZT patches are used as actuators and a laser displacement sensor is used as sensor. The smart beam was analytically modelled by using the assumed-modes method. The model only included t...
GEOMETRY-CONSTRAINED SPATIAL PYRAMID ADAPTATION FOR IMAGE CLASSIFICATION
Tasli, H. Emrah; Sicre, Ronan; Gevers, Theo; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2014-10-30)
This paper proposes a geometry-constrained spatial pyramid adaptation approach for the image classification task. Scene geometry is used as an input parameter for generating the spatial pyramid definitions. The resulting region adaptation is performed in accordance with the predefined geometric guidelines and underlying image characteristics. Using an approximate global geometric correspondence, exploits the idea that images of the same category share a spatial similarity. This assumption is evaluated and j...

DIRECTIONALLY ADAPTIVE SUPER-RESOLUTION
Turgay, Emre; Akar, Gözde (2009-11-10)
In this paper a novel direction adaptive super-resolution (SR) image reconstruction method is proposed. The proposed maximum a-posteriori (MAP) based estimator uses gradient direction for optimal noise reduction while preserving the edges. Compared to the other edge-preserving methods, the proposed algorithm uses gradient direction in addition to the gradient amplitude for optimum regularization. The method comprises a gradient amplitude and direction estimation stage where a gradient direction map is obtai...
Radar performance analysis approaches for the evaluation of radar systems
Yener, Ümit; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
In this thesis study, some approaches are proposed for radar performance analysis. It turns out that average power and antenna aperture area (equivalently, antenna gain) are the most important parameters for the assessment or comparison of radar systems. Search and track load concepts and the utilization trade between search and tracking tasks in multifunction radars are also presented. For long distance search / tracking tasks, performance of a two-radar system is analyzed, and it is shown that cross range...
