Nuclear Fission-Nuclear Fusion algorithm for global optimization: a modified Big Bang-Big Crunch algorithm
YALÇIN, YAĞIZER; Pekcan, Onur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-04-01)
This study introduces a derivative of the well-known optimization algorithm, Big Bang-Big Crunch (BB-BC), named Nuclear Fission-Nuclear Fusion-based BB-BC, simply referred to as N2F. Broadly preferred in the engineering op...
Lean Project Management using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Ersöz, Ahmet Bahaddin; Pekcan, Onur; Tokdemir, Onur Behzat (2019-02-01)
<p>As the construction industry is one of the dominant contributors to the world’s total CO2 emissions and it has huge negative impacts on the environment, sustainable construction has become a key aspiration in the field....
Comparison of microbially induced calcium carbonate precipitation eligibility using sporosarcina pasteurii and bacillus licheniformis on two different sands
Sarıçiçek, Yılmaz Emre; Gurbanov, Rafig; Pekcan, Onur; Gözen, Ayşe Gül (Informa UK Limited, 2019-01-02)
The use of biological means for ground improvement have become popular, which generally works through the process called microbially-induced calcium carbonate precipitation (MICP). Many studies indicate successful applicat...
An automated approach for the design of Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls incorporating metaheuristic optimization algorithms
YALÇIN, YAĞIZER; Orhon, Murat; Pekcan, Onur (2019-01-01)
Considered as cost-efficient, reliable and aesthetic alternatives to the conventional retaining structures, Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls (MSEWs) have been increasingly used in civil engineering practice over the pre...
Crack identification for rigid pavements using unmanned aerial vehicles
Ersöz, Ahmet Bahaddin; Pekcan, Onur; TEKE, TÜRKER (2017-09-22)
A modified approach to cross entropy method: Elitist stepped distribution algorithm
Altun, Murat; Pekcan, Onur (2017-09-01)
This paper introduces a new algorithm named Elitist Stepped Distribution Algorithm (ESDA), which is inspired from the existing Cross Entropy Method (CEM) through the modification of elite sample based normal distribution u...
A regional near-surface high frequency spectral attenuation (kappa) model for northwestern Turkey
Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Sisman, Fatma Nurten; Pekcan, Onur (2014-10-01)
One approach to model the high-frequency attenuation of spectral amplitudes of S-waves is to express the observed exponential decay in terms of Kappa (kappa) factor [1]. Kappa is a significant parameter used for identifyin...

Cicekci, Ozan C.; Turkeri, Mustafa K.; Pekcan, Onur (2014-01-01)
A bat-inspired algorithm for structural optimization
Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; TEKE, TÜRKER; Pekcan, Onur (Elsevier BV, 2013-11-01)
Bat-inspired (BI) search is a recently developed numerical optimization technique that makes use of echolocation behavior of bats in seeking a design space. This study intends to explore capabilities and potentials of this...
Soft computing methodology to determine pavement thickness from falling weight deflectometer testing
Pekcan, Onur; Tutumluer, E.; Ghaboussi, J. (2010-12-01)
