In this paper, the Maximum Opposite Angulation Approach (MOAA) for 3-D including the topology optimization is discussed. The MOAA algorithm is developed to generate meshes in 2-D and 3-D. The basic principles of the algorithm both in 2-D applications and in 3-D applications, is to pre-set uniformity to the initial data set to form point pairs yielding possible shortest line segments. These line segments are connected with the points providing the maximum angle for the vertex of the triangular mesh to be constructed. Thus, the algorithm provides triangular meshes having well balanced interior angles and good aspect ratios. The MOAA algorithm can be proved similar to the Delaunay’s approach in 2-D from the principle and with the quickest speed. In 3-D, it was also shown that it is much more efficient than many Delaunay class algorithms with mesh architectures preserving the topology, for uniformly organized data points. In this study, the topology optimization together with the MOAA algorithm is presented to improve the precision of reconstruction of the original surface. In this context, topology judgment for intersection problem in 3-D, distortion phenomenon, the possibility of loosing some characteristics of the original surface is thoroughly investigated.


Bi-directional evolutionary algorithm for volume constrained topology optimization of axisymmetric solids
Tikenoğulları, Oğuz Ziya; Oral, Süha; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2015)
In this thesis, topology optimization of axisymmetric solids is studied. Analysis of the axisymmetric problem is performed by coding an axisymmetric finite element formulation in association with the optimization code which is based on Bi-Directional Evolutionary Optimization (BESO) method. The optimization method used in this study includes recent improvements to the evolutionary optimization algorithms. These are bi-directional evolution, sensitivity number filtering and sensitivity-time averaging. In the...
Moving mesh discontinuous Galerkin methods for PDEs with traveling waves
UZUNCA, MURAT; Karasözen, Bülent; Kucukseyhan, T. (2017-01-01)
In this paper, a moving mesh discontinuous Galerkin (dG) method is developed for nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) with traveling wave solutions. The moving mesh strategy for one dimensional PDEs is based on the rezoning approach which decouples the solution of the PDE from the moving mesh equation. We show that the dG moving mesh method is able to resolve sharp wave fronts and wave speeds accurately for the optimal, arc-length and curvature monitor functions. Numerical results reveal the effi...

The dynamic response of multiple-degree-of-freedom nonlinear structures is usually determined by numerical integration of the equations of motion, an approach which is computationally very expensive for steady-state response analysis of large structures. In this paper, an alternative semianalytical quasilinear method based on the describing function formulation is proposed for the harmonic response analysis of structures with symmetrical nonlinearities. The equations of motion are converted to a set of nonl...
Optimization of Power Conversion Efficiency in Threshold Self-Compensated UHF Rectifiers With Charge Conservation Principle
Gharehbaghi, Kaveh; KOÇER, FATİH; Külah, Haluk (2017-09-01)
This paper presents a compact model for threshold self-compensated rectifiers that can be used to optimize circuit parameters early in the design phase instead of time-consuming transient simulations. A design procedure is presented for finding the optimum aspect ratio of transistors used in the converter and number of rectifying stages to achieve the maximum power conversion efficiency. In the presented analysis, the relation between the power conversion efficiency and the load current over the variation o...
Real-Time Detection of Interharmonics and Harmonics of AC Electric Arc Furnaces on GPU Framework
Uz-Logoglu, Eda; Salor, Ozgul; Ermiş, Muammer (2019-11-01)
In this paper, a method based on the multiple synchronous reference frame analysis is recommended and implemented to detect time-varying harmonics and interharmonics of rapidly fluctuating asymmetrical industrial loads. The experimental work has been carried out on a typical three-phase alternating current arc furnace installation. In the recommended method, the reference frame is rotated in both directions at speeds corresponding to the positive and negative sequences of all harmonics and all interharmonic...
