This study proposes a new correlation improvement technique for the optimum node removal location to get improved modal assurance criterion (MAC) matrix. The technique is applied to updating of the finite element model (FEM) of a structure. The developed routine is tried on a utility helicopter. It is proven that it is capable of showing better performance than the coordinate MAC (coMAC), commonly used in such analyses. Commercial software is utilized for the finite element analysis of the helicopter fuselage and tail. Experimental modal analyses are also performed for updating the model for tail of the helicopter to demonstrate the effectiveness of the new technique.


An interactive ranking-based multi-criteria choice algorithm with filtering: Applications to university selection
Karakaya, Gülşah (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2019-6)
In this study, we develop an interactive algorithm to converge to the most preferred alternative of a decision maker (DM) among a set of discrete alternatives. The algorithm presents a limited number of alternatives to the DM and collects preference ranking of them iteratively. The preferences are modeled by a flexible and realistic preference function. To improve the performance, the alternatives presented are determined by a filtering method. We compare our algorithm with benchmark algorithms on nume...
A matheuristic for binary classification of data sets using hyperboxes
Akbulut, Derya; İyigün, Cem; Özdemirel, Nur Evin (null; 2018-07-08)
In this study, an optimization approach is proposed for the binary classification problem. A Mixed Integer Programming (MIP) model formulation is used to construct hyperboxes as classifiers, minimizing the number of misclassified and unclassified samples as well as overlapping of hyperboxes. The hyperboxes are determined by some lower and upper bounds on the feature values, and overlapping of these hyperboxes is allowed to keep a balance between misclassification and overfitting. A matheuristic, namely Iter...
A New Approach to Automatic Road Extraction from Satellite Images using Boosted Classifiers
In this study, a supervised method for automatic road detection based on spectral indices and structural properties is proposed. The need of generalizing the spectral features for the images captured by different kinds of devices is investigated. Mean-shift segmentation algorithm is employed to partition the input multi-spectral image in addition to k-means which is used as a complementary method for structural feature generation. Adaboost learning algorithm is utilized with extracted features to distinguis...
A New modal superposition method for nonlinear vibration analysis of structures using hybrid mode shapes
Ferhatoğlu, Erhan; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, a new modal superposition method based on a hybrid mode shape concept is developed for the determination of steady state vibration response of nonlinear structures. The method is developed specifically for systems having nonlinearities where the stiffness of the system may take different limiting values. Stiffness variation of these nonlinear systems enables one to define different linear systems corresponding to each value of the limiting equivalent stiffness. Moreover, the response of the ...
A Partition Based Method for Spectrum-Preserving Mesh Simplification
Yazgan, Misranur; Sahillioğlu, Yusuf; Department of Computer Engineering (2022-8-29)
When the complexity of a mesh starts introducing high computational costs, mesh simplification methods come into the picture, to reduce the number of elements utilized to represent the mesh. Majority of the simplification methods focus on preserving the appearance of the mesh, ignoring the spectral properties of the differential operators derived from the mesh. The spectrum of the Laplace-Beltrami operator is essential for a large subset of applications in geometry processing. Coarsening a mesh without cons...
