Challenges in service network expansion: An application in donated breastmilk banking in South Africa
Cao, Wenwei; Çelik, Melih; Ergun, Ozlem; Swann, Julie; Viljoen, Nadia (2016-03-01)
Neonatal infections are the leading cause for neonatal deaths in developing countries, resulting in more than 1.5 million infant fatalities annually. The most effective prevention against neonatal infections is exclusive breastfeeding. However, reasons such as maternal death during birth, maternal illnesses such as HIV and TB-meningitis, and lack of rooming-in facilities prevent the infant to be breastfed by his/her mother. One way to mitigate these infections is by supplying pasteurized donor-expressed bre...
A remark on a paper of Blasco
Ercan, Z. (2006-06-01)
We generalize and give a simple proof of a Theorem of Blasco.
A regional near-surface high frequency spectral attenuation (kappa) model for northwestern Turkey
Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; 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 identifying the high-frequency attenuation behavior of ground motions as well as one of the key parameters for stochastic strong ground motion simulation method. As of now, there is not a systematic investigation of the Kappa parameter based on the recently-compiled Turkish ground motions. In this s...
On-road trajectory generation from GPS data: A particle filtering/smoothing application
Roth, Michael; Gustafsson, Fredrik; Orguner, Umut (2012-09-12)
Many studies in target localization and tracking use GPS measurements as ground truth. These GPS locations might be in conflict with computed estimates in applications where road network information is available (and employed in the estimation procedure). This paper proposes to use particle methods to generate on-road trajectories that can be used as improved ground truth for such road constrained estimation schemes. A bootstrap particle filter and three different particle smoothers are utilized to obtain k...
3-D soil structure interaction analyses of three identical buildings in Sakarya city after 17 August 1999 Kocaeli earthquake
Ünal, Orhan; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Department of Civil Engineering (2003)
The aim of this study is to analyze the soil structure interaction of three identical buildings on ®ahinler Street of Sakarya city which had no damage to heavy damage after the Kocaeli (1999) earthquake. For the purpose of 3-D dynamic nonlinear analysis of the soil site and the overlying structures, Flac3D software was chosen as the numerical modeling framework. Soil properties were determined by using the results of available site investigation studies. A three dimensional mesh was created to represent the...
