Caricature is the art of expressing an event that will be described in many pages in writing, visually with a small drawing. The details of the drawing, the style, and the objects used in the drawing, which make up the visual structure, are very important in conveying the event or thought. Therefore, different caricaturists express similar events (eg. social or political messages) using different details and objects according to their own style and imagination worlds. Determining which caricature belongs to which caricaturist will help us to organize large collections, determine originality, and make caricature suggestions based on subject/style. In this study, a total of 4212 caricature from 10 different Turkish caricaturists were collected from the Internet and a new caricature data set was created. Using this dataset, both the existing Convolutional Neural Network models and the proposed new network, ComicNet, are trained and their performances are compared. Experiments show that ComicNet is the most successful model with an accuracy of 94.68%.

A Study on matched-piece lapping process for production of precision machine elements
Vayghannezhad, Salar; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
The process of lapping has been long regarded as an art. Since the quality of lapping differs from one operator to another, significantly and the results are often time inconsistent. The material removal rate, surface finish and geometry all depends on proper control of lapping parameters (e.g. lapping speed, lapping pressure, lapping material and size and type, workpiece material and hardness, etc.). Furthermore, to attain the desired outcomes, it is imperative to select proper values for lapping process c...

Aral, Hacer Ela (2018-02-01)
İki boyutlu haritaların üç boyuttaki yaşamı ve deneyimleri aktarabilmesi için bürünmesi gereken anlatım zenginliği, “yaratıcı haritalama” kavramı üzerinden ele alınıyor. Yazar, “yaşanmış mekân”ı görselleştiren bu tekniğin sadece bir gösterim yöntemi değil, farklılaşan bir tasarım yaklaşımının aracı ve parçası olduğunu belirtiyor.
The cognitive aspects of model-making in architectural design
Gürsoy, Benay; Özkar, Mine; Department of Architecture (2010)
Considerable research has been done by various scholars to assess the significance of sketching in the early stages of the design process. However, sketching in design studies usually corresponds to drawing and the extensive research on the cognitive aspects of sketching does not always include three-dimensional sketching through physical and digital models produced in the early phases of design process. The aim of the presented research is to identify some characteristics of model-making that make it effec...
