3D skeleton transfer for meshes and clouds

We present a curve-skeleton extraction method in the form of curve-skeleton transfer from the source shape to the target. The shapes we deal with need to be in correspondence. They are discretized as meshes embedded in 3D and are not necessarily watertight. They can even be in arbitrary topology, and furthermore be disconnected point clouds. Our method associates the source skeleton with the source shape and computes the optimal rigid transformations towards the corresponding query shape points. This transformation for each source skeleton point is followed by a post-processing operation. Fixed skeleton connectivity maintained throughout the transfer guarantees that the resulting skeleton is as complex as the source skeleton, e.g., no redundant branches and complicated joint hierarchies. The performance and versatility of our method as well as its advantages over a direct skeleton extraction method are demonstrated.


3D indirect shape retrieval based on hand interaction
Irmak, Erdem Can; Sahillioğlu, Yusuf (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-01-01)
In this work, we present a novel 3D indirect shape analysis method which successfully retrieves 3D shapes based on hand-object interaction. To this end, the human hand information is first transferred to the virtual environment by the Leap Motion controller. Position-, angle- and intersection-based novel features of the hand and fingers are used for this part. In the guidance of these features that define the way humans grab objects, a support vector machine (SVM) classifier is trained. Experiments validate...
Modeling of inelastic behavior of curved members with a mixed formulation beam element
Sarıtaş, Afşin (Elsevier BV, 2009-04-01)
The curved beam element in this paper is based on Hu-Washizu variational principle. The nonlinear response of the element arises from the integration of stress-strain relations over several control sections along the element length. The finite element approximation for the beam uses shape functions for stress resultants that satisfy equilibrium and discontinuous strains along the beam. No approximation for the beam displacement field is necessary in the formulation. The proposed element is free from membran...
Non-destructive recognition of dielectric coated conducting objects by using WD type time-frequency transformation and PCA-based fusion
Sayan, Gönül (Wiley, 2013-07-01)
This article demonstrates the applications of a non-destructive electromagnetic target recognition method, called Wigner distribution-principal component analysis (WD-PCA) method, to dielectric coated conducting spheres. These spheres are chosen to be highly similar having the same overall size but slightly different permittivity and thickness values in coating layers. Four different classifiers are simulated by using the WD-PCA method for varying sizes of object libraries under different noise conditions. ...
Thermal stability of benzorods: Molecular-dynamics simulations
Malcıoğlu, Osman Barış (Elsevier BV, 2005-12-01)
Thermal stability of benzorods 2C6-20C6, which are obtained by stacking n (n=2-20) dehydrogenated benzene, have been investigated by molecular-dynamics simulations. It has been found that these structures assume a geometrical form depending on the number of dehydrogenated benzene layers, and they are stable under heat treatment up to elevated temperatures with a dependence on length.
Discretization of Parametrizable Signal Manifolds
Vural, Elif (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-12-01)
Transformation-invariant analysis of signals often requires the computation of the distance from a test pattern to a transformation manifold. In particular, the estimation of the distances between a transformed query signal and several transformation manifolds representing different classes provides essential information for the classification of the signal. In many applications, the computation of the exact distance to the manifold is costly, whereas an efficient practical solution is the approximation of ...
