Significant progress has been made over the last two decades in the characterisation of aggregate shape using automated image analysis and processing methods. Aggregate shape characteristics have been quantified using three distinct shape parameters, namely the aggregate form, angularity and surface texture. Several mathematical procedures have been developed to quantify these parameters. For practical reasons, most of these procedures were limited to two-dimensional (2D) and utilised 2D aggregate images. This paper investigates the ability of some of the most widely used 2D aggregate form and angularity indices to describe the shape of five different types of aggregates (natural gravel, basalt, granite, diabase and slate). In addition, it provides a comparison between 2D and three-dimensional (3D) aggregate shape indices developed based on fitting the 3D aggregate shape using spherical harmonic functions.


Road network extraction from high-resolution multi spectral satellite images
Karaman, Ersin; Çetin, Yasemin; Department of Information Systems (2012)
In this thesis, an automatic road extraction algorithm for multi-spectral images is developed. The developed model extracts elongated structures from images by using edge detection, segmentation and clustering techniques. The study also extracts non-road regions like vegetative fields, bare soils and water bodies to obtain more accurate road map. The model is constructed in a modular approach that aims to extract roads with different characteristics. Each module output is combined to create a road score map...

Several algorithms have been proposed for image reconstruction in MREIT. These algorithms reconstruct conductivity distribution either directly from magnetic flux density measurements or from reconstructed current density distribution. In this study, performance of all major algorithms are evaluated and compared on a common platform, in terms of their reconstruction error, reconstruction time, perceptual image quality, immunity against measurement noise, required electrode size. J-Substitution (JS) and Hybr...
Efficient algorithms for convolutional inverse problems in multidimensional imaging
Doğan, Didem; Öktem, Figen S.; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
Computational imaging is the process of indirectly forming images from measurements using image reconstruction algorithms that solve inverse problems. In many inverse problems in multidimensional imaging such as spectral and depth imaging, the measurements are in the form of superimposed convolutions related to the unknown image. In this thesis, we first provide a general formulation for these problems named as convolutional inverse problems, and then develop fast and efficient image reconstruction algorith...
Investigation of effect of design and operating parameters on acoustophoretic particle separation via 3D device-level simulations
Sahin, Mehmet Akif; ÇETİN, BARBAROS; Özer, Mehmet Bülent (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-12-16)
In the present study, a 3D device-level numerical model is implemented via finite element method to assess the effects of design and operating parameters on the separation performance of a microscale acoustofluidic device. Elastodynamic equations together with electromechanical coupling at the piezoelectric actuators for the stress field within the solid parts, Helmholtz equation for the acoustic field within fluid, and Navier-Stokes equations for the fluid flow are coupled for the simulations. Once the zer...
Joint source-channel coding for error resilient transmission of static 3D models
Bici, Mehmet Oguz; Norkin, Andrey; Akar, Gözde (2012-01-01)
In this paper, performance analysis of joint source-channel coding techniques for error-resilient transmission of three dimensional (3D) models are presented. In particular, packet based transmission scenarios are analyzed. The packet loss resilient methods are classified into two groups according to progressive compression schemes employed: Compressed Progressive Meshes (CPM) based methods and wavelet based methods. In the first group, layers of CPM algorithm are protected unequally by Forward Error Correc...
