Utilization of neural networks for simulation of vehicle induced flow in tunnel systems
Koç, Gencer; Albayrak, Kahraman; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
Air velocities induced by underground vehicles in complex metro systems are obtained using artificial neural networks. Complex tunnel shaft-systems with any number of tunnels and shafts and with most of the practically possible geometries encountered in underground structures can be simulated with the proposed method. A single neural network, of type feed-forward back propagation, with a single hidden layer is trained for modelling a single tunnel segment. Train and tunnel parameters that have influence on ...

Utilization of numerical weather prediction models for flood planning and operational studies in datascarce basins
Bozkurt, Okan Çağrı; Merzi, Nuri; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Civil Engineering (2020-9)
With the increasing rates of urbanization, floods have become a more critical problem day by day. Consequently, the perception arises that the flood control structures have become insufficient. Well-calibrated weather forecasting and hydrological models are important complementary tools to reduce the damage caused by floods. Such applications can yield results as useful as structural measures. In this study, the effects of the use of numerical weather forecasting and hydrological models on structural and no...

Bringing a high tech product to the market as soon as possible has never been so critical. Quality control of critical parts manufactured in large quantities is a problem to solve in many industries ranging from aerospace to automotive. If there are precision parts with very tight dimensional tolerances in the assembly, each and every dimension of every part must be measured. Otherwise parts with dimensions out of tolerances will create more trouble in the later steps of the assembly. Measuring the dimensio...
Use of Alternative Site Amplification Models in Simulations and Uncertainty Analysis
Muratoğlu, Gamze; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Karim Zadeh Naghshineh, Shaghayegh (null; 2020-12-16)
Ground motion simulations are used for earthquake engineering purposes as alternative to real records. The accuracy of the simulations is evaluated using misfit functions in terms of seismological and structural parameters computed for real and observed ground motions. Among all input parameters used in the simulations, site amplification factors carry significant uncertainty. Alternative approaches to estimate site amplifications include generic site amplifications based on quarter-wave-length technique, e...
