Approximate analysis and condition assesment of reinforced concrete t-beam bridges using artificial neural networks
Dumlupınar, Taha; Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
In recent years, artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been employed for estimation and prediction purposes in many areas of civil/structural engineering. In this thesis, multilayered feedforward backpropagation algorithm is used for the approximate analysis and calibration of RC T-beam bridges and modeling of bridge ratings of these bridges. Currently bridges are analyzed using a standard FEM program. However, when a large population of bridges is concerned, such as the one considered in this project (Pen...
Approximate analytical description of apparent horizons for initial data with momentum and spin
Altas, Emel; Tekin, Bayram (2021-04-21)
We construct analytical initial data for a slowly moving and rotating black hole for generic orientations of the linear momentum and the spin. We solve the Hamiltonian constraint approximately and work out the properties of the apparent horizon and show the dependence of its shape on the angle between the spin and the linear momentum. In particular, a dimple, whose location depends on the mentioned angle, arises on the two-sphere geometry of the apparent horizon. We exclusively work in the case of conformal...

Numerical modelling of out-of-seam dilution in longwall retreat mining
SAEEDI, G.; SHAHRIAR, K.; REZAI, B.; Karpuz, Celal (Elsevier BV, 2010-06-01)
Longwall mining is a common mining method in Iran that is often affected by out-of-seam dilution (OSD). The field investigations performed in Tabas coal mine show that OSD often occurs due to roof falls in front of the face area before support setting and also removing some floor material. The increase in unsupported roof span above the shearer may cause difficulty in controlling the roof and consequently increases dilution of the run of mine (ROM) coal. The paper presents the results of a study on some dom...
Approximate Bayesian Smoothing with Unknown Process and Measurement Noise Covariances
Ardeshiri, Tohid; Özkan, Emre; Orguner, Umut; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2015-12-01)
We present an adaptive smoother for linear state-space models with unknown process and measurement noise covariances. The proposed method utilizes the variational Bayes technique to perform approximate inference. The resulting smoother is computationally efficient, easy to implement, and can be applied to high dimensional linear systems. The performance of the algorithm is illustrated on a target tracking example.
