There are often concerns about the reliability of simulation results due to improper design of experiments, limited support in the execution and analysis of experiments, and lack of integrated computational frameworks for model learning through simulation experiments. Such issues result in flawed analysis as well as misdirected human and computational effort. We put forward a methodological basis, which aims to (1) explore the utility of viewing models as adaptive agents that mediate among domain theories, data, requirements, principles, and analogies, (2) underline the role of cognitive assistance for model discovery, experimentation, and evidence evaluation so as to differentiate between competing models and to attain a balance between model exploration and exploitation, and (3) examine strategies for explanatory justification of model assumptions via cognitive models that explicate coherence judgments.

Modeling and simulation of a maneuvering ship
Pakkan, Sinan; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
This thesis documents the studies conducted in deriving a mathematical model representing the dynamics of a maneuvering ship to be implemented as part of an interactive real-time simulation system, as well as the details and results of the implementation process itself. Different effects on the dynamics of ship motions are discussed separately, meaning that the effects are considered to be applied to the system one at a time and they are included in the model simply by the principle of superposition. The mo...
Adapted Infinite Kernel Learning by Multi-Local Algorithm
Akyuz, Sureyya Ozogur; Ustunkar, Gurkan; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2016-05-01)
The interplay of machine learning (ML) and optimization methods is an emerging field of artificial intelligence. Both ML and optimization are concerned with modeling of systems related to real-world problems. Parameter selection for classification models is an important task for ML algorithms. In statistical learning theory, cross-validation (CV) which is the most well-known model selection method can be very time consuming for large data sets. One of the recent model selection techniques developed for supp...
Model-driven engineering framework for replicable simulation experiments
Dayıbaş, Orçu; Oğuztüzün, Halil.; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
Simulation experiments allow the user to capture the specific variability of multiple interdependent processes. The use of simulation models is widely accepted by practitioners from diverse areas of applied sciences. Therefore, simulation experiments are an essential part of computational science and engineering. Nevertheless, simulations are rarely replicated due to reuse and maintenance challenges related to models and data. In this respect, it is proposed that some crucial and labor intensive parts of th...
Prediction of Nonlinear Drift Demands for Buildings with Recurrent Neural Networks
Kocamaz, Korhan; Binici, Barış; Tuncay, Kağan (2021-09-08)
Application of deep learning algorithms to the problems of structural engineering is an emerging research field. Inthis study, a deep learning algorithm, namely recurrent neural network (RNN), is applied to tackle a problemrelated to the assessment of reinforced concrete buildings. Inter-storey drift ratio profile of a structure is a quiteimportant parameter while conducting assessment procedures. In general, procedures require a series of timeconsuming nonlinear dynamic analysis. In this study, an extensiv...
Modelling and predicting binding affinity of PCP-like compounds using machine learning methods
Erdaş, Özlem; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Machine learning methods have been promising tools in science and engineering fields. The use of these methods in chemistry and drug design has advanced after 1990s. In this study, molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) surfaces of PCP-like compounds are modelled and visualized in order to extract features which will be used in predicting binding affinity. In modelling, Cartesian coordinates of MEP surface points are mapped onto a spherical self-organizing map. Resulting maps are visualized by using values...
