Multi objective conceptual design optimization of an agricultural aerial robot (AAR)
Özdemir, Segah; Tekinalp, Ozan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2005)
Multiple Cooling Multi Objective Simulated Annealing algorithm has been combined with a conceptual design code written by the author to carry out a multi objective design optimization of an Agricultural Aerial Robot. Both the single and the multi objective optimization problems are solved. The performance figures of merits for different aircraft configurations are compared. In this thesis the potential of optimization as a powerful design tool to the aerospace problems is demonstrated.
Numerical simulation of the Çınarcık dam failure on the Orhaneli River
Bağ, Fırat; Bozkuş, Zafer; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
This thesis analyzes the probable outcome of the fictitious failure of a dam under a set of pre-defined scenarios, within the framework of a case study, the case subject being the Cinarcik Dam located within Bursa Province of Turkey. The failure of the dam is not analyzed neither structural nor hydraulic-wise but is assumed to be triggered when certain critical criteria are exceeded. Hence, the analyses focus on the aftermath of the failure and strive to anticipate the level of inundation downstream of the ...
Error analysis for the numerical evaluation of the diagonal forms of the scalar spherical addition theorem
Koc, S; Song, JM; Chew, WC (Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 1999-04-29)
The numerical solution of wave scattering from large objects or from a large cluster of scatterers requires excessive computational resources and it becomes necessary to use approximate-but fast-methods such as the fast multipole method; however, since these methods are only approximate, it is important to have an estimate for the error introduced in such calculations. An analysis of the error for the fast multipole method is presented and estimates for truncation and numerical integration errors are obtain...
Computation and analysis of spectra of large undirected networks
Erdem, Özge; Karasözen, Bülent; Jost, Jürgen; Department of Scientific Computing (2010)
Many interacting complex systems in biology, in physics, in technology and social systems, can be represented in a form of large networks. These large networks are mathematically represented by graphs. A graph is represented usually by the adjacency or the Laplacian matrix. Important features of the underlying structure and dynamics of them can be extracted from the analysis of the spectrum of the graphs. Spectral analysis of the so called normalized Laplacian of large networks became popular in the recent ...
Computation and analysis of spectra of large networks with directed graphs
Sarıaydın, Ayşe; Karasözen, Bülent; Jost, Jürgen; Department of Scientific Computing (2010)
Analysis of large networks in biology, science, technology and social systems have become very popular recently. These networks are mathematically represented as graphs. The task is then to extract relevant qualitative information about the empirical networks from the analysis of these graphs. It was found that a graph can be conveniently represented by the spectrum of a suitable difference operator, the normalized graph Laplacian, which underlies diffusions and random walks on graphs. When applied to large...
