In this study, a new reconstruction approach is proposed for the line segments that are nearly-aligned(<= 10 degrees) with the epipolar line. The method manipulates the redundancy inherent in line pair-relations to generate artificial 3D point entities and utilize those entities during the estimation process to improve the height values of the reconstructed line segments. The best point entities for the reconstruction are selected based on a newly proposed weight function. To test the performance of the proposed approach, we selected three test patches over a built up area of the city of Vaihingen-Germany. Based on the results, the proposed approach produced highly promising reconstruction results for the line segments that are nearly-aligned with the epipolar line.

In this study, a new 3D reconstruction approach for line segments from stereo images is proposed which covers the case that the image lines are nearly-aligned (<= 10 degrees) with the epipolar line. The method manipulates the redundancy inherent in line pair-relations to generate artificial 3D points and utilizes those entities during the estimation process to improve the reconstruction of the line segments. The best points for the reconstruction are selected based on a newly proposed weight function. To te...
Uniform and Non-Uniform V-shaped Arrays for 2-D DOA Estimation
Filik, Tansu; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Yasar, T. Kaya (2008-04-22)
In this study, a new method for optimum design of uniform and non-uniform V-shaped arrays is presented for azimuth and elevation angle estimation. The proposed design method finds an optimum angle between the linear sub-arrays of the V-array by using the Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) where statistical coupling effect between azimuth and elevation angle estimation is considered This method can be used to obtain directional and isotropic angle performances for uniform and non-uniform V-arrays. For non-uniform isotro...
In-Strip Matching and Reconstruction of Line Segments from UHR Aerial Image Triplets
Ok, Ali Ozgun; Wegner, Jan Dirk; Heipke, Christian; Rottensteiner, Franz; Soergel, Uwe; Toprak, Vedat (2011-10-07)
In this study, we propose a new line matching and reconstruction methodology for aerial image triplets that are acquired within a single strip. The newly developed stereo reconstruction approach gives us better line predictions in the third image which in turn helps to improve the performance of the matching. The redundancy information generated in each stereo match gives us ability to reduce the number of false matches while preserving high levels of matching completeness. The approach is tested over four ...
Comprehensive evaluation of equivalent linear analysis method for seismic-isolated structures represented by sdof systems
Dicleli, Murat (2007-08-01)
In this study, the equivalent linear (EL) analysis procedure used in the design of seismic-isolated structures is evaluated. The effect of several parameters such as the intensity and frequency characteristics of the ground motion, isolator properties and the structure mass are considered in the evaluation. First, the EL analysis procedure is evaluated using harmonic ground motions with various excitation periods and a suite of 15 seismic ground motions with various frequency characteristics. Then, the effe...
Improved effective damping equation for equivalent linear analysis of seismic-isolated bridges
Dicleli, Murat (SAGE Publications, 2006-02-01)
In this study, an improved effective damping (ED) equation is proposed to obtain more reasonable estimates of the actual nonlinear response of seismic-isolated bridges (SIB) using equivalent linear (EL) analysis procedure. For this purpose, first the EL analysis results using AASHTO's ED equation is evaluated using harmonic and seismic ground motions. The effect of several parameters such as substructure stiffness, isolator properties, and the intensity and frequency characteristics of the ground motion are...
