There is an increasing awareness of the added value that efficient design of experiments can provide to simulation studies. However, many practitioners lack the proper training required to design, execute and analyze a well-designed simulation experiment. In this study, we present the initial stages of a model-driven engineering based tool for managing simulation experiments. Underlying our approach are an experiment ontology and a feature model that capture the statistical design of experiments expert knowledge which users might be lacking. In its current state, the tool provides support for the design and execution of simple experiments. Using a web-based interface, the user is guided through an experiment design wizard that produces an experiment model that can be exported as an XML file containing the experiment's description. This XML can be used to synthesize scripts that can be run by a simulator and shared across different platforms.

A simulation study on marginalized transition random effects models for multivariate longitudinal binary data
Yalçınöz, Zerrin; İlk Dağ, Özlem; Department of Statistics (2008)
In this thesis, a simulation study is held and a statistical model is fitted to the simulated data. This data is assumed to be the satisfaction of the customers who withdraw their salary from a particular bank. It is a longitudinal data which has bivariate and binary response. It is assumed to be collected from 200 individuals at four different time points. In such data sets, two types of dependence -the dependence within subject measurements and the dependence between responses- are important and these are...
Development of a micro-fabrication process simulator for micro-electro-mechanical systems(mems)
Yıldırım, Alper; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
The aim of this study is to devise a computer simulation tool, which will speed-up the design of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems by providing the results of the micro-fabrication processes in advance. Anisotropic etching along with isotropic etching of silicon wafers are to be simulated in this environment. Similarly, additive processes like doping and material deposition could be simulated by means of a Cellular Automata based algorithm along with the use of OpenGL library functions. Equipped with an inte...
A Numerical Approach to Simulating Oxidation in Thermal Barrier Coatings
Saeidi, Farid; Gürses, Ercan; Aslan, Özgür (Elsevier, Elsevier, 2020-01-01)
Computational analysis and simulation of multi-physics phenomena taking place in coating systems is still a challenging task. Specifically, for ceramic coatings used as a system of protection for base materials against elevated temperatures, known as thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems, construction of continuum level models which can express coupled nonlinear phenomena has attracted great attention. Thermal stresses, oxidation, creep and numerous other mechanisms and phenomena makes it even harder to mod...
A comparison of orthogonal cutting data from experiments with three different finite element models
Bil, H; Kilic, SE; Tekkaya, AE (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-01)
The aim of this study is to compare various simulation models of orthogonal cutting process with each other as well as with the results of various experiments. Commercial implicit finite element codes MSC.Marc, Deform2D and the explicit code Thirdwave AdvantEdge have been used. In simulations, a rigid tool is advanced incrementally into the deformable workpiece which is remeshed whenever needed. In simulations with MSC.Marc and Thirdwave AdvantEdge, there is no separation criterion defined since chip format...
A new fuzzy-chaotic modelling proposal for medical diagnostic processes
Beyan, Timur; Baykal, Nazife; Department of Information Systems (2005)
Main reason of this study is to set forth the internal paradox of the basic approach of the artificial intelligence in the medical field to by discussing on the theoretical and application levels and to suggest solutions in theory and practice against that. In order to rule out the internal paradox in the medical decision support systematic, a new medical model is suggested and based on this, concepts such as disease, health, etiology, diagnosis and treatment are questioned. Meanwhile, with the current scie...
