The system dynamics approach is a holistic way of solving problems in real-time scenarios. This is a powerful methodology and computer simulation modeling technique for framing, analyzing, and discussing complex issues and problems. System dynamics modeling and simulation is often the background of a systemic thinking approach and has become a management and organizational development paradigm. This paper proposes a system dynamics approach for study the importance of infrastructure facilities on quality of primary education system in developing nations. The model is proposed to be built using the Cross Impact Analysis (CIA) method of relating entities and attributes relevant to the primary education system in any given community. We offer a survey to build the cross-impact correlation matrix and, hence, to better understand the primary education system and importance of infrastructural facilities on quality of primary education. The resulting model enables us to predict the effects of infrastructural facilities on the access of primary education by the community. This may support policy makers to take more effective actions in campaigns.

The system dynamics approach is a holistic way of solving problems in realtime scenarios. This is a powerful methodology and computer simulation modeling technique for framing, analyzing, and discussing complex issues and problems. System dynamics modeling and simulation is often the background of a systemic thinking approach and has become a management and organizational development paradigm. In this paper, we present our experiences and thoughts on developing system thinking models to understand the impor...
A unifying grid approach for solving potential flows applicable to structured and unstructured grid configurations
Cete, A. Ruhsen; Yuekselen, M. Adil; Kaynak, Uenver (Elsevier BV, 2008-01-01)
In this study, an efficient numerical method is proposed for unifying the structured and unstructured grid approaches for solving the potential flows. The new method, named as the "alternating cell directions implicit - ACDI", solves for the structured and unstructured grid configurations equally well. The new method in effect applies a line implicit method similar to the Line Gauss Seidel scheme for complex unstructured grids including mixed type quadrilateral and triangle cells. To this end, designated al...
A comparison of predator teams with distinct genetic similarity levels in single prey hunting problem
Yalçın, Çağrı; Şehitoğlu, Onur Tolga; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
In the domain of the complex control problems for agents, neuroevolution, i.e. artificial evolution of neural networks, methods have been continuously shown to offer high performance solutions which may be unpredictable by external controller design. Recent studies have proved that these methods can also be successfully applied for cooperative multi-agent systems to evolve the desired team behavior. For a given task which may benefit from both cooperation and behavioral specialization, the genetic diversity...
Implicit monolithic parallel solution algorithm for seismic analysis of dam-reservoir systems
Özmen, Semih; Kurç, Özgür; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
This research mainly focuses on developing a computationally scalable and efficient solution algorithm that can handle linear dynamic analysis of dam-reservoir interaction problem. Lagrangian fluid finite elements are utilized and compressibility and viscosity of the fluid are taken into consideration during the reservoir modeling. In order to provide computational scalability and efficiency, domain decomposition methods implemented with parallel computing approaches such as Finite Element Tearing and Inter...
