Dynamics of embedded structures in solid medium in the presence of cavitation

Karaesmen, Engin

This paper presents a probabilistic approach for predicting the existence of cavitation in a solid medium. The cavitation is assumed to be generated by the diffraction of a propogating random stress wave from an embedded structure. The analysis is based on one dimensional linear plane wave approximation and the stress wave is assumed to be stationary Gaussian, white random process. For the embedded structure lumped mass model approximation is used. Transitional probability is obtained by Caughy's method and relevant characteristics of the cavitation process such as mean square displacement for cavitation and expected time for crossing the displacement at cavitation are derived. Comparison of the cavitation behaviour is made between the existing deterministic solutions in the literature and the present probabilistic approach via numerical results. The principal conclusion of the study is that the phenomenon of cavitation must be at least explored by simple mathematical models in the design and analysis phases of embedded structures subjected to seismic and/or explosive loads.


Dynamics of Hopfield-Type Neural Networks with Modulo Periodic Unpredictable Synaptic Connections, Rates and Inputs
Akhmet, Marat; Tleubergenova, Madina; Zhamanshin, Akylbek (2022-11-01)
In this paper, we rigorously prove that unpredictable oscillations take place in the dynamics of Hopfield-type neural networks (HNNs) when synaptic connections, rates and external inputs are modulo periodic unpredictable. The synaptic connections, rates and inputs are synchronized to obtain the convergence of outputs on the compact subsets of the real axis. The existence, uniqueness, and exponential stability of such motions are discussed. The method of included intervals and the contraction mapping princip...
Analysis of an inventory system under supply uncertainty
Gullu, R; Onol, E; Erkip, N (Elsevier BV, 1999-03-20)
In this paper, we analyze a periodic review, single-item inventory model under supply uncertainty. The objective is to minimize expected holding and backorder costs over a finite planning horizon under the supply constraints. The uncertainty in supply is modeled using a three-point probability mass function. The supply is either completely available, partially available, or the supply is unavailable. Machine breakdowns, shortages in the capacity of the supplier, strikes, etc., are possible causes of uncerta...
Effects of Non-Abelian Magnetic Fields on Pair Production in Flat and Curved Spaces
Özcan, Berk; Kürkçüoğlu, Seçkin; Department of Physics (2021-9)
Our objective in this thesis is to compute the pair production rates for both bosons and fermions under the influence of non-abelian gauge fields on the manifolds $\mathbb{R}^{3,1} \equiv \mathbb{R}^2 \times \mathbb{R}^{1,1}$ and $S^2 \times \mathbb{R}^{1,1}$. We will compare the pair production rates of the spherical cases with the flat ones, and also compare the non-abelian cases with the abelian ones to see effects of both curvature and non-abelian field strength on the pair production. We first review t...
Properties of excited B-c states in QCD
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Bilmiş, Selçuk (Elsevier BV, 2019-10-01)
The mass and leptonic decay constants of recently observed two new excited B-c states at LHC are studied within the QCD sum rules. Considering the contributions of the ground and radially excited states, the mass and residues of the excited states of pseudoscalar and vector mesons are calculated in the framework of two different approaches of the QCD sum rules, namely, linear combinations of the corresponding sum rules and its derivatives as well as QCD sum rules with the incorporation of the least square f...
An online sequential algorithm for the estimation of transition probabilities forjump Markov linear systems
Orguner, Umut (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01)
This paper describes a new method to estimate the transition probabilities associated with a jump Markov linear system. The new algorithm uses stochastic approximation type recursions to minimize the Kullback-Leibler divergence between the likelihood function of the transition probabilities and the true likelihood function. Since the calculation of the likelihood function of the transition probabilities is impossible, an incomplete data paradigm, which has been previously applied to a similar problem for hi...
