Yildizlar, B.
Eyi, Sinan
The aim of this study is to implement Newton-GMRES method into supersonic flows as an alternative to Newton method which is a reliable and efficient solver. The flow analysis is based on the three dimensional Euler equations. The objective of this study is compare the performances of Newton and Newton-GMRES methods in a 3-D nozzle design. The Jacobian matrix needed for Newton method is evaluated analytically. Newton-GMRES method is a matrix free solution technique hence it does not require the Jacobian matrix evaluation. A gradient based method is used for numerical optimization. Sensitivities are evaluated by using adjoint method. Design optimization is conducted by Newton's method.


Convergence Error and Higher-Order Sensitivity Estimations
Eyi, Sinan (2012-10-01)
The aim of this study is to improve the accuracy of the finite-difference sensitivities of differential equations solved by iterative methods. New methods are proposed to estimate the convergence error and higher-order sensitivities. The convergence error estimation method is based on the eigenvalue analysis of linear systems, but it can also be used for nonlinear systems. The higher-order sensitivities are calculated by differentiating the approximately constructed differential equation with respect to the...
Comparison of Kalman filter and Bayesian-MAP approaches in the spatio-temporal solution of the inverse electrocardiography Ters elektrokardiyografinin zaman-uzamsal çözümünde Kalman filtre ve Bayes-MAP yöntemlerinin karşilaştirilmasi
Aydin, Ümit; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim (2010-07-15)
In this study some of the spatial and spatio-temporal methods for the solution of the inverse problem of electrocardiography (ECG) are compared with each other. Comparisons are also made for the cases with geometric errors, where the location of the heart is shifted for 10mm and the size of the heart is reduced by 5%. The compared methods are the Kalman filter and Bayesian maximum a posteriori estimation (MAP). Two different Bayesian-MAP algorithms are used. While one uses only spatial information the other...

Özdemir, Enver Doruk; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
The aim of this study is to simulate the unsteady flow around rotating or oscillating airfoils. This will help to understand the rotor aerodynamics, which is essential in turbines and propellers. In this study, a pre-existing Euler solver with finite volume method that is developed in the Mechanical Engineering Department of Middle East Technical University (METU) is improved. This structured pre-existing code was developed for 2-D internal flows with Lax-Wendroff scheme. The improvement consist of firstly,...
Nonlinear Structural Coupling: Experimental Application
Kalaycioglu, Taner; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (2014-02-06)
In this work, the nonlinear structural modification/coupling technique proposed recently by the authors is applied to a test system in order to study the applicability of the method to real structures. The technique is based on calculating the frequency response functions of a modified system from those of the original system and the dynamic stiffness matrix of the nonlinear modifying part. The modification can also be in the form of coupling a nonlinear system to the original system. The test system used i...
Nonlinear guidance and control of leader-follower UAV formations
Kumbasar, Sarper; Tekinalp, Ozan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
In this thesis work, two nonlinear guidance methods are proposed to control the autonomous formation flight: State Dependent Riccati Equation method and Lyapunov function method. Leader-Follower formation scheme is chosen and a pair of fighter aircrafts are used in simulations. One of them is chosen as the leader and it carries out the commanded maneuvers. Other aircraft is the follower and it follows the leader keeping the prescribed formation structure. Both aircraft models are nonlinear. In the inner loo...
