A novel phase-averaging method based on vortical structure correlation

In this paper we investigate a new method for phase averaging based on the correlation of vortical structures in a ow eld. The method requires the presence of a large scale precessing structure in the ow, such as for instance the precessing vortex core found in swirling ows. The transformation from time to phase is done by correlation of the instantaneous Q elds to determine the phase shift between two instants of the precession. Once the phase shift is determined, the dierent owelds are rotated back to the zero phase reference and the data are ensemble averaged. The method is tested on tomographic PIV measurements of an annular jet ow and it is shown that it is able to extrude the large scale structures found in turbulent swirling jet flows.

A Radar Target Recognition Method with MUSIC Algorithm: Application to Aircraft Targets with Measured Scattered Data
Secmen, M.; Turhan-Sayan, G.; Sayan, Gönül (2008-05-30)
This paper demonstrates the usefulness of an ultra wideband target recognition method in the case of realistic and complicated target geometries at resonance region. The method utilizes the MUSIC algorithm to extract the natural resonance-related scattering features of targets. The resulting features give the power distribution maps of targets. These maps are called as fused MUSIC spectrum matrices and used as the main target recognition feature in the method. The fusion process is needed to reduce the aspe...
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...
A novel method for electromagnetic target classification using the music algorithm: Applied to small-scale aircraft targets
Secmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül (2006-01-01)
This paper introduces a novel target classification method based on the extraction of target features by using natural response related late-time electromagnetic scattered field data. In the feature extraction stage, the use of multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm together with a simple but effective feature fusion approach leads to a significant reduction in the sensitivity of classification accuracy to both aspect angle variations and the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) levels of the data. Another...
A New Approach to Automatic Road Extraction from Satellite Images using Boosted Classifiers
In this study, a supervised method for automatic road detection based on spectral indices and structural properties is proposed. The need of generalizing the spectral features for the images captured by different kinds of devices is investigated. Mean-shift segmentation algorithm is employed to partition the input multi-spectral image in addition to k-means which is used as a complementary method for structural feature generation. Adaboost learning algorithm is utilized with extracted features to distinguis...
