Methods for segmentation and classification of swallowing instants from the feeding sound of newborn infants
Koyuncu, Abdullah Onur; Çiloğlu, Tolga; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Statistics such as swallow frequency, the average time between rhythmic swallows and the maximum number of rhythmic swallows can be related to the feeding maturity of infants. Therefore, detecting swallow segments automatically from an acoustical feeding signal can be considered as a decision support mechanism for neonatologists. This thesis includes different approaches for the analysis of infant's feeding sounds and proposes two different pattern recognition methodologies, segmentation followed by classif...
Methods for location prediction of mobile phone users
Keleş, İlkcan; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
Due to the increasing use of mobile phones and their increasing capabilities, huge amount of usage and location data can be collected. Location prediction is an important task for mobile phone operators and smart city administrations to provide better services and recommendations. In this work, we have investigated several approaches for location prediction problem including clustering, classification and sequential pattern mining. We propose a sequence mining based approach for location prediction of mobil...
Methods for hybrid flow shop scheduling and a case study in an aerospace company
Özmen, Yiğitalp; Meral, Fatma Sedef; Department of Industrial Engineering (2019)
In this study, we address the scheduling problem in Hybrid Flow Shop (HFS) with makespan objective. Since this problem is known to be NP-hard and an HFS is a common environment in real-life manufacturing systems, several approximate solution approaches have been proposed in the literature. Hence, we resort to some of these such as MILP model, dispatching rules, Palmer, CDS, NEH, and Bottleneck Heuristic. Due to the complexity of HFS scheduling problem, MILP model provides only a near optimal solution by usi...
Methods for source localization from time difference of arrival measurements and their performance improvement in ill-conditioned cases
Çelenk, Nusret; Candan, Çağatay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
Estimating the location of a radiating source is crucial in a wide variety of fields, such as military applications, navigation systems and geophysics. In such fields, power and cost limitations, requirement of remaining undetected or the nature of the problem may necessitate passive localization techniques. One of such techniques is time difference of arrival (TDOA) based source localization. In this thesis, TDOA based closed-form source localization methods are studied. An extensive overview of the availa...
Methods for probing charging properties of polymeric materials using XPS
Sezen, Hikmet; Ertaş, Gülay; Suzer, Sefik (Elsevier BV, 2010-05-01)
Various thin polystyrene, PS, and poly(methyl methacrylate), PMMA and PS + PMMA blend films have been examined using the technique of recording X-ray photoelectron spectrum while the sample is subjected to +/- 10 V d.c, bias, and three different forms of (square-wave (SQW), sinusoidal (SIN) and triangular (TRG)), a.c. pulses. All films exhibit charging shifts as observed in the position of the corresponding C1s peak under d.c. bias. The a.c. pulses convert the single C1s peak to twinned peaks in the case of...
