Modeling consciousness: a comparison of computational models
Gök, Selvi Elif; Sayan, Erdinç; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2009)
There has been a recent flurry of activity in consciousness research. Although an operational definition of consciousness has not yet been developed, philosophy has come to identify a set of features and aspects that are thought to be associated with the various elements of consciousness. On the other hand, there have been several recent attempts to develop computational models of consciousness that are claimed to capture or illustrate one or more aspects of consciousness. As a plausible substitute to evalu...
Modeling technology integration of teachers: the role of school climate and leadership
Yurttav, Hakkı; Kondakçı, Yaşar; Department of Educational Sciences (2020)
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between school climate, leadership and technology integration of teachers. The variables of the study were classified at three levels as school climate, leadership and technology integration. Within the scope of the study, teacher collaboration, trust in school principal and enabling school structure are the school climate based variables, and technology leadership is the leadership-based variable. The population of the study consists of teachers work...
Modeling guided heat pipe design methodology and experimental validation for flat grooved heat pipes
Saygan, Samet; Dursunkaya, Zafer; Çetin, Barbaros; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2021-2-24)
Heat pipes are commonly preferred thermal management devices due to their rapid heat transfer characteristics, small size and reliability. It is crucial to design heat pipes that accurately match the requirements of the system to be thermally managed. In the present study, a numerical design and diagnosis simulation tool for heat pipes is developed and verified for grooved heat pipes. A modular heat pipe experimental setup is designed and manufactured. In order to decide on the geometric parameters of the h...
Modeling heterogeneous internet of things systems using connectors in component oriented software engineering
Ünal, Selin; Dogru, Ali H.,; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
In this thesis a solution for modeling heterogeneous IoT applications in component oriented software engineering is provided by using software connectors. IoT is interconnected devices or humans in the means of internet which gains more importance day by day in different areas of the world. This kind of powerful and complex systems have challenges to overcome in nature. Each IoT system component has specific set of rules for communicating with the other components. In order to be able to communicate, compon...
Modeling highway projects: The need for Highway Information Modeling (HIM) guideline and information exchange
Ertaymaz, Uğurcan; Atasoy Özcan, Güzide (2019-06-01)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of the latest trends in the construction sector and utilized for modeling, reviewing and analyzing building projects for the last two decades with benefits including visualization, planning, and estimation. BIM provides a well-organized and streamlined approach for building projects; however, its application for highway projects has been scarce. Progressing requirements, increasing number of stakeholders, integrated design solutions, expanding model uses and rapid ...
