Developing a methodology for finding network water losses using information technologies
Bektaş, Hayrettin Onur; Merzi, Nuri; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2010)
This study aims to develop an integrated methodology for finding water leaks in a water distribution network. The integrated methodology is formed from SCADA System, Customer Information System (CIS), and Geographic Information System. The methodology is based on forming district-metered areas (DMA) and sub-DMAs in pressure zones by isolation of the network. Leaking spots in the network are localised by step testing within the DMA. With leak noise loggers leaking spots are localized with an increased accura...
Developing a Validation Methodology for Educational Driving Simulators and a Case Study
Sancar, Hatice; Çağıltay, Kürşat; İşler, Veysi; Tamer, Gizem; Ozmen, Neslihan; Eryilmaz, Utkan (2009-07-24)
The aim of this study is to develop a methodology for validating driving simulators in terms of simulator usability. The methodology was used to validate a truck simulator designed for training truck drivers about economic fuel consumption. The participants were eight truck drivers. Interview and observation methods were used to gather data. The results of the study showed that drivers did not have difficulty to recognize the parts of the driving simulator. Also, they stated that driving the simulator was e...
Developing an investment decision methodology for helicopter systems related to technology factor and base price
Kara, Gözde; Tekinalp, Ozan; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, a decision methodology is generated using purchase price of a helicopter related to its geometry sizing and performance parameters during design and technology factors in order to compare these prices with investment costs. MATLAB® and Minitab® software were used for technical computing and methodology implementation. Firstly, helicopter base price formulation was verified by 21 helicopters. Then, technology parameters were defined which effect base price value. After that, total base price ...
Developing a strategic information system for construction companies
Güneş, Tanyeli; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
Problems and issues at project level have been the main concern of the construction management studies and construction professionals. Consequently, the long-term strategic issues at corporate level remained uncovered in construction companies. The complex and unique characteristics of the industrial context of construction also limited the adoption of strategic management concepts by the companies. Recently, however, changing business environment, increasing competition in construction arena and higher cli...
Developing a structural optimization software for efficient and practical optimum design of real-world steel structures
Korucu, Aytaç; Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2022-8-10)
Structural engineers have to design not only safe and practical buildings in a reasonably short period but also guarantee that the design generated should be cost-efficient. However, the design of real-world structures in a traditional way is an extremely laborious and time-consuming task, and final designs are often uneconomical. In this study, a computationally efficient, design-driven optimization technique (Guided Evolution Strategy Optimization, GES) is developed for the optimal design of real-world st...
