Application of volume of fluid (VOF) method in conjunction with shear stress transport (SST) k-ω turbulence closure model to investigate spillway flow
Bayrakdar, Fatih; Tokyay Sinha, Talia Ekin; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
Hydraulic engineers often require to assess the reasons and consequences of interaction of flow with structures. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) became a useful tool in this regard in recent years as it provides ample amount of information both on flow and its interaction with its surrounding. To this end, flows over a spillway are investigated. The computational domain for the flow over a spillway is based on the study by Dargahi (2006). Numerical results are compared to previous experimental ones. In t...
Application of schema matching methods to semantic web service discovery
Karagöz, Funda; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
The Web turns out to be a collection of services that interoperate through the Internet. As the number of services increase, it is getting more and more diffucult for users to find, filter and integrate these services depending on their requirements. Automatic techniques are being developed to fulfill these tasks. The first step toward automatic composition is the discovery of services needed. UDDI which is one of the accepted web standards, provides a registry of web services. However representation capabi...
Application of genetic algorithms to calibration and verification of QUAL2E
Göktaş, Recep Kaya; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Department of Environmental Engineering (2004)
The objective of this study is to develop a calibration and verification tool for the QUAL2E Model by using Genetic Algorithms. In the developed optimization model, an objective function that is formulated on the basis of the sum-of-least squares approach aiming at minimizing the difference between the observed and simulated quantities was used. In order to perform simultaneous calibration and verification, verification of the calibrated results was treated as a constraint and inserted into the objective fu...

Topic modeling is a widely used technique to extract latent topics from large document collections. One of the most remarkable uses of it is its application to scientific fields. If topic modeling is applied to all articles published in a specific scientific field, it provides an overall view of topics and trends for the time period under consideration. If it is applied to a single conference or journal, it reveals differences from global trends. The most popular method used for topic modeling is Latent Dir...
