This paper describes some of the issues that must be addressed in the use of Computational Aeroacoustics (CAA) for the solution of problems of practical importance. Solutions to some of these difficulties are also given. Previous studies have only emphasized the development of algorithms and their application to relatively simple model problems. The particular issues addressed in this paper include: the computational resources required for CAA calculations; grid selection; boundary treatments; equation and algorithm selection; artificial dissipation; Kirchhoff methods; and, post-processing. Examples of computational aeroacoustic calculations are given for ducted fans and jets. The need for three-dimensional, non-linear simulations and the feasibility of such solutions on high performance parallel computers is emphasized.

Improving reinforcement learning by using sequence trees
Girgin, Sertan; Polat, Faruk; Alhajj, Reda (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-12-01)
This paper proposes a novel approach to discover options in the form of stochastic conditionally terminating sequences; it shows how such sequences can be integrated into the reinforcement learning framework to improve the learning performance. The method utilizes stored histories of possible optimal policies and constructs a specialized tree structure during the learning process. The constructed tree facilitates the process of identifying frequently used action sequences together with states that are visit...
LinGraph: a graph-based automated planner for concurrent task planning based on linear logic
Kortik, Sitar; Saranlı, Uluç (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-10-01)
In this paper, we introduce an automated planner for deterministic, concurrent domains, formulated as a graph-based theorem prover for a propositional fragment of intuitionistic linear logic, relying on the previously established connection between intuitionistic linear logic and planning problems. The new graph-based theorem prover we introduce improves planning performance by reducing proof permutations that are irrelevant to planning problems particularly in the presence of large numbers of objects and a...
On output independence and complementariness in rank-based multiple classifier decision systems
Saranlı, Afşar (Elsevier BV, 2001-12-01)
This study presents a theoretical analysis of output independence and complementariness between classifiers in a rank-based multiple classifier decision system in the context of the partitioned observation space theory. To enable such an analysis, an information theoretic interpretation of a rank-based multiple classifier system is developed and basic concepts from information theory are applied to develop measures for output independence and complementariness. It is shown that output independence of classi...
On optimal resource allocation in phased array radar systems
Ircı, Ayhan; Saranlı, Afşar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, the problem of optimal resource allocation in real-time systems is studied. A recently proposed resource allocation approach called Q-RAM (Quality of Service based Resource Allocation Model) is investigated in detail. The goal of the Q-RAM based approaches is to minimize the execution speed in real-time systems while meeting resource constraints and maximizing total utility. Phased array radar system is an example of a system in which multiple tasks contend for multiple resources in order to...
Optimal Policy Synthesis from A Sequence of Goal Sets with An Application to Electric Distribution System Restoration
Isik, Ilker; Arpalı, Onur Yigit; Aydın Göl, Ebru (2021-01-01)
Motivated by the post-disaster distribution system restoration problem, in this paper, we study the problem of synthesizing the optimal policy for a Markov Decision Process (MDP) from a sequence of goal sets. For each goal set, our aim is to both maximize the probability to reach and minimize the expected time to reach the goal set. The order of the goal sets represents their priority. In particular, our aim is to generate a policy that is optimal with respect to the first goal set, and it is optimal with r...
