This paper presents a hybrid method based on proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) with a trained radial basis function (RBF) network, on direct simulation monte carlo (DSMC) solutions for aerothermodynamic front surface optimization of Stardust re-entry. Gaussian and multiquadric RBFs are implemented for comparison, and multiquadric functions are chosen due to their insensitivity to diverse shape parameters. Cubic uniform B-spline curves are used innovatively for parameterization of the geometry change, instead of curve fitting the geometry itself. This makes possible to reduce the number of design variables. Gradient based optimization strategy is implemented by regarding the distributions of pressure, shear stress and heat flux along the surface of the geometries. G.A. Bird’s two dimensional axisymmetric DSMC solver[1]is used as the physics solver, and 11 species air model are chosen with 41 chemical reactions according to atmospheric conditions of the re-entry. Different geometries are obtained via deviating the design variables arbitrarily to form a snapshot pool. In this manner, the approximation success of the POD-RBF methodology is tested on highly nonlinear flow conditions with arbitrarily chosen design of experiment. Finally, the optimized geometries are simulated via DSMC code and the solutions are compared with the solutions of POD-RBF network. Method lowered the optimization time extraordinarily and provided satisfactory results

Reference-plane-invariant waveguide method for electromagnetic characterization of bi-axial bianisotropic metamaterials
HASAR, UĞUR CEM; Yildiz, Gul; BUTE, MUSA; Muratoğlu, Abdurrahim (2018-11-01)
In this paper, we investigate a reference-plane invariant (RPI) method for electromagnetic property extraction of bi-axial bianisotropic metamaterial (MM) slabs. In order to obtain unique properties, we applied the frequency varying technique in order to determine the location of the slab within its cell. For validation of the proposed method, we first simulated and then measured scattering parameters of a MM slab constructed by split-ring-resonators, next extracted its electromagnetic properties, and final...
Intrusive and data-driven reduced order modelling of the rotating thermal shallow water equation
Yıldız, Süleyman; Karasözen, Bülent; Uzunca, Murat (2022-05-15)
In this paper, we investigate projection-based intrusive and data-driven model order reduction in numerical simulation of rotating thermal shallow water equation (RTSWE) in parametric and non-parametric form. Discretization of the RTSWE in space with centered finite differences leads to Hamiltonian system of ordinary differential equations with linear and quadratic terms. The full-order model (FOM) is obtained by applying linearly implicit Kahan's method in time. Applying proper orthogonal decomposition wit...
Investigation of tightly coupled arrays for wideband applications
Arda, Kaan; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020-10)
This thesis aims to provide in depth research on tightly coupled dipole arrays to be used in ultrawideband apertures applications. First, operation principles of tightly coupled dipole arrays are investigated. Starting from the Wheeler’s current sheet aperture concept, some calculations on bandwidth and impedance concepts are conducted. B.A. Munk’s addition to the concept, use of capacitive elements between adjacent dipoles, are introduced. Array unit cell is modeled using equivalent circuit approach,...
