Digital image correlation (DIC) method has been used in many disciplines to measure displacement and strain without any contact to the specimen. Moreover, it is usually a cheaper method when compared with other measurement techniques. In this technique, a single or stereo digital cameras are needed for the 2D and 3D measurements, respectively. Images used for correlation are generally acquired from videos shot by high speed cameras. Accordingly, their resolutions and measurement accuracies are not sufficient for the small displacement on larger structures. In this study, a simply supported reinforced concrete beam was tested by applying a point force at the mid-span. One side surface of the beam was speckled randomly and 2D measurement method was employed. Images of the speckled surface were captured by a 24 MP DSLR camera as photos with a specified time interval instead of shooting video. Then, image averaging process was performed to minimize the noise on them before the correlation process. Classical displacement measurement instruments, LVDTs, were also located on the beam to verify the method's findings. Firstly, the beam was forced in its elastic limit, then it was loaded until it failed. Displacement measurements were compared to each other for both cases. In the permanent deformation test, the cracking patterns were also observed by utilizing DIC method. Finally, for this study, the performance of the 2D DIC measurement technique for small deformations was verified.

In order to measure in vivo resistivity of tissues in the thorax, the possibility of combining anatomical data extracted from high-resolution images with multiple-electrode impedance measurements, a priori knowledge of the range of tissue resistivities, and a priori data on the instrumentation noise is assessed in this study. A statistically constrained minimum-mean-square error estimator (MIMSEE) that minimizes the effects of linearization errors and instrumentation noise is developed and compared to the c...
Theoretical limits and safety considerations for magneto-acousto electrical tomography
Ghalichi, Elyar; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
In this study, the performance of Magneto-Acousto-Electrical Tomography (MAET) method is investigated quantitatively by considering interrelations between its sensitivity, resolution and conductivity contrast. An analytical solution for the forward problem of MAET is derived for two-dimensional (2D) concentric bodies by Separation of Variables Method. The electric potential and the acoustic pressure are separated to their angular and radial components. The series coefficients for these solutions are obtaine...
Evaluation of multivariate adaptive non-parametric reduced-order model for solving the inverse electrocardiography problem: a simulation study
Onak, Onder Nazim; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-05-01)
In the inverse electrocardiography (ECG) problem, the goal is to reconstruct the heart's electrical activity from multichannel body surface potentials and a mathematical model of the torso. Over the years, researchers have employed various approaches to solve this ill-posed problem including regularization, optimization, and statistical estimation. It is still a topic of interest especially for researchers and clinicians whose goal is to adopt this technique in clinical applications. Among the wide range of...
Computation of transient thermal stresses in elastic-plastic tubes: Effect of coupling and temperature-dependent physical properties
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2002-06-01)
The objective of this study is to obtain the transient solution of the thermoelastic-plastic deformation of internal heat-generating tubes by considering the thermomechanical coupling effect and the temperature-dependent physical properties of the material. The previously developed steady-state model describing the elastic-plastic behavior of the tubes is modified to obtain the transient solution. The propagation of the elastic-plastic interface for a given heat load is obtained; and the corresponding stres...

Demirci, Ebru; Baykal, Cüneyt; Güler, Işıkhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
In this study, XBeach, a two dimensional depth averaged numerical model developed mainly for simulating nearshore hydro- and morphodynamics is applied to two case studies; i) laboratory experiments on short-term morphological changes around a detached breakwater and a T-groin and ii) a fluvial dominated coastal flooding event at the Manavgat river mouth between dates, 4th and 15th December, 1998. In the first part of study, the numerical model is calibrated for the wave, current and bottom evolution conditi...
