Besides, the ECG signals can be used for human identification. In this work, a Tietze pattern and neighborhood component analysis (NCA)-based human identification method is proposed. Our model uses two feature generation methods to extract both statistical and textural features. The Tietze graph is considered to create a pattern of the presented local graph structure (LGS). Both statistical and textural feature generations are not enough to present a high-accurate model. Therefore, a multileveled structure must be created. Tunable Q-factor wavelet transform (TQWT) is employed as a decomposer. The generated/extracted features in each level are merged, and the merged features are selected using NCA. The k-nearest neighbors (kNN) classifier is deployed on the chosen features in the classification phase to obtain predicted values. The recommended method was tested on two ECG signal corpora called ECGID and MIT-BIH. The model achieved 99.12% and 99.94% accuracies on the used ECGID and MIT-BIH datasets, respectively.

© 2021 The Author(s). Published by Cambridge University Press in association with the European Microwave Association.In this paper, we present a linear to circular polarization converter integrated in a concrete structure to eliminate signal transmission problem originated from the concrete buildings in microwave regime. Two polarization converter samples and a control specimen made by traditional concrete are designed and their signal transmission responses are compared experimentally. Axial ratio values w...
Assessment of performance of horizontal drains in an open pit mine in eastern Turkey
Argunhan Atalay, Çidem; Yazıcıgil, Hasan (2021-02-01)
© 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer-Verlag GmbH, DE part of Springer Nature.Prediction of spatial distribution of pore-water pressure and its control are the main issues in open pit mines, since excess pore-water pressure is one of the main causes of slope instability. Horizontal drains are commonly used to relieve the excess pore-water pressure as a method of slope stabilization. This paper presents the efficacy of horizontal drains along two cross-sections in an open pit mine locate...
Designing and implementing a STEM career maturity program for prospective counselors
Karahan, Engin; Kara, Ahmet; AKÇAY, AHMET OĞUZ (2021-12-01)
© 2021, The Author(s).Background: Although the importance of directing students to career options in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields at early ages has been emphasized in the literature, it has not been clearly stated just who will play a role in this process and what kind of consultancy process will be followed. It is of great importance for prospective counselors, who are studying in the field of counseling, to master the career selection process, specifically for STEM, towa...
Adjustment experiences of Syrian immigrant university students in Turkey
Keklik, İbrahim; Kaya, Özgür Salih (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021-01-01)
© 2021, The Author(s)This study intended to examine the adjustment experiences of Syrian immigrant university students through their immigration process in Turkey. A qualitative design was utilized. The participants consisted of 14 students attending to state universities in Ankara, 7 of whom were males and 7 females. The data was collected through semi-structured interviews conducted by one of the researchers. Two main categories were identified while analyzing the process of social adaptation of Syrian im...
Encapsulation of Magnesium with Lentil Flour by Using Double Emulsion to Produce Magnesium Enriched Cakes
Kabakcı, Cansu; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2021-01-01)
© 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.Magnesium, a vital mineral for the human body, should be encapsulated before addition into foods to avoid the drawbacks related to chemical reactions. In this study, double emulsion entrapment was applied to protect magnesium. Different concentrations (15, 20, 25, 30%) of lentil flour were used as the hydrophilic surfactant, and high-speed homogenizer and ultrasonic homogenizer were applied as the...
