    • Animation of deformable models 

      Güdükbay U.; Özgüç, B. (Pergamon Press, 1994)
      Although kinematic modelling methods are adequate for describing the shapes of static objects, they are insufficient when it comes to producing realistic animation. Physically based modelling remedies this problem by ...

      Atalar, Abdullah; Ishikawa, I.; Ogura, Y.; Tomita, K. (IEEE, 1993)
      A conventional spherical acoustic lens is modified by restricting its aperture in the form of a slit to provide directional sensitivity. The spacing between the two parallel absorbing sheets forming the slit is adjustable ...

      Behnia, S.; Mobadersani F.; Yahyavi, M.; Rezavand, A. (2013)
      In the present paper, the nonlinear behavior of bubble growth under the excitation of an acoustic pressure pulse in non-Newtonian fluid domain has been investigated. Due to the importance of the bubble in the medical ...
    • Coherent energetic interfaces accounting for in-plane degradation 

      Esmaeili, A.; Javili, A.; Steinmann, P. (Springer Netherlands, 2016)
      Interfaces can play a dominant role in the overall response of a body. The importance of interfaces is particularly appreciated at small length scales due to large area to volume ratios. From the mechanical point of view, ...
    • Elastic scaling for data stream processing 

      Gedik, B.; Schneider S.; Hirzel M.; Wu, Kun-Lung (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
      This article addresses the profitability problem associated with auto-parallelization of general-purpose distributed data stream processing applications. Auto-parallelization involves locating regions in the application's ...
    • Enhancing higher harmonics of a tapping cantilever by excitation at a submultiple of its resonance frequency 

      Balantekin, M.; Atalar, Abdullah (American Physical Society, 2005-03)
      In a tapping-mode atomic force microscope, the frequency spectrum of the oscillating cantilever contains higher harmonics at integer multiples of the excitation frequency. When the cantilever oscillates at its fundamental ...
    • Harmonic cantilevers for nanomechanical sensing of elastic properties 

      Sahin, O.; Yaralioglu, G.; Grow, R.; Zappe, S. F.; Atalar, Abdullah; Quate, C.; Solgaard, O. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2003)
      We present a micromachined scanning probe cantilever, in which a specific higher order flexural mode is designed to be resonant at an exact integer multiple of the fundamental resonance frequency. We have demonstrated that ...
    • High conducting nanowires obtained from uniform titanium covered carbon nanotubes 

      Daǧ, S.; Durgun, E.; Çiraci, S. (2005)
      We have shown that Ti atoms can form continuous coating of carbon nanotubes at different amount of coverage. The circular cross section changes to a square-like form, and the semiconducting tube becomes ferromagnetic metal ...

      We present telemetric sensing of surface strains on different industrial materials using split-ring-resonator based metamaterials. For wireless strain sensing, we utilize metamaterial array architectures for high sensitivity ...
    • Model-free adaptive hysteresis for dynamic bandwidth reservation 

      Akar, N. (2007)
      Dynamic bandwidth reservation refers to the process of dynamically updating the bandwidth allocation to a connection between two network end points on the basis of actual aggregate traffic demand of the connection. We ...

      Balantekin, M.; Atalar, Abdullah (American Physical Society, 2003)
      In a tapping-mode atomic force microscope, a power is dissipated in the sample during the imaging process. While the vibrating tip taps on the sample surface, some part of its energy is coupled to the sample. Too much ...
