  • Computer Vision Techniques Applied for Diagnostic Analysis of Retinal OCT
           Images: A Review
    • Authors: Muhammad Usman; Muhammad Moazam Fraz; Sarah A. Barman
      Pages: 449 - 465
      Abstract: The retina is a tiny layer at the posterior pole of an eye and is made up of tissues sensitive to light, these tissues generate nerve signals that pass through the optic nerve to the brain. A retinal disorder occurs when the retina malfunctions; glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and pathologic myopia are retinal disorders and principal causes of blindness worldwide. These retinal disorders are often diagnosed and treated by an ophthalmologist. However, to accurately assess a retinal disease, ophthalmologist would need qualitative and quantitative analysis of the disease, it’s early and current statistics, but acquisition of these measurements are not possible through manual techniques, there should be automated computer aided diagnosis (CAD) systems to assist ophthalmologists. In this comprehensive review, an analysis and evaluation has been performed of different computer vision and image processing approaches applied to OCT images for automatic diagnosis of retinal disorders. We also reported disease causes, symptoms and pathologies manifestations within OCT images, which can serve as baseline knowledge for development of an automated CAD system. Hence, this disease specific review offers a good understanding to analyze visual impairments from retinal OCT images which will help researcher to design enhanced therapeutic systems for retinal disorders.

  • Recent Researches on Nonlocal Elasticity Theory in the Vibration of Carbon
           Nanotubes Using Beam Models: A Review
    • Authors: L. Behera; S. Chakraverty
      Pages: 481 - 494
      Abstract: Understanding dynamic behavior of carbon nanotubes has been of interest to researchers because of its practical applications. Recent studies show that nonlocal elasticity theory gives better results in the vibration of carbon nanotubes. The necessity of nonlocal elasticity theory, calibration of nonlocal parameter and application of nonlocal elasticity theory in various studies related to vibration of carbon nanotubes are discussed. This review emphasizes the application of nonlocal elasticity theory in the vibration of carbon nanotubes considering various types of complicating effects, nonlinearity, functionally graded material and different beam theories.

  • A Critical Assessment of Kriging Model Variants for High-Fidelity
           Uncertainty Quantification in Dynamics of composite Shells
    • Authors: T. Mukhopadhyay; S. Chakraborty; S. Dey; S. Adhikari; R. Chowdhury
      Pages: 495 - 518
      Abstract: This paper presents a critical comparative assessment of Kriging model variants for surrogate based uncertainty propagation considering stochastic natural frequencies of composite doubly curved shells. The five Kriging model variants studied here are: Ordinary Kriging, Universal Kriging based on pseudo-likelihood estimator, Blind Kriging, Co-Kriging and Universal Kriging based on marginal likelihood estimator. First three stochastic natural frequencies of the composite shell are analysed by using a finite element model that includes the effects of transverse shear deformation based on Mindlin’s theory in conjunction with a layer-wise random variable approach. The comparative assessment is carried out to address the accuracy and computational efficiency of five Kriging model variants. Comparative performance of different covariance functions is also studied. Subsequently the effect of noise in uncertainty propagation is addressed by using the Stochastic Kriging. Representative results are presented for both individual and combined stochasticity in layer-wise input parameters to address performance of various Kriging variants for low dimensional and relatively higher dimensional input parameter spaces. The error estimation and convergence studies are conducted with respect to original Monte Carlo Simulation to justify merit of the present investigation. The study reveals that Universal Kriging coupled with marginal likelihood estimate yields the most accurate results, followed by Co-Kriging and Blind Kriging. As far as computational efficiency of the Kriging models is concerned, it is observed that for high-dimensional problems, CPU time required for building the Co-Kriging model is significantly less as compared to other Kriging variants.

  • Gap Flow Simulation Methods in High Pressure Variable Displacement Axial
           Piston Pumps
    • Authors: Tomasz Zawistowski; Michał Kleiber
      Pages: 519 - 542
      Abstract: High pressure variable displacement axial piston pumps are subject to complex dynamic phenomena. Their analysis is difficult, additionally complicated by leakage of the working fluid. Analytically gap flow is calculated with the Reynolds equation which describes the pressure distribution in a thin lubricating layer. The paper presents various approaches to analyze gap flow both in traditional axial piston pump and novel type of hydraulic pump, designed at the Polish Gdansk Institute of Technology. Because of large aspect ratio between the height of the gap and the size of pump elements, the authors present the numerical simulation approach using a local model to define a lubrication gap, linked to a global model of a pump from which boundary conditions were imported. User defined functions implemented in Fluent and Excel were used to calculate the pressure and velocity fields and assess the fluid flow rate.

  • Condition Monitoring Parameters for Fault Diagnosis of Fixed Axis Gearbox:
           A Review
    • Authors: Deepam Goyal; Vanraj; B. S. Pabla; S. S. Dhami
      Pages: 543 - 556
      Abstract: Condition monitoring of gearboxes which is considered as a key element of rotating machines ensures to continuously reduce and eliminate cost, unscheduled downtime and unexpected breakdowns. Although, a lot of work on condition monitoring and fault diagnosis of fixed-axis gearbox has been reported in the literature, however only a few have found their way to industrial applications. The ability of condition statistical indicators is to provide accurate and precise information about the health of various components at different levels of damage. In this paper, frequently used condition indicators are addressed domain-wise and their characteristics are stated. This paper presents the review of work to provide a wide and good reference for researchers to be utilized. The structure of a fixed-axis gearbox in addition to the unique behaviors and fault characteristics of fixed-axis gearbox has been recognized and represented. By extensively reviewing and categorizing important papers and articles, this paper is able to summarize the conditional monitoring indicators on basis of adopted methodologies. Lastly, open problems are stated and further research prospects pointed out.

  • Mitigating Error and Uncertainty in Partitioned Analysis: A Review of
           Verification, Calibration and Validation Methods for Coupled Simulations
    • Authors: Garrison Stevens; Sez Atamturktur
      Pages: 557 - 571
      Abstract: Partitioned analysis involves coupling of constituent models that resolve different scales or physics by allowing them to exchange inputs and outputs in an iterative manner. Through partitioning, simulations of complex physical systems are becoming evermore present in the scientific modeling community, making the Verification and Validation (V&V) of partitioned models to quantifying the predictive capability of their simulations increasingly important. Partitioning presents unique challenges, as well as opportunities, for the V&V community. Verification gains a new level of complexity in partitioned models, as numerical errors can easily be introduced at the coupling interface where non-matching domains and models are integrated together. For validation, partitioned analysis allows the quantification of the uncertainties and errors in constituent models through comparison against separate-effect experiments conducted in independent constituent domains. Such experimental validation is important as uncertainties and errors in the predictions of constituents can be transferred across their interfaces, either compensating for each other or accumulating during iterative coupling operations. This paper reviews published literature on methods for assessing and improving the predictive capability of strongly coupled models of physical and engineering systems with an emphasis on advancements made in the last decade.

  • Computational Mechanisms of Pulse-Coupled Neural Networks: A Comprehensive
           Review
    • Authors: Kun Zhan; Jinhui Shi; Haibo Wang; Yuange Xie; Qiaoqiao Li
      Pages: 573 - 588
      Abstract: Pulse-coupled neural networks (PCNN) have an inherent ability to process the signals associated with the digital visual images because it is inspired from the neuronal activity in the primary visual area, V1, of the neocortex. This paper provides insight into the internal operations and behaviors of PCNN, and reveals the way how PCNN achieves good performance in digital image processing. The various properties of PCNN are categorized into a novel three-dimensional taxonomy for image processing mechanisms. The first dimension specifies the time matrix of PCNN, the second dimension captures the firing rate of PCNN, and the third dimension is the synchronization of PCNN. Many examples of processing mechanisms are provided to make it clear and concise.

  • Vibration Prediction of Bladed Disks Coupled by Friction Joints
    • Authors: Malte Krack; Loic Salles; Fabrice Thouverez
      Pages: 589 - 636
      Abstract: The present review article addresses the vibration behavior of bladed disks encountered e.g. in aircraft engines as well as industrial gas and steam turbines. The utilization of the dissipative effects of dry friction in mechanical joints is a common means of the passive mitigation of structural vibrations caused by aeroelastic excitation mechanisms. The prediction of the vibration behavior is a scientific challenge due to (a) the strongly nonlinear contact interactions involving local sticking, sliding and liftoff, (b) the model order required to accurately describe the dynamic behavior of the assembly, and (c) the multi-disciplinary character of the problem associated with the need to account for structural mechanical as well as fluid dynamical effects. The purpose of this article is the overview and discussion the current state of the art of vibration prediction approaches. The modeling approaches in this work embrace the description of the rotating bladed disk, the contact modeling, the consideration of aeroelastic effects, appropriate model order reduction techniques and the exploitation of the rotationally periodic nature of the problem. The simulation approaches cover the direct computation of periodic, steady-state externally forced and self-excited vibrations using the high-order harmonic balance method, the formulation of the contact problem in the frequency domain, methods for the solution of the governing algebraic equations and advanced simulation approaches, including the concept of nonlinear modes.

  • Review of Plant Identification Based on Image Processing
    • Authors: Zhaobin Wang; Huale Li; Ying Zhu; TianFang Xu
      Pages: 637 - 654
      Abstract: Plant recognition is closely related to people’s life. The operation of the traditional plant identification method is complicated, and is unfavorable for popularization. The rapid development of computer image processing and pattern recognition technology makes it possible for computer’s automatic recognition of plant species based on image processing. There are more and more researchers drawing their attention on the computer’s automatic identification technology based on plant images in recent years. Based on this, we have carried on a wide range of research and analysis on the plant identification method based on image processing in recent years. First of all, the research significance and history of plant recognition technologies are introduced in this paper; secondly, the main technologies and steps of plant recognition are reviewed; thirdly, more than 30 leaf features (including 16 shape features, 11 texture features, four color features), and then SVM was used to evaluate these features and their fusion features, and 8 commonly used classifiers are introduced in detail. Finally, the paper is ended with a conclusion of the insufficient of plant identification technologies and a prediction of future development.

  • Review of Reduced Order Models for Heat and Moisture Transfer in Building
           Physics with Emphasis in PGD Approaches
    • Authors: Julien Berger; Nathan Mendes; Sihem Guernouti; Monika Woloszyn; Francisco Chinesta
      Pages: 655 - 667
      Abstract: This paper presents a review of the use of model reduction techniques for building physics applications. The use of separated representations, the so called Proper Generalised Decomposition (PGD), is particularly investigated. This technique can be applied for efficient building physics modelling at different levels: the wall and multizone models, the whole-building (coupled envelope and air volumes) simulation and their practical applications. The PGD can be formulated as a space-time representation to provide fast and accurate solutions of 2- and 3-dimensional problems at the wall or the whole-building level. Furthermore, the PGD solution allows to treat efficiently parametric problems of practical building applications.

  • WYPiWYG Damage Mechanics for Soft Materials: A Data-Driven Approach
    • Authors: Mar Miñano; Francisco J. Montáns
      Abstract: The conservative elastic behavior of soft materials is characterized by a stored energy function which shape is usually specified a priori, except for some material parameters. There are hundreds of proposed stored energies in the literature for different materials. The stored energy function may change under loading due to damage effects, but it may be considered constant during unloading–reloading. The two dominant approaches in the literature to model this damage effect are based either on the Continuum Damage Mechanics framework or on the Pseudoelasticity framework. In both cases, additional assumed evolution functions, with their associated material parameters, are proposed. These proposals are semi-inverse, semi-analytical, model-driven and data-adjusted ones. We propose an alternative which may be considered a non-inverse, numerical, model-free, data-driven, approach. We call this approach WYPiWYG constitutive modeling. We do not assume global functions nor material parameters, but just solve numerically the differential equations of a set of tests that completely define the behavior of the solid under the given assumptions. In this work we extend the approach to model isotropic and anisotropic damage in soft materials. We obtain numerically the damage evolution from experimental tests. The theory can be used for both hard and soft materials, and the infinitesimal formulation is naturally recovered for infinitesimal strains. In fact, we motivate the formulation in a one-dimensional infinitesimal framework and we show that the concepts are immediately applicable to soft materials.

  • A Review of Trimming in Isogeometric Analysis: Challenges, Data Exchange
           and Simulation Aspects
    • Authors: Benjamin Marussig; Thomas J. R. Hughes
      Abstract: We review the treatment of trimmed geometries in the context of design, data exchange, and computational simulation. Such models are omnipresent in current engineering modeling and play a key role for the integration of design and analysis. The problems induced by trimming are often underestimated due to the conceptional simplicity of the procedure. In this work, several challenges and pitfalls are described.

  • Solving the Two Objective Evolutionary Shape Optimization of a Natural
           Laminar Airfoil and Shock Control Bump with Game Strategies
    • Authors: Z. Tang; Y. Chen; L. Zhang; J. Périaux
      Abstract: In order to improve the performances of a civil aircraft at transonic regimes, it is critical to develop new computational optimization methods reducing friction drag. Natural laminar flow (NLF) airfoil/wing design remain efficient methods to reduce the turbulence skin friction. However, the existence of wide range of favorable pressure gradient on a laminar flow airfoil/wing surface leads to strong shock waves occurring at the neighborhood of the trailing edge of the airfoil/wing. Consequently, the reduction of the friction drag due to the extension of the laminar flow surface of the airfoil is compensated with an increase of the shock wave induced drag. In this paper, an evolutionary algorithm (EAs) hybridized with different games (cooperative Pareto game, competitive Nash game and hierarchical Stackelberg game) for comparison is implemented to optimize the airfoil shape with a larger laminar flow range and a weaker shock wave drag simultaneously due to a shock control bump (SCB) active device. Numerical experiments demonstrate that each game coupled to the EAs optimizer can easily capture either a Pareto front, a Nash equilibrium or a Stackelberg equilibrium of this two-objective shape optimization problem. From the analysis/synthesis of 2D results it is concluded that a variety of laminar flow airfoils with greener aerodynamic performances can be significantly improved due to optimal SCB shape and position when compared to the baseline airfoil geometry. This methodology illustrate the potentiality of such an approach to solve the challenging shape optimization of the NLF wings in industrial design environments.

  • Reduced Modeling of Unknown Trajectories
    • Authors: Patrick Héas; Cédric Herzet
      Abstract: This paper deals with model order reduction of parametrical dynamical systems. We consider the specific setup where the distribution of the system’s trajectories is unknown but the following two sources of information are available: (i) some “rough” prior knowledge on the system’s realisations; (ii) a set of “incomplete” observations of the system’s trajectories. We propose a Bayesian methodological framework to build reduced-order models (ROMs) by exploiting these two sources of information. We emphasise that complementing the prior knowledge with the collected data provably enhances the knowledge of the distribution of the system’s trajectories. We then propose an implementation of the proposed methodology based on Monte-Carlo methods. In this context, we show that standard ROM learning techniques, such e.g., proper orthogonal decomposition or dynamic mode decomposition, can be revisited and recast within the probabilistic framework considered in this paper. We illustrate the performance of the proposed approach by numerical results obtained for a standard geophysical model.

  • An Overview of Multiresolution Analysis for Nondestructive Evaluation of
           Pavement Surface Drainage
    • Authors: Behrouz Mataei; H. Zakeri; F. Moghadas Nejad
      Abstract: Network level drainage assessment of the pavement surface plays a crucial role in controlling and decreasing the accident rate. Hydroplaning is one of the major causes of accidents in wet weather conditions and is the consequence of low drainage quality of pavement surfaces. Since no automated system currently exists for the pavement drainage evaluation, this work was conducted to present a new system to assess drainage process quality. For this aim, the saturation situation was simulated for pavement surface and photo acquisition was carried out on the drainage process of pavement surface after saturation. Finally, image processing method was applied to produce an index related to drainage quality. Using a proper method to enhance and prepare these images for the analysis step and find appreciate feature for the drainage quality is also among the necessities of drainage assessment. After a brief overview of multiresolution analysis, we revise the state-of-the-art of multiresolution analysis methods by discussing assessing parameters for asphalt surface image enhancement in nondestructive evaluation, formulated and fused to allow for a general comparison. In this work, different transform methods are used for asphalt surface image enhancement and a comparison is made between wavelet, curvelet, ridgelet, shearlet, and contourlet transforms by assessing parameters including TIME, PSNR, SNR, MSE, MAE, MSE, UQI, and SSIM. The comparison among the obtained results shows the superiority of shearlet transform over other transforms in providing of processed images with higher quality. Furthermore, it was found that ridgelet transform is more suitable for the jobs which time is the main parameter.

  • A Review of Multi-holes Drilling Path Optimization Using Soft Computing
           Approaches
    • Authors: Najwa Wahida Zainal Abidin; Mohd Fadzil Faisae Ab Rashid; Nik Mohd Zuki Nik Mohamed
      Abstract: In today’s competitive environment, optimization is considered as an important element for maintaining and improving both aspect of manufacturing such as quality and productivity. In multi-holes drilling process, 70% of the machining time involved the tool movement and tool switching. Various researches had been conducted to reduce the tool movement and switching time. This paper reviews the research publications on the drilling path optimization using soft computing approaches. In particular, this review focuses on four main aspects; drilling application areas, problem modeling, optimization algorithms and objective functions of drilling path optimization. Based on the review, the researchers’ interest in this area is still growing. However, the existing researches were limited to implement, modify and hybridized the well-established optimization algorithms. Furthermore, there is a lack of awareness to consider the environmental and sustainable issues in the existing research. In future, the researcher is suggested to give focus on energy consumption that related with sustainable manufacturing and also to explore the potential of new meta-heuristics algorithms that can lead to significant in reduction machining time.

  • Mesh Partitioning and Efficient Equation Solving Techniques by Distributed
           Finite Element Methods: A Survey
    • Authors: Shahab U. Ansari; Masroor Hussain; Suleman Mazhar; Tareq Manzoor; Khalid J. Siddiqui; Muhammad Abid; Habibullah Jamal
      Abstract: The mesh partitioning in parallel Finite Element Method (FEM) is an NP-hard problem. During the past few decades, several heuristic approaches have been proposed to address this problem. In addition to mesh distribution, solving a large set of algebraic equations also significantly contributes to the performance of a parallel solution. A number of efficient equation solving techniques are developed which exploit inherent properties of large coefficient matrices (for instance, symmetry and positive definiteness). In the present study, the performance of a distributed FEM system on the basis of the mesh partitioning approaches and equation solvers is discussed. The work contributes towards: (i) categorizing mesh partitioning methods, (ii) examining implementation variations in linear and nonlinear solution of equations, and (iii) exploring the impact of mesh partitioning and an equation solver on the performance of a distributed FEM system.

  • Review of Random Walk in Image Processing
    • Authors: Zhaobin Wang; Lijie Guo; Shuai Wang; Lina Chen; Hao Wang
      Abstract: The random walk, proposed in 1905, was applied into the field of computer vision in 1979. Subsequently, more and more researchers paid their attention to this new method. Recently it has become prevailing as to be widely applied in image processing, e.g. image segmentation, image fusion, image enhancement and so on. Until now there is no comprehensive review on random walk in image processing yet. Therefore, almost important references are reviewed in the paper, and six representative random walk models have been listed and explained in detail. And then their applications of random walk in image processing are introduced. At last, some existed problems and future work are pointed out.

  • Algebraic and Parametric Solvers for the Power Flow Problem: Towards
           Real-Time and Accuracy-Guaranteed Simulation of Electric Systems
    • Authors: Raquel García-Blanco; Pedro Díez; Domenico Borzacchiello; Francisco Chinesta
      Abstract: The power flow model performs the analysis of electric distribution and transmission systems. With this statement at hand, in this work we present a summary of those solvers for the power flow equations, in both algebraic and parametric version. The application of the Alternating Search Direction method to the power flow problem is also detailed. This results in a family of iterative solvers that combined with Proper Generalized Decomposition technique allows to solve the parametric version of the equations. Once the solution is computed using this strategy, analyzing the network state or solving optimization problems, with inclusion of generation in real-time, becomes a straightforward procedure since the parametric solution is available. Complementing this approach, an error strategy is implemented at each step of the iterative solver. Thus, error indicators are used as an stopping criteria controlling the accuracy of the approximation during the construction process. The application of these methods to the model IEEE 57-bus network is taken as a numerical illustration.
