This thesis deals with the problem proposed by Ye and Zhou (2007): Is a Q-optimal minimax design still symmetric if the requirement of $\int_\chi xm(x)dx = 0$ is removed? We have shown that for the simple linear regression, considering only the variance, a Q-optimal minimax design is necessarily...
Site layout planning, which involves identifying sizes and locations of temporary facilities, can have significant impacts on the safety, cost, time, and productivity of projects. Despite considerable research undertaken to improve efficiency of planning construction site layouts, most models...
This thesis deals with finding design points for nonlinear regression models with the possibility that the fitted model is incorrect. The information matrix depends on the parameter in nonlinear situations. We have assumed a range of values of the parameter and have specified a prior on the...
Under congested conditions, the road traffic states of different arterial links will interact with each other; therefore, it is necessary to understand the behavior of traffic corridors and to investigate corridor-wide traffic coordinated control strategies. In order to achieve this, traffic flow...
Development of a Genetic Algorithm Model for a Multiple-Objective Forest Harvesting and Zonation ProblemDownload
Most of the forested lands in North America are managed for multiple objectives and forest management plans are designed in a manner to obtain or maintain sustainable forest management certification. One strategy for achieving some of these goals is forest zonation, which allows for different...
Multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) techniques have been proposed to meet the needs for higher data rates and lower delays in future wireless communication systems. The downlink capacity of multiuser MIMO systems is achieved when the system transmits to several users simultaneously....
Optimization of steam/solvent injection methods: Application of hybrid techniques with improved algorithm configurationDownload
Heavy oil and bitumen recovery processes need to be optimized in order to increase the recovery, reduce costs, and minimize the environment impact. Most of the optimization studies published in petroleum engineering literature focus on a few design parameters by combining the elements of...
Regarding the problems of resource allocation in OFDMA-based wireless communication systems, much of the research effort mainly focuses on finding efficient power control and subcarrier assignment policies. With systems employing multicast transmission, the available schemes in literature are not...
