— This paper presents the results of the recent research on modelling the variation in human decision making. The relationship between the uncertainty introduced to the membership functions (mfs) of a fuzzy logic system (FLS) and the variation in FLS's decision making is explored using two separate methods. Initially uncertainty is introduced to a type-1(More)
This paper presents preliminary investigations into modelling the variation in human decision making. The relationship between the uncertainty introduced to the membership functions (mfs) of a Fuzzy Logic System (FLS) and the variation in decision making is explored using two separate methods. Initially uncertainty is introduced to a type-1 FLS by adding(More)
An investigation was carried out in which the performances of type-1 and type-2 fuzzy logic systems (FLSs) with varying number of tunable parameters were compared in their ability to predict the Mackey-Glass time series with various levels of added noise. Each of the FLSs were tuned to achieve the best possible performance using a standardised gradient(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to assess the relationship between the maxillary sinus floor and the maxillary posterior teeth root tips using dental cone-beam CT. METHODS A total of 87 right and 89 left maxillary sinus regions from 92 patients were examined using dental cone-beam CT. Images were analyzed by a specialist in oral and(More)
BACKGROUND The most severe complication after the removal of mandibular third molars is injury to the inferior alveolar nerve or the lingual nerve. These complications are rather uncommon (0.4% to 8.4%) and most of them are transient. However, some of them persist for longer than 6 months, which can leave various degrees of long-term permanent disability.(More)
The inferior alveolar nerve is the one of the large branches of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. It is vulnerable during surgical procedures of the mandible. Despite its importance, no anatomical and histological examination has been conducted to provide a detailed cross-sectional morphology of the mandibular canal according to dental(More)
The metals industry and plant equipment suppliers are constantly striving to obtain a competitive edge. Level I dynamic control products from British industry are world-class, but it is recognised that the level II supervisory control systems can be improved. This project seeks to achieve this by adopting new intelligent technologies to utilise plant(More)
Processing of Aluminium Plate through a four high, reversing mill, requires complex supervisory control in order to obtain quality product. Alcoa, Europe, Flat Rolled Products, currently employ a state-of-the-art model-based, adaptation system (HMAS), supplied by VAI. It was considered that useful knowledge contained within routinely collected plant data(More)
1. ABSTRACT This paper presents the artificial neural network (ANN) models used in (Ozen et al) to estimate the heating and rolling times in an aluminium process. (Ozen et al) identifies scheduling of the soaking pits/rolling mill process at an aluminium plant as an NP-Hard two-stage flow-shop problem and presents an algorithm (SPO) to synthesise a schedule(More)
