    A. S. Harish*, C. Malathy

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.36, No.1, pp. 589-600, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.032030

    Abstract Retailing is a dynamic business domain where commodities and goods are sold in small quantities directly to the customers. It deals with the end user customers of a supply-chain network and therefore has to accommodate the needs and desires of a large group of customers over varied utilities. The volume and volatility of the business makes it one of the prospective fields for analytical study and data modeling. This is also why customer segmentation drives a key role in multiple retail business decisions such as marketing budgeting, customer targeting, customized offers, value proposition etc. The segmentation could be on various… More >

    Active Kriging-Based Adaptive Importance Sampling for Reliability and Sensitivity Analyses of Stator Blade Regulator

    Hong Zhang1, Lukai Song1,2,*, Guangchen Bai1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.134, No.3, pp. 1871-1897, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.021880


    The reliability and sensitivity analyses of stator blade regulator usually involve complex characteristics like high-nonlinearity, multi-failure regions, and small failure probability, which brings in unacceptable computing efficiency and accuracy of the current analysis methods. In this case, by fitting the implicit limit state function (LSF) with active Kriging (AK) model and reducing candidate sample pool with adaptive importance sampling (AIS), a novel AK-AIS method is proposed. Herein, the AK model and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) are first established to identify the most probable failure region(s) (MPFRs), and the adaptive kernel density estimation (AKDE) importance sampling function is constructed to… More >

    Abstract Applications based on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) have shown to be quite useful in monitoring a particular geographic area of interest. Relevant geometries of the surrounding environment are essential to establish a successful WSN topology. But it is literally hard because constructing a localization algorithm that tracks the exact location of Sensor Nodes (SN) in a WSN is always a challenging task. In this research paper, Distance Matrix and Markov Chain (DM-MC) model is presented as node localization technique in which Distance Matrix and Estimation Matrix are used to identify the position of the node.

    Da Teng1, Yunwen Feng1,*, Cheng Lu1,2, Chengwei Fei2, Jiaqi Liu1, Xiaofeng Xue1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.129, No.2, pp. 1029-1049, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.016945

    Abstract Turbine blisks are assembled using blades, disks and casings. They can endure complex loads at a high temperature, high pressure and high speed. The safe operation of assembled structures depends on the reliability of each component. Monte Carlo (MC) simulation is commonly used to analyze structural reliability, but this method needs to run thousands of computations. In order to assess the clearance reliability of assembled structures in an efficient and precise manner, the novel Kriging-based decomposed-coordinated (DC) (DCNK) approach is proposed by integrating the DC strategy, the Kriging model and the importance sampling-based Markov chain (MCIS) technique. In this method,… More >

    Amer I. Al-Omari1, Amal S. Hassan2, Heba F. Nagy2, Ayed R. A. Al-Anzi3,*, Loai Alzoubi1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.69, No.3, pp. 3795-3811, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.019061

    Abstract This paper deals with the Bayesian estimation of Shannon entropy for the generalized inverse exponential distribution. Assuming that the observed samples are taken from the upper record ranked set sampling (URRSS) and upper record values (URV) schemes. Formulas of Bayesian estimators are derived depending on a gamma prior distribution considering the squared error, linear exponential and precautionary loss functions, in addition, we obtain Bayesian credible intervals. The random-walk Metropolis-Hastings algorithm is handled to generate Markov chain Monte Carlo samples from the posterior distribution. Then, the behavior of the estimates is examined at various record values. The output of the study… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.125, No.2, pp. 801-814, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.08889

    Abstract Based on the rapid simulation of Markov Chain on samples in failure region, a novel method of reliability analysis combining Monte Carlo Markov Chain (MCMC) with random forest algorithm was proposed. Firstly, a series of samples distributing around limit state function are generated by MCMC. Then, the samples were taken as training data to establish the random forest model. Afterwards, Monte Carlo simulation was used to evaluate the failure probability. Finally, examples demonstrate the proposed method possesses higher computational efficiency and accuracy. More >
