Evaluation of a Floating Point Acoustic Echo Canceller Implementation (Computer project)

This master thesis consists of implementation and evaluation of an AEC, Acoustic Echo Canceller, algorithm in a floating-point architecture. The most important question this thesis will try to answer is to determine Continue reading

Segmentation of Pulmonary Nodules in Computed Tomography using a Regression Neural Network Approach and its Application to the Lung Image Database Consortium and Image Database Resource Initiative Dataset (Electrical Project)

We present new pulmonary nodule segmentation algorithms for computed tomography (CT). These include a fully-automated (FA) system, a semi-automated (SA) system, and a hybrid system. Like most traditional systems, the Continue reading

Modeling of the arterial system with an AVD implanted (Electrical/Biomedical Project)

The number of patients that are waiting for heart transplants far exceed the number of available donor hearts. Left Ventricular Assist Devices are mechanical alternatives that can help and are helping several patients. They work by taking blood from the left Continue reading

Design and Implementation of a Constraint Satisfaction Algorithm for Meal Planning (Computer Project)

The world’s population is ageing. Due to societal improvements in healthcare, living standards, and socio-economic status, more and more people are living to old age. The proportion of the world’s population aged 65 or over is expected to increase from 11% in 1998 to 16% in 2025. This causes a major public health issue, because Continue reading

Cavitation Assessment of the Baihetan Discharge Tunnel – Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (Civil Project)

Recently it has become more common in the construction of large dams to reuse diversion tunnels as flood discharge tunnels in the final structure. These tunnels handle large flows with the characteristics of open channel flow. When such Continue reading
