Optimal solution of the discrete cost multicommodity network design problem
(Elsevier, 20081015)We investigate a multicommodity network design problem where a discrete set of Technologies with stepincreasing cost and capacity functions should be installed on the edges. This problem is a fundamental network design ... 
Metal CMP optimization based on chemically formed thin film analysis
(The Electrochemical Society, 2009)The conventional demands for development in semiconductor industry are changing as the Moore's Law is approaching to its limits. This paper demonstrates a theoretical optimization approach for the planarization of metal ... 
Mechanical and wear properties of ultrafinegrained pure Ti produced by multipass equalchannel angular extrusion
(Elsevier, 20090820)In this study, pure grade 2 Ti was processed via equalchannel angular extrusion (ECAE) for 8 and 12 passes following routeE at 300 °C. After processing, the microstructural evolution, tensile properties and wear behavior ... 
Solution of nearfield thermal radiation in onedimensional layered media using dyadic Green's functions and the scattering matrix method
