Investigating the effect of hydroclimatological variables on Urmia Lake water level using wavelet coherence measure
(IWA Publishing, 2019)
In this paper, wavelet transform coherence is implemented to examine the impacts of hydroclimatological variables on water level fluctuations in two large saline lakes in the Middle East with a similar geographical location, ...
Viability of agricultural wastes as substitute of natural aggregate in concrete: A review on the durability-related properties
(Journal of Cleaner Production, 2020)
Increase in construction activities has led to rapid depletion of natural resources, particularly aggregates which are utilized in the production of concrete. At the same time, there are huge amount of solid wastes originating ...
Trend analysis of hydroclimatological variables in Urmia lake basin using hybrid wavelet Mann–Kendall and Şen tests
This paper investigates monthly, seasonal, and annual trends in rainfall, streamflow, temperature, and humidity amounts at Urmia lake (UL) basin and analyzes the interaction between these variables and UL’s water level ...
Season algorithm-multigene genetic programming: a new approach for rainfall-runoff modelling
(Springer Netherlands, 2018)
Genetic programming (GP) is recognized as a robust machine learning method for rainfall-runoff modelling. However, it may produce lagged forecasts if autocorrelation feature of runoff series is not taken carefully into ...
Performance of the Whale Optimization Algorithm in Space Steel Frame Optimization Problems
(Springer Science and Business Media Deutschland GmbH, 2020)
Frame optimization that contains highly non-linear and irregular functions and discrete design variables is one of the most challenging optimization problems. Therefore, gradient-based optimization techniques cannot be ...

A hybrid of firefly and biogeography-based optimization algorithms for optimal design of steel frames
(Arabian Journal for Science and Engineering, 2020)
The principle purpose of the current study is to hybridize firefly algorithm (FA) as a nature-inspired meta-heuristic developed based on the flashing patterns and biogeography-based optimization (BBO) to present a qualified ...
Chaos-based multigene genetic programming: a new hybrid strategy for river ﬂow forecasting
Chaos theory is integrated with Multi-Gene Genetic Programming (MGGP) engine as a new hybrid model for river flow forecasting. This is to be referred to as Chaos-MGGP and its performance is tested using daily historic flow ...
A brief review and a new automatic method for interpretation of polypropylene modified bitumen based on fuzzy radon transform and watershed segmentation
This paper reviews development exploitation semi and full automatic strategies for interpretation of Polypropylene Modifed Bitumen (PMB) in the last decade. The main purpose of this study is to provide a new automatic ...
Hydraulic and strength characteristics of pervious concrete containing a high volume of construction and demolition waste as aggregates
(Construction and Building Materials, 2020)
Recently, construction and demolition waste generated in Malaysia has dramatically increased. For long-term sustainable development, demolition wastes can be recycled in concrete production. Recycled concrete aggregate ...
