  • A multi-objective mathematical model for the industrial hazardous waste location-routing problem 

    Authors:Samanlıoğlu, Funda
    Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science Bv, 2013)
    Industrial hazardous waste management involves the collection transportation treatment recycling and disposal of industrial hazardous materials that pose risk to their surroundings. In this paper a new multiobjective location-routing model is developed and implemented in the Marmara region of Turkey. The aim of the model is to help decision makers decide on locations of treatment centers utilizing different technologies routing different types of industrial hazardous wastes to compatible treatment ...

  • Max-pivot routing for opportunistic networks 

    Authors:Daǧ, Tamer
    Publisher and Date:(2013)
    Opportunistic networks are challenging types of networks where network connections are imminent. Network topologies are dynamic and can rapidly change. A path between a source node and a destination node may or may not exist the network can be disconnected. This type of behavior observed under opportunistic networks makes classical networking solutions impractical. Thus traditional routing algorithms are not suitable for such networks and will not be useful. Although flooding might be seen as the ...

  • A network model for the location-routing decisions of a logistics company 

    In this paper, part of the logistics network of one of the leading logistics companies in Turkey is analyzed. Data related to the candidate warehouse locations, supplies and demands of customers are collected. A network model is developed in order to reconfigure the logistics network. The aim of the mathematical model is to help decision makers decide on the locations of warehouses, as well as routing products from suppliers to the distribution center; from distribution center to warehouses; and ...

  • Routing decisions in an earthquake relief network 

    In this paper, a mathematical model is developed in order to configure part of the earthquake relief network in Istanbul, Turkey. The aim of the mathematical model is to help decision makers decide on the routing of different types of relief aids (food, drug, and tent) from the local airport to the main distribution centers; from the main distribution centers to sub-distribution centers and from these centers to the tent areas and meeting points of people in need, while minimizing the total cost ...

  • Routing with (p-percent) partial flooding for opportunistic networks 

    Opportunistic networks are one of the fast developing research areas in mobile communications. Under opportunistic networks mobile nodes try to communicate with other nodes without any prior information and knowledge about the network topology. Furthermore the network topologies are dynamic and can rapidly change. In addition communication under opportunistic networks can be erratic thus routes between a source node and a destination node sometimes might not exist. These issues would make traditonal ...
