  • Regression model for interior design cost estimate in preliminary stage 

    Authors:Yazicioglu, Deniz Ayse
    Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science Bv, 2012)
    Cost factors become even more important in the design of the kitchen which is remodeled 34% more than any other room of the house. For this reason the purpose of this study was to propose a reliable kitchen cost estimate model that can be used during the pre-design stages. The first stage of the methodology consisted of defining the limits and the parameters of the model. Next 1.309 kitchen design projects were analyzed for data and a regression model based on the correlations between these data ...

  • Room Acoustic Modelling of a Reverberation Chamber 

    This paper aims at comparing measured broadband reverberation time values in the reverberation chamber of Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey - National Metrology Institute (TUBITAK-UME) in Gebze Turkey with the simulated reverberation time values from the room acoustical modelling of the same reverberation chamber. The reverberation chamber in TUBITAK-UME has a volume of 263m3 total inner surface area of 262 m2 and 16 diffusers made of Plexiglas and hung randomly in the room. ...
