Shortest Path Problem in Network with Type-2 Triangular Fuzzy Arc Length

Ranjan Kumar; Sripati Jha; Ramayan Singh

Volume 4, Issue 1 , September 2017, Pages 1-7

  In traditional shortest path problem it is always determined that the parameters (Time, Cost and Distance etc.) are fixed between different nodes. But in real life situations where uncertain parameters exist, parameters are considered as fuzzy numbers. In this paper, we  explained the application ...  Read More

A Generalized Model for Fuzzy Linear Programs with Trapezoidal Fuzzy Numbers

Seyed Hadi Nasseri; Hadi Zavieh; Seyedeh Maedeh Mirmohseni

Volume 4, Issue 1 , September 2017, Pages 24-38

  ‎ In this paper, we generalize a linear programming problem with symmetric trapezoidal ‎fuzzy number which is introduced by Ganesan and et al. in [3] to a general kind of trapezoidal fuzzy number. In this way, we first establish a new ‏arithmetic operation for multiplication of two ‏trapezoidal ...  Read More

Assessment of Robustness Index and Progressive Collapse in the RC Frame with Shear Wall Structure under Blast Loading

Hadi Faghihmaleki

Volume 4, Issue 1 , September 2017, Pages 59-66

  If in the event of a critical incident, by eliminating a structural element, a comprehensive damage occurs, such a phenomenon is called progressive collapse. At the moment of explosion, redistribute the carried load by members of damaged structural element or the adjacent members may Lead to excessive ...  Read More

Optimal Number of Failures in Type II Censoring for Rayleigh Distribution

Elham Basiri

Volume 4, Issue 1 , September 2017, Pages 67-74

  Recently, Rayleigh distribution has received considerable attention in the statistical literature. This paper describes the Bayesian prediction of the ‎one parameter Rayleigh ‎‎distribution when the data are Type II censored data. Suppose we are planning to collect a Type II censored sample ...  Read More
