Application of ideal temperature gradient technology to optimize the chemical exchange and distillation process of boron isotopes separation by (CH3)2O-BF3 complex, Article Chemical Engineering and Processing: Process Intensification ; Volume 76 , February , 2014 , Pages 26-32 ; ISSN: 02552701 ; Ahmadi, S. J ; Sharif University of Technology
To exert the optimum effect, the chemical exchange process to boron isotope separation was investigated. In this enrichment method the distillation of dimethyl ether-boron trifluoride complex, which was one of the most efficient industrial methods for purification of isotope boron-10, was optimized. In chemical exchange process of boron isotopes separation two chemical reactions occur. The first one is the decomposition reaction that is an endothermic reaction. The second one is the exchange reaction that is a pyrogenic reaction. With increasing temperature, the decomposition reaction is speeded while the exchange reaction is slowed down. Affecting on both decomposition and exchange...

Green's functions of a transversely isotropic half-space overlaid by a thin coating layer are analytically obtained. The surface coating is modeled by a Kirchhoff thin plate perfectly bonded to the half-space. With the aid of superposition technique and employing appropriate displacement potential functions, the Green's functions are expressed in two parts; (i) a closed-form part corresponding to the transversely isotropic half-space with surface kinematic constraints, and (ii) a numerically evaluated part reflecting the interaction between the half-space and the plate in the form of semi-infinite integrals. Some limiting cases of the problem such as surface-stiffened isotropic half-space,...

Hill is a classical cipher which is generally believed to be resistant against ciphertext-only attack. In this paper, by using a divide-and-conquer technique, it is first shown that Hill with d×d key matrix over Z26 can be broken with computational complexity of O(d26d), for the English language. This is much less than the only publicly known attack, i.e., the brute-force with complexity of O(d326d2). Then by using the Chinese Remainder Theorem, it is shown that the computational complexity of the proposed attack can be reduced down to O(d13d). Using an information-theoretic approach, it is shown that the minimum ciphertext length required for a successful attack increases by a factor of...
Evaluation of hydrogen bonds formation in the selected rare sugars based on 6-31G* and 6–311 + + G(d,p) basis sets, Article Journal of Molecular Modeling ; Volume 27, Issue 11 , 2021 ; 16102940 (ISSN) ; Razi, M ; Ahmadi, S ; Sharif University of Technology

Rare sugars are monosaccharides with tremendous potential for applications in pharmaceutical, cosmetics, nutraceutical, and flavors industries. The four rare sugars, including gulose, allose, altrose, and talose, are stereoisomers that are different in the hydroxyl group orientation (axial or equatorial) on the C2-4 atoms. The basis sets effect in evaluation of the possibility intramolecular hydrogen bonding (H-bonds) in the selected rare sugars was studied from 6-31G* to 6–311 ++ G(d,p) basis sets using DFT, AIM, and NBO methods. The results show that the selected rare sugars are more stable at 6–311 ++ G(d,p) basis sets compared to 6-31G* because their electronic energies were reduced...

Following our previous work on morphology, corrosion resistance and thermal properties of unsaturated polyester (UP)/nanoclay composites, the effect of electron beam (EB) irradiation on mechanical properties of UP/nanoclay composites with various nanoclay contents is investigated in this work. Moreover, influence of EB irradiation with doses of 100, 500 and 1000 kGy on tensile properties and hardness of nanocomposite was examined. FTIR spectroscopy was employed to examine the effect of irradiation on chemical structure of polymer. EB irradiation up to 500 kGy led to the improvement of tensile strength and hardness of the samples. The best mechanical properties were observed for the...

Dynamic analysis of a rigid circular foundation on a transversely isotropic half-space under a buried inclined time-harmonic load, Article Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering ; Vol. 63, issue , 2014 , pp. 184-192 ; Ahmadi, S. F ; Khazaeli, S ; Sharif University of Technology
The dynamic analysis of a surface rigid foundation in smooth contact with a transversely isotropic half-space under a buried inclined time-harmonic load is addressed. By virtue of the superposition technique, appropriate Green[U+05F3]s functions, and employing further mathematical techniques, solution of the mixed-boundary-value problem is expressed in terms of two well-known Fredholm integral equations. Two limiting cases of the problem corresponding to the static loading and isotropic medium are considered and the available results in the literature are fully recovered. For the static case, the results pertinent to both frictionless and bonded contacts are obtained and compared. With the...
Boussinesq indentation of a transversely isotropic half-space reinforced by a buried inextensible membrane, Article Applied Mathematical Modelling ; Vol. 38, issue. 7-8 , April , 2014 , p. 2163-2172 ; Ahmadi, S. F ; Eskandari, M ; Sharif University of Technology
The normal indentation of a rigid circular disk into the surface of a transversely isotropic half-space reinforced by a buried inextensible thin film is addressed. By virtue of a displacement potential function and the Hankel transform, the governing equations of this axisymmetric mixed boundary value problem are represented as a dual integral equation, which is subsequently reduced to a Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. Two important results of the contact stress distribution beneath the disk region as well as the equivalent stiffness of the system are expressed in terms of the solution of the Fredholm integral equation. When the membrane is located on the surface or at the...
Lateral translation of an inextensible circular membrane embedded in a transversely isotropic half-space, Article European Journal of Mechanics, A/Solids ; Volume 39 , 2013 , Pages 134-143 ; 09977538 (ISSN) ; Shodja, H. M ; Ahmadi, S. F ; Sharif University of Technology
The asymmetric problem of lateral translation of an inextensible circular membrane embedded in a transversely isotropic half-space is addressed. With the aid of appropriate Green's functions, the governing equations of the problem are written as a set of coupled integral equations. With further mathematical transformations, the system of dual integral equations is reduced to two coupled Fredholm integral equations of the second kind which are amenable to numerical treatments. The exact closed-form solutions corresponding to two limiting cases of a membrane resting on the surface of a half-space and embedded in a full-space are derived. The jump behavior of results at the edge of the membrane...

Modeling arbitrary connectivity changes of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) makes application of automated formal verification challenging. We introduced constrained labeled transition systems (CLTSs) as a semantic model to represent mobility. To model check MANET protocol with respect to the underlying topology and connectivity changes, we here introduce a branching-time temporal logic interpreted over CLTSs. The temporal operators, from Action Computation Tree Logic with an unless operator, are parameterized by multi-hop constraints over topologies, to express conditions on successful scenarios of a MANET protocol. We moreover provide a bisimilarity relation with the same distinguishing...

Two new displacement potential functions are introduced for the general solution of a three-dimensional piezoelasticity problem for functionally graded transversely isotropic piezoelectric solids. The material properties vary continuously along the axis of symmetry of the medium. The four coupled equilibrium equations in terms of displacements and electric potential are reduced to two decoupled sixth- and second-order linear partial differential equations for the potential functions. The obtained results are verified with two limiting cases: (i) a functionally graded transversely isotropic medium, and (ii) a homogeneous transversely isotropic piezoelectric solid. The simplified relations...

This study deals with the elastodynamic response of a surface-stiffened transversely isotropic half-space subjected to a buried time-harmonic normal load. The half-space is reinforced by a Kirchhoff thin plate on its surface. By virtue of a displacement potential function and appropriate time-harmonic Green’s functions of transversely isotropic half-spaces, a robust solution corresponding to two plate-medium bonding assumptions, namely (a) frictionless interface, and (b) perfectly bonded interface is obtained for the first time. All elastic fields of the problem are expressed explicitly in the form of semi-infinite line integrals. Results of some limiting cases including isotropic materials,...

Diffusion of key schedule algorithm plays an important role in security of block ciphers. In this paper, we present a new approach to key schedule diffusion analysis by taking the advantages of graph theory modeling. This modeling can help to disclose the weaknesses of key schedules. In this line, the key schedule weaknesses of Twine-128 are shown and an improved key schedule is proposed. In order to make a fair comparison, some parameters are introduced to quantify the diffusion property of key schedule, and compare the results for Twine-128 with both key schedules. The results show that the new key schedule made Twine-128 stronger. Also for more reliability, the results of biclique attack...

J ; Sadjadi, S ; Outokesh, M ; Sharif University of Technology
The current study aimed at application of the plain and supported platinum nanoparticles as a heterogenous catalyst for the reduction of aromatic nitro compounds. Monodispersed platinum nanoparticles were synthesized by reduction of H2PtCl6 by ethanol in the presence of polyvinyl pyrrolidone as a stabilizer, and then were immobilized on four types of zeolites. The obtained catalyst granules were characterized by X-ray diffractometry and transmission electron microscopy. The study then focused on elaboration of the catalytic activity of the nano catalysts under different operational conditions. It was found that reaction is adequately rapid at ambient temperature, and by utilizing a...

Gold nanorods (GNRs) can be used in various biomedical applications; however, very little is known about their in vivo tissue distribution by radiolabeling. Here, we have developed a rapid and simple method with high yield and without disturbing their optical properties for radiolabeling of gold rods with iodine-131 in order to track in vivo tissue uptake of GNRs after systemic administration by biodistribution analysis and γ-imaging. Following intravenous injection into rat, PEGylated GNRs have much longer blood circulation times.
