    Springer  2019
    Abstract
    Functionally graded material shafts are the main part of many modern rotary machines such as turbines and electric motors. The purpose of this study is to present an analytical solution of the elastic-plastic deformation of functionally graded material hollow rotor under a high centrifugal effect and finally determine the maximum allowed angular velocity of a hollow functionally graded material rotating shaft. Introducing non-dimensional parameters, the equilibrium equation has been analytically solved. The results for variable material properties are compared with the homogeneous rotor and the case in which Young’s modulus is the only variable while density and yield stress are considered...

    Optimal stability of a redundant mobile manipulator via genetic algorithm

    , Article Robotica ; Volume 24, Issue 6 , 2006 , Pages 739-743 ; 02635747 (ISSN) Meghdari, A ; Naderi, D ; Eslami, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    2006
    Abstract
    Once the path of the vehicle and the desired task of the end-effector are predefined, in order to apply the optimal stability criterion, the manipulator should be redundant. In this paper, the goal is to find the position, angular velocity, and angular acceleration of the redundant link of the manipulator such that the entire system becomes optimally stable. By considering the full dynamic interaction between the manipulator and its vehicle, the stability issue becomes more complex. There are some measures of stability and one of them is the tire's upward force. This measure tries to equalize the upward forces of the tires that lead to optimal stability and better steer-ability. Optimizing...

    Investigation of the Influence of Geometry and External Field on Fluid Flow Through Carbon Nanotubes by Molecular Dynamics Simulation

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Khodabakhshi, Milad (Author) ; Moosavi, Ali (Supervisor)
    Abstract
    Water transportation through carbon nanotubes is key for designing nanodevices. The directed transport of water molecules through a rotating charged carbon nanotube (CNT) is investigated by molecular dynamics simulations. It is found that the net flux of continuous unidirectional water flow depended sensitively on the charge distribution, charge density and rotation of the CNT. we find that for a constant charge density, the water flux increases with the increase of the charge difference. Besides, we find that the water flux shows a nonlinear dependence on the angular velocity of the rotation. The rotation of the CNT with low angular velocities, can not generate a continuous water flux. The...

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Vol. 21, issue. 4 , 2014 , pp. 1390-1402 ; ISSN: 10263098 Jafarian, A ; Pishevar, A ; Saidi, M. S ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    The smoothed particle hydrodynamics method is used to explore the effects of design parameters on the mixing efficiency of two types of active micromixer. First, the complex flow field and the mixing process of two separated fluids in a square mixing chamber with nine symmetric microstirrers are simulated. The influence of design parameters, such as the microstirrer rotation arrangement and the angular velocity of the microstirrer, on the mixing performance, is investigated. The mixing index parameter on ten control points is calculated and the average mixing index is compared for different cases. Simulations illustrate that the rotation arrangement of microstirrers is a key parameter in the... 

    Slipping and rolling on an inclined plane

    , Article European Journal of Physics ; Volume 32, Issue 4 , 2011 , Pages 1049-1057 ; 01430807 (ISSN) Aghamohammadi, C ; Aghamohammadi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    2011
    Abstract
    In the first part of the paper, using a direct calculation two-dimensional motion of a particle sliding on an inclined plane is investigated for general values of friction coefficient (μ). A parametric equation for the trajectory of the particle is also obtained. In the second part of the paper, the motion of a sphere on the inclined plane is studied. It is shown that the evolution equation for the contact point of a sliding sphere is similar to that of a point particle sliding on an inclined plane whose friction coefficient is 7/2 μ. If μ > 2/7 tanθ, for any arbitrary initial velocity and angular velocity, the sphere will roll on the inclined plane after some finite time. In other cases, it...

    Abstract
    The Lab On a CD (LOCD), also known as Centrifugal Microfluidics, has evolved into a sophisticated platform for performing biomedical assays due to its marvelous miniaturization and accurate simulation of biological reactions. Among the numerous applications of the LOCD is fluid mixing. In this paper a centrifugal, serpentine micromixer is simulated and reformed toward better mixing performance. The micromixer was chosen to be curved as a curved design was found to be thrice as functional and compact as a rectilinear design, mixing-wise. The two angular velocity and opening radius parameters were originally hypothesized to affect mixing performance. Effect of angular velocity was studied over...

    , Article Granular Matter ; Volume 19, Issue 4 , 2017 ; 14345021 (ISSN) Nejat Pishkenari, H ; Kaviani Rad, H ; Jafari Shad, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    In this research, we have investigated the three-dimensional elastic collision of two balls, based on friction in the tangential plane. Our aim is to offer analytical closed form relations for post collision parameters such as linear and angular velocities, collision time and tangential and normal impulse in three dimensions. To simplify the problem, stick regime is not considered. In other words, balls have a low tangential coefficient of restitution. Sliding, sliding then rolling, and rolling at the beginning of contact are three cases that can occur during impact which have been considered in our research. The normal interaction force is described by the Hertz contact force and...

    Abstract
    Spining is used in some of solid rocket motors to increase the flight trajectory precision or for stability requirements. The angular acceleration due to the spin increases the burning rate of solid propellant and changes the motor performance by increasing the operating pressure and decreasing the burning time. On the other hand, due to the rocket and its grain rotation, the gases injected from propellant surface to the flow field have an initial angular velocity. The angular velocity of each particle increases as it approaches to the center due to the conservation of angular momentum and a reduction in its radial location, although it vanishes close to the central axis due to viscous... 

    Reducing the effects of inaccurate fault estimation in spacecraft stabilization

    , Article Journal of Aerospace Technology and Management ; Volume 9, Issue 4 , 2017 , Pages 453-460 ; 19849648 (ISSN) Moradi, R ; Alikhani, A ; Fathi Jegarkandi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    Reference Governor is an important component of Active Fault Tolerant Control. One of the main reasons for using Reference Governor is to adjust/modify the reference trajectories to maintain the stability of the post-fault system, especially when a series of actuator faults occur and the faulty system can not retain the pre-fault performance. Fault estimation error and delay are important properties of Fault Detection and Diagnosis and have destructive effects on the performance of the Active Fault Tolerant Control. It is shown that, if the fault estimation provided by the Fault Detection and Diagnosis (initial “fault estimation”) is assumed to be precise (an ideal assumption), the...

    Abstract
    Finite element method has been implemented to predict stress intensity factors (SIFs) for radial cracks in annular discs under constant angular velocity. Effects of internal and external uniform pressure on the SIFs have also been considered. Linear elastic fracture mechanics finite element analyses have been performed and results are presented in the form of crack configuration factors for a wide range of components and crack geometry parameters. These parameters are chosen to be representative of typical practical situations. The extensive range of crack configuration factors obtained from the analyses is then used to develop equivalent prediction equations via a statistical multiple...

    Elsevier Ltd  2021
    Abstract
    Based on the classical Donnell's and Love's shell theories, free vibration behavior of variable-thickness thin cylindrical shells rotating with a constant angular velocity is analyzed. The equations of motion and corresponding boundary conditions of rotating homogenous cylindrical shells with axisymmetric variation of thickness are derived using Hamilton's principle. This formulation includes effects of initial hoop tension due to the centrifugal force as well as Coriolis and centrifugal accelerations. Considering the variation of stiffness coefficients in axial direction, the classical Love's theory results in a coupled system of two second-order and one fourth-order partial differential...

    ECG denoising using angular velocity as a state and an observation in an Extended Kalman Filter framework

    , Article Proceedings of the Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, EMBS ; 2012 , Pages 2897-2900 ; 1557170X (ISSN) ; 9781424441198 (ISBN) Akhbari, M ; Shamsollahi, M. B ; Jutten, C ; Coppa, B ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    In this paper an efficient filtering procedure based on Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) has been proposed. The method is based on a modified nonlinear dynamic model, previously introduced for the generation of synthetic ECG signals. The proposed method considers the angular velocity of ECG signal, as one of the states of an EKF. We have considered two cases for observation equations, in one case we have assumed a corresponding observation to angular velocity state and in the other case, we have not assumed any observations for it. Quantitative evaluation of the proposed algorithm on the MIT-BIH Normal Sinus Rhythm Database (NSRDB) shows that an average SNR improvement of 8 dB is achieved for an... 

    Rotation rate estimation in parametrically excited micro gyroscopes

    , Article Mechatronics ; Volume 31 , October , 2015 , Pages 264-275 ; 09574158 (ISSN) Fazlyab, M ; Salarieh, H ; Alasty, A ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    This paper reports the estimation of angular velocity in micro gyroscopes with parametric excitation. The identification procedure is done into two consecutive steps: In the first step, the physical parameters of the gyroscope (stiffness, damping, and actuator parameters) are estimated via continuous time Extended and Unscented Kalman filter. In the second step, a separate Kalman filter is dedicated to estimate the time varying rotation rate, using the output of the first step. Using numerical simulations, it is found that by introducing an artificial noise in the observer equations and tuning its variance, arbitrary temporal variation of angular velocity can be well tracked by the proposed...

    Abstract
    We study the dynamics of a conducting fluid carrying (i) a uniform current in the presence of a non-uniform magnetic field or (ii) carrying a non-uniform current in the presence of a uniform magnetic field, using particle image velocimetry (PIV). Our results show that the average angular velocity of the induced rotation has a power-law dependence on the electric current passing through the fluid with an exponent ≈2/3, in excellent agreement with our simulation results, for the same system. To explain the experimental observations we explore all possibilities for inducing rotation in a fluid carrying an electric current. Our theoretical discussion indicates two scenarios wherein applying...
