    Three-dimensional analysis of piezocomposite plates with arbitrary geometry and boundary conditions

    , Article International Journal of Solids and Structures ; Volume 40, Issue 18 , 2003 , Pages 4837-4858 ; 00207683 (ISSN) Shodja, H. M ; Kamali, M. T ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier Ltd  2003
    In this paper, an accurate series solution in conjunction with an energy formulation for the treatment of piezocomposite plates with arbitrary geometry and aspect ratio, under both electrical and mechanical loadings are proposed. A remedy for dealing with nonhomogeneous boundary conditions is also presented. Through introduction of amending polynomials of order pk for the kth layer, the accuracy and convergence rate are dramatically improved. These polynomials ensure continuity of the generalized displacement fields across the interfaces, while their derivatives can have the required discontinuities up to a desired order. Moreover, depending on the nature of the physical problem under...

    In this paper, nonlinear dynamic analysis of concrete gravity dams was studied. To investigate the effect of dam-reservoir-foundation interaction, a two-dimensional approach was used including the finite element method, and smeared crack approach. The dam-reservoir interaction is solved by staggered solution procedure while the Sharan boundary condition is applied at the reservoir's far-end truncated boundary. The foundation is defined as a part of the structure and some different boundary conditions such as Lysmer, Boulder and damper boundary conditions are applied at its truncated boundaries. Results show that when the nonlinear analysis includes the dam - foundation interaction and the... 

    Preconditioned characteristic boundary conditions for solution of the preconditioned Euler equations at low Mach number flows

    , Article Journal of Computational Physics ; Volume 231, Issue 12 , 2012 , Pages 4384-4402 ; 00219991 (ISSN) Hejranfar, K ; Kamali Moghadam, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    Preconditioned characteristic boundary conditions (BCs) are implemented at artificial boundaries for the solution of the two- and three-dimensional preconditioned Euler equations at low Mach number flows. The preconditioned compatibility equations and the corresponding characteristic variables (or the Riemann invariants) based on the characteristic forms of preconditioned Euler equations are mathematically derived for three preconditioners proposed by Eriksson, Choi and Merkle, and Turkel. A cell-centered finite volume Roe's method is used for the discretization of the preconditioned system of equations on unstructured meshes. The accuracy and performance of the preconditioned characteristic... 

    Various boundary condition implementation to study microfilters using DSMC simulation

    , Article ASME 2010 International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition, IMECE 2010, Vancouver, BC, 12 November 2010 through 18 November 2010 ; Volume 2 , 2010 , Pages 433-442 ; 9780791844267 (ISBN) Darbandi, M ; Akhlaghi, H ; Karchani, A ; Vakili, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this study, we present a vast boundary condition treatment to simulate gas flow through microfilters using direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method. We examine the effects of different boundary condition treatments on the density, pressure, and velocity distributions and suggest the best conditions to simulate gas flow through microfilters. We also refine the effects of upstream and downstream locations on the solution. The results show that uniform distributions can be achieved if we apply the inlet/outlet boundary condition at appropriate upstream and downstream distances. We also show that all the suggested boundary conditions suitably predict the pressure drop coefficient factor... 

    A lagged implicit segregated data reconstruction procedure to treat open boundaries

    , Article Journal of Computational Physics ; Volume 229, Issue 14 , July , 2010 , Pages 5418-5431 ; 00219991 (ISSN) Sani, M ; Saidi, M. S ; Sharif University of Technology
    The problem of treating open boundaries is still a challenging one. Applying fully developed condition is constrained to long enough domains. Without having enough physical evidence about what happens on boundaries, the domain extent could not be shortened and computational costs could not be reduced. From the advent of free (open) boundary conditions, they were confined to mixed finite element procedures. Recent works have extended their application to coupled finite volume solvers based on the shape function data reconstruction. A wider class of flow solvers available, however, rely on the segregated procedure where the velocity components and pressure are solved in succession. Moreover,... 

    The singular sources method for an inverse problem with mixed boundary conditions

    , Article Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications ; Volume 306, Issue 1 , 2005 , Pages 122-135 ; 0022247X (ISSN) Fotouhi, M ; Hesaaraki, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    We use the singular sources method to detect the shape of the obstacle in a mixed boundary value problem. The basic idea of the method is based on the singular behavior of the scattered field of the incident point-sources on the boundary of the obstacle. Moreover we take advantage of the scattered field estimate by the backprojection operator. Also we give a uniqueness proof for the shape reconstruction. © 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved  

    Accurate determination of interlaminar stresses in general cross-ply laminates

    , Article Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures ; Volume 11, Issue 1 , 2004 , Pages 67-92 ; 15376494 (ISSN) Tahani, M ; Nosier, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Reddy's layerwise theory is used to investigate analytically the interlaminar stresses near the free edges of general (unsymmetric and symmetric) cross-ply composite laminates with various boundary conditions subjected to mechanical and hygrothermal loadings. Laminates with finite dimensions are considered and full three-dimensional stresses in the interior and the boundary-layer regions are calculated. The results obtained from this theory are compared with those available in the literature. It is found that the theory can predict very accurately the stresses in the interior region and near the free edges of both finite and long laminates  

    A note on the resonant interaction between a surface wave and two interfacial waves

    , Article Journal of Fluid Mechanics ; Volume 491 , 2003 , Pages 1-9 ; 00221120 (ISSN) Jamali, M ; Lawrence, G. A ; Seymour, B ; Sharif University of Technology
    Cambridge University Press  2003
    Hill & Foda (1998) and Jamali (1998) have presented theoretical and experimental studies of the resonant interaction between a surface wave and two oblique interfacial waves. Despite many similarities between the findings there is one seemingly major difference. Hill & Foda's (1998) analysis indicated that there are only narrow bands of frequency, density ratio and direction angle within which growth is possible. On the other hand, Jamali (1998) predicted and observed wave growth over wide ranges of frequency and direction angle, and for all the density ratios that he investigated. We show that Hill & Foda's (1998) second-order representation of the dynamic interfacial boundary condition is...

    Concrete dams are one of the most important infrastructures in every country and the seismic safety assessment of them is a major task in dam engineering field. Dam–foundation–reservoir system analysis is a complex interaction problem because this system consists of three domains with different behaviors. For accurate analysis of this system, some important factors should be considered such as foundation mass and earthquake input mechanism. In this paper, the effect of foundation mass and earthquake input mechanism on seismic response of concrete gravity dam is investigated. For this purpose, two different methods are introduced for modeling of massed semi-infinite foundation in finite... 

    Development of a consistent slip boundary condition at the inlet of microchannels

    , Article 44th AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting 2006, Reno, NV, 9 January 2006 through 12 January 2006 ; Volume 10 , 2006 , Pages 7087-7096 ; 1563478072 (ISBN); 9781563478079 (ISBN) Darbandi, M ; Vakilipour, S ; Schneider, G. E ; Sharif University of Technology
    The fast progress in Microelectromechanical systems has drawn the attention of many numerical workers to provide sufficient numerical tools to analyze the micro flows accurately. Besides many ambiguities behind the slip boundary condition research which are normally encountered in the vicinity of the solid walls (and are necessary to provide the suitable bridge between the macro and micro behaviors), there are serious uncertainties at the inlet of channels where the microflow enters into the conduit. Indeed, the macro inlet flow have been long investigated by the past workers; however, there is little effort to clarify the issue in micro inlet flow cases. In this research, we utilize the... 

    Gaseous slip flow mixed convection in vertical microducts with constant axial energy input

    , Article Journal of Heat Transfer ; Vol. 136, issue. 3 , 2014 ; ISSN: 00221481 Sadeghi, A ; Baghani, M ; Saidi, M. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    The present investigation is devoted to the fully developed slip flow mixed convection in vertical microducts of two different cross sections, namely, polygon, with circle as a limiting case, and rectangle. The two axially constant heat flux boundary conditions of H1 and H2 are considered in the analysis. The velocity and temperature discontinuities at the boundary are incorporated into the solutions using the first-order slip boundary conditions. The method considered is mainly analytical in which the governing equations in cylindrical coordinates along with the symmetry conditions and finiteness of the flow parameter at the origin are exactly satisfied. The first-order slip boundary...

    , Article Mechanics Based Design of Structures and Machines ; Volume 42, Issue 1 , 2 January , 2014 , Pages 97-110 ; ISSN: 15397734 Ghannadiasl, A ; Mofid, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents the dynamic response of uniform Timoshenko beams with arbitrary boundary conditions using Dynamic Green Function. An exact and direct modeling technique is stated to model beam structures with arbitrary boundary conditions subjected to the external load that is an arbitrary function of time t and coordinate x and the concentrated moving load. This technique is based on the Dynamic Green Function. The effect of different boundary conditions, load, and other parameters is assessed. Finally, some numerical examples are shown to illustrate the efficiency and simplicity of the new formulation based on the Dynamic Green Function

    , Article Microfluidics and Nanofluidics ; Vol. 16, issue. 1-2 , 2014 , pp. 207-224 ; ISSN: 16134982 Sadeghi, M ; Sadeghi, A ; Saidi, M. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Consideration is given to the buoyancy effects on the fully developed gaseous slip flow in a vertical rectangular microduct. Two different cases of the thermal boundary conditions are considered, namely uniform temperature at two facing duct walls with different temperatures and adiabatic other walls (case A) and uniform heat flux at two walls and uniform temperature at other walls (case B). The rarefaction effects are treated using the firstorder slip boundary conditions. By means of finite Fourier transform method, analytical solutions are obtained for the velocity and temperature distributions as well as the Poiseuille number. Furthermore, the threshold value of the mixed convection... 

    Gaseous slip flow forced convection in microducts of arbitrary but constant cross section

    , Article Nanoscale and Microscale Thermophysical Engineering ; Vol. 18, issue. 4 , 2014 , p. 354-372 Baghani, M ; Sadeghi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    This is a theoretical study that extends a classical method of treating the convection heat transfer in complex geometries to gaseous slip flow forced convection in microchannels with H1 thermal boundary condition. Through this line, the momentum and energy equations in cylindrical coordinates are made dimensionless. Afterward, solutions are presented that exactly satisfy the dimensionless differential equations along with the symmetry condition and finiteness of the flow parameter at the origin. The first-order slip boundary conditions are then applied to the solution utilizing the least squares matching method. Though the method is general enough to be applied to almost any arbitrary cross...

    During the year, due to weather conditions, the temperature fluctuations at surface level cause problems in underground pipes as a result of freezing water. One of the best prevention strategies is the use of polyurethane floor insulation for keeping the temperature of clay above zero degrees Celsius. In this study to calculate the minimum thickness of polyurethane insulation layer, the differential equation of energy is solved based on principle of separation of variables using imaginary eigenvalues for consistency with the temperature distribution in multi-layer consist of asphalt, gravel and polyurethane with finite thickness and clay as a semiinfinite medium with periodic thermal...

    This paper deals with the blow-up phenomena for a system of parabolic equations with nonlinear boundary conditions. We show that under some conditions on the nonlinearities, blow-up occurs at some finite time. We also obtain upper and lower bounds for the blow-up time when blow-up occurs. Copyright
