    Applying ultrasonic vibration to decrease drilling-induced delamination in GFRP laminates

    , Article Procedia CIRP, Leuven ; Volume 6 , April , 2013 , Pages 577-582 ; 22128271 (ISSN) Mehbudi, P ; Baghlani, V ; Akbari, J ; Bushroa, A. R ; Mardi, N. A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Delamination is a major problem in drilling of fiber-reinforced composite materials. Thrust force is an important factor leading to propagation of delamination during drilling process. One of effective methods to reduce machining forces is application of ultrasonic vibrations. In this study ultrasonic assisted drilling is applied to reduce thrust force in drilling of GFRP laminates. In order to conduct experiments a setup is designed and fabricated to apply both vibrations and rotation to drill bits. Using Taguchi method, a set of experiments is conducted with feed rate, spindle speed, and ultrasonic vibration amplitude as control factors. The results show that applying ultrasonic vibration... 

    A study of the electrophoretic deposition of Bioglass® suspensions using the Taguchi experimental design approach

    , Article Journal of the European Ceramic Society ; Volume 30, Issue 14 , October , 2010 , Pages 2963-2970 ; 09552219 (ISSN) Pishbin, F ; Simchi, A ; Ryan, M. P ; Boccaccini, A. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents a study of the Taguchi design method to optimise the rate of electrophoretic deposition (EPD) of Bioglass® particles from aqueous suspensions. The effect of Bioglass® concentration, pH and electric field was investigated. An orthogonal array of L16 type with mixed levels of the control factors was utilized. Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) and regression analysis based on the partial least-square method were used to identify the significant factors affecting the deposition rate and its stability during constant-voltage EPD. It was found that the pH of the suspension significantly influences the deposition rate whereas the applied electric field has the smallest...

    Monthly mean satellite derived Chl-a, aerosols, wind, SST, PAR, and turbidity datasets were used to investigate the possible factors regulating phytoplankton variability in the Persian Gulf. The spatial correlation analysis revealed two distinct regions of SST and PAR, and a relatively uniform spatial correlation pattern of the other parameters. The cross correlation between aeolian dusts and Chl-a was significantly positive with 1–3 months offset. The pattern of spatial correlation between Chl-a and SST was positive in the shallow regions without time lag, and was negative with time offset of 3–5 months in deeper regions. The cross correlation between Chl-a and north-ward winds were... 

    Microstructure-properties relationship of TLP-bonded GTD-111 nickel-base superalloy

    , Article Materials Science and Engineering A ; Volume 490, Issue 1-2 , 25 August , 2008 , Pages 229-234 ; 09215093 (ISSN) Pouranvari, M ; Ekrami, A ; Kokabi, A. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties of transient liquid phase-bonded joints of GTD-111 nickel-base superalloy using a Ni-Si-B interlayer was investigated. Shear strength and hardness profile of the joints were discussed with respect to the bond microstructure. In the bonding condition, in which isothermal solidification has not been accomplished completely, eutectic constituent which has the highest hardness in the bond region is the preferential failure source. Additionally, it was found that when isothermal solidification is completed, the extent of γ′ formation in the bond region is the controlling factor for joint strength. Shear strength of bonds after... 

    Sea-level rise impacts on seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers: review and integration

    , Article Journal of Hydrology ; Volume 535 , 2016 , Pages 235-255 ; 00221694 (ISSN) Ketabchi, H ; Mahmoodzadeh, D ; Ataie Ashtiani, B ; Simmons, C. T ; Sharif University of Technology
    Sea-level rise (SLR) influences groundwater hydraulics and in particular seawater intrusion (SWI) in many coastal aquifers. The quantification of the combined and relative impacts of influential factors on SWI has not previously been considered in coastal aquifers. In the present study, a systematic review of the available literature on this topic is first provided. Then, the potential remaining challenges are scrutinized. Open questions on the effects of more realistic complexities such as gradual SLR, parameter uncertainties, and the associated influences in decision-making models are issues requiring further investigation.We assess and quantify the seawater toe location under the impacts...
