    Dynamic responses of a rectangular plate under motion of an oscillator using a semi-analytical method

    , Article JVC/Journal of Vibration and Control ; Volume 17, Issue 9 , 2011 , Pages 1310-1324 ; 10775463 (ISSN) Ghafoori, E ; Kargarnovin, M. H ; Ghahremani, A. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    A semi-analytical method is presented to calculate the dynamic responses of a rectangular plate due to a moving oscillator. In previous analytical solutions of the moving oscillator problem, the elastic distributed structure has usually been modeled by an elastic beam structure. This restrictive assumption is removed in this study by assuming a general plate as two-dimensional elastic distributed structure. The method can be applied for any arbitrary path on the plate. A combination of the Fourier and Laplace transformation as well as the convolution theorem is used to solve the governing differential equations of the problem. A modified integration technique is then presented to solve the...

    Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the prevalent reason of mortality all around the world. Targeting CAD, specifically atherosclerosis, with controlled delivery of micro and nanoparticles, as drug carriers, is a very proficient approach. In this work, a patient-specific and realistic model of an atherosclerotic plaque in the left anterior descending (LAD) artery was created by image-processing of CT-scan images and implementing a finite-element mesh. Next, a fluid-solid interaction simulation considering the physiological boundary conditions was conducted. By considering the simulated force fields and particle-particle interactions, the correlation between injected particles at each cardiac... 

    Dynamic analysis of laminated composite plates traversed by a moving mass based on a first-order theory

    , Article Composite Structures ; Volume 92, Issue 8 , 2010 , Pages 1865-1876 ; 02638223 (ISSN) Ghafoori, E ; Asghari, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    The dynamic response of angle-ply laminated composite plates traversed by a moving mass or a moving force is investigated. For this purpose, a finite element method based on the first-order shear deformation theory is used. Stationary and adaptive mesh techniques have been applied as two different meshing schemes. The adaptive mesh strategy is then used to avoid off-nodal position of moving mass. In this manner, the finite element mesh is continuously adapted to follow and comply with the path of moving mass. A Newmark direct integration method is employed to solve the equations of motion. Parametric study is directed to find out how different parameters like mass of the moving object as... 

    Hydro-mechanical modeling of two-phase fluid flow in deforming, partially saturated porous media with propagating cohesive cracks using the extended finite element method

    , Article Computational Plasticity XI - Fundamentals and Applications, COMPLAS XI, 7 September 2011 through 9 September 2011 ; September , 2011 , Pages 1516-1527 ; 9788489925731 (ISBN) Mohammadnejad, T ; Khoei, A. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In the present paper, a fully coupled numerical model is developed for the hydromechanical analysis of deforming, progressively fracturing porous media interacting with the flow of two immiscible, compressible wetting and non-wetting pore fluids. The governing equations involving the coupled two-phase fluid flow and deformation processes in partially saturated porous media containing cohesive cracks are derived within the framework of the generalized Biot theory. The displacement of the solid phase, the pressure of the wetting phase and the capillary pressure are taken as the primary unknowns of the three-phase formulation. A softening cohesive law is employed to describe the nonlinear...
