    Forming Limit Diagrams are useful tools for evaluation of formability in the sheet metals. In this paper the effects of yield criteria on predictions of the right and left-hand sides of forming limit diagrams (FLDs) are investigated. In prediction of FLD, Hosford 1979, "Karafillis-Boyce" (K-B) and BBC2000 anisotropy yield functions have been applied. Whereas the prediction of FLD is based on the "Marciniak and Kuczynski" model, thus a numerical approach using the Newton-Raphson method has been used. Forming Limit Diagrams have been obtained for Al 6111-T4 and AA5XXX alloys and results have been compared with published experimental data. Results indicate that predictions of FLD are very... 

    Study of microstructural growth under cyclic martensite phase transition in shape memory alloys; A molecular dynamics approach

    , Article Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures ; 2021 ; 1045389X (ISSN) Moravej, S. A ; Taghibakhshi, A ; Nejat Pishkenari, H ; Arghavani, J ; Sharif University of Technology

    Shape memory alloys are referred to as a group of alloys that can retrieve the permanent deformation and strain applied to them and eventually return to their original form. So far, various studies have been done to determine the behavior of these alloys under cyclic loading. Most of the studies have mainly been conducted by using the foundations of Continuum Mechanics in order to examine the properties of memory alloys. In this study, instead of using the Continuum Mechanics, a Molecular Dynamics simulation method using Lennard-Jones potential is utilized. The changes in the behavior and properties of memory alloy under cyclic loading are being examined. First, the functional form... 

    RKKY interaction in heavily vacant graphene

    , Article Journal of Physics Condensed Matter ; Volume 25, Issue 37 , August , 2013 ; 09538984 (ISSN) Habibi, A ; Jafari, S. A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Dirac electrons in clean graphene can mediate the interactions between two localized magnetic moments. The functional form of the RKKY interaction in pristine graphene is specified by two main features: (i) an atomic-scale oscillatory part determined by a wavevector → connecting the two valleys; with doping another longer range oscillation appears which arises from the existence of an extended Fermi surface characterized by a momentum scale kF; (ii) an algebraic Rα decay in large distances where the exponent α=-3 is a distinct feature of undoped Dirac sea in two dimensions. In this work, we investigate the effect of a few per cent vacancies on the above properties. Depending on the doping... 

    An accurate equation of state for fluids and solids

    , Article Journal of Physical Chemistry B ; Volume 113, Issue 35 , 2009 , Pages 11977-11987 ; 15206106 (ISSN) Parsafar, G. A ; Spohr, H. V ; Patey, G. N ; Sharif University of Technology

    A simple functional form for a general equation of state based on an effective near-neighbor pair interaction of an extended Lennard-Jones (12,6,3) type is given and tested against experimental data for a wide variety of fluids and solids. Computer simulation results for ionic liquids are used for further evaluation. For fluids, there appears to be no upper density limitation on the equation of state. The lower density limit for isotherms near the critical temperature is the critical density. The equation of state gives a good description of all types of fluids, nonpolar (including long-chain hydrocarbons), polar, hydrogen-bonded, and metallic, at temperatures ranging from the triple point... 

    Fuzzy image segmentation using membership connectedness

    , Article Eurasip Journal on Advances in Signal Processing ; Volume 2008 , 2008 ; 16876172 (ISSN) Kasaei, S ; Hasanzadeh, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Fuzzy connectedness and fuzzy clustering are two well-known techniques for fuzzy image segmentation. The former considers the relation of pixels in the spatial space but does not inherently utilize their feature information. On the other hand, the latter does not consider the spatial relations among pixels. In this paper, a new segmentation algorithm is proposed in which these methods are combined via a notion called membership connectedness. In this algorithm, two kinds of local spatial attractions are considered in the functional form of membership connectedness and the required seeds can be selected automatically. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated using a developed...
