Using the direct simulation Monte Carlo method to study the effect of wall temperature variation on gas mixing evolution through micro T-mixers, Article 11th International Energy Conversion Engineering Conference ; 2013 ; Sabouri, M ; Lekzian, E ; Schneider, G. E ; Sharif University of Technology
In this work, we study the gas mixing behavior in a micro T-mixer using the direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method. The gas mixing process is monitored through a T-mixer, which is fed by two different CO and N2 gases; flowing into the T-mixer through the upper and lower inlets. We investigate the effects of axial and lateral wall temperature gradients on the mixing evolution at different rarefaction levels. The achieved results show that any temperature difference between the channel walls would result in an increase in mixing length for the chosen wall temperature gradient ranges and the studies pressure cases. Our observations show that a positive temperature gradient toward the...
Dynamic impedance functions of machine foundations on sandy soils by physical model tests, Article Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering: The Academia and Practice of Geotechnical Engineering, 5 October 2009 through 9 October 2009, Alexandria ; Volume 1 , 2009 , Pages 478-481 ; 9781607500315 (ISBN) ; Mashhadi, H.

In order to improve new methods of design of machine foundations by means of impedance function, implementation of experimental investigations to calibrate these methods is vital. The physical model tests were carried out in a steel container with dimension of 1×1×0.9 m. The Babolsar sand was employed in the model. To eliminate reflection of elastic waves, a sawdust layer was used in the lateral walls and bottom of the container. Also, in order to have homogeneous medium with unified density, air pluviation of sand method was employed. Response of the models to harmonic excitations was measured using various instruments deployed around the foundation. Results of the tests are shown in the...
