    Toward a new analyzable architectural description language based on OSAN

    , Article 2nd International Conference on Software Engineering Advances - ICSEA 2007, Cap Esterel, 25 August 2007 through 31 August 2007 ; 2007 ; 0769529372 (ISBN); 9780769529370 (ISBN) Kamandi, A ; Habibi, J ; Sharif University of Technology
    In the last two decades, a number of architecture-based software development notations, methods, techniques, and tools were formulated. Of particular interest to the software architecture researchers and practitioners were the notations and languages for modeling software architectures, known as ADLs. Object Stochastic Activity Network (OSAN) is a new model which inherits useful features from Petri nets, stochastic activity networks and queue networks, which made it a powerful and flexible tool to model concurrent systems and evaluate and verify them. This paper introduces OSAN as a new analyzable architecture description language, which can be used both for modeling architectural aspects of... 

    Iran atlas of offshore renewable energies

    , Article Renewable Energy ; Volume 36, Issue 1 , January , 2011 , Pages 388-398 ; 09601481 (ISSN) Abbaspour, M ; Rahimi, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    The aim of the present study is to provide an Atlas of IRAN Offshore Renewable Energy Resources (hereafter called 'the Atlas') to map out wave and tidal resources at a national scale, extending over the area of the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman. Such an Atlas can provide necessary tools to identify the areas with greatest resource potential and within reach of present technology development. To estimate available tidal energy resources at the site, a two-dimensional tidally driven hydrodynamic numerical model of Persian Gulf was developed using the hydrodynamic model in the MIKE 21 Flow Model (MIKE 21HD), with validation using tidal elevation measurements and tidal stream diamonds from...
