    A higher-order two-dimensional Boussinesq wave model

    , Article Journal of Coastal Research ; Issue SPEC. ISSUE 50 , 2007 , Pages 1183-1187 ; 07490208 (ISSN) Ataie Ashtiani, B ; Najafi Jilani, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    A two-dimensional Boussinesq-type model is presented accurate to O(μ)6 , μ = h0/l0, in dispersion and all consequential order for non-linearity with arbitrary bottom boundary, where h0 is the water depth and l0 is the characteristic wave length. The mathematical formulation is an extension of (4,4) the Padé approximant to include varying bottom boundary in two horizontal dimensions. A higher order perturbation method is used for mathematical derivation of the presented model. A two horizontal dimension numerical model is developed based on derived equations using the Finite Difference Method in higher-order scheme for time and space. The numerical wave model is verified successfully in... 

    The effect of higher order harmonics on second order nonlinear phenomena

    A new method which is a combination of the harmonic balance and finite difference techniques (HBFD) is proposed for complete time-harmonic solution of the nonlinear wave equation. All interactions between different harmonics up to an arbitrary order can be incorporated. The effect of higher order harmonics on two important nonlinear optical phenomena, namely, the second harmonic generation (SHG) and frequency mixing is investigated by this method and the results are compared with well-known analytical solutions. The method is quite general and can be used to study wave propagation in all nonlinear media  

    Numerical and experimental evaluation of high-intensity focused ultrasound-induced lesions in liver tissue ex vivo

    , Article Journal of ultrasound in medicine : official journal of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine ; Volume 37, Issue 6 , 2018 , Pages 1481-1491 ; 15509613 (ISSN) Haddadi, S ; Ahmadian, M. T ; Sharif University of Technology
    OBJECTIVES: Recent advances in the field of acoustics and piezoelectric and ultrasound transducers have led to new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of certain diseases. One method of treatment with ultrasonic waves is high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment, which is a thermal therapeutic method used to treat malignant tumors. Although a variety of treatment-planning strategies using ultrasonic waves have been investigated, little clinical success has been achieved. Computational modeling is a powerful tool for predicting device performance. METHODS: The heating induced by a concave transducer with operating powers of 85 and 135 W was studied, and the experimental results... 

    Laboratory investigations on impulsive waves caused by underwater landslide

    , Article Coastal Engineering ; Volume 55, Issue 12 , December , 2008 , Pages 989-1004 ; 03783839 (ISSN) Ataie Ashtiani, B ; Najafi Jilani, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Laboratory investigations have been performed on the submarine landslide generated waves by performing 120 laboratory tests. Both rigid and deforming-slide masses are considered. The effects of bed slope angle, initial submergence, slide geometry, shape and deformation on impulse wave characteristics have been inspected. Impulse wave amplitude, period, energy and nonlinearity are studied in this work. The effects of bed slope angle on energy conversion from slide into wave are also investigated. Laboratory-based prediction equations are presented for impulse wave amplitude and period in near and far-field and are successfully verified using the available data in previous laboratory and... 

    A novel numerical solution to the diffraction term in the KZK nonlinear wave equation

    , Article Proceedings of the 38th Annual Symposium of Ultrasonic Industry Association, UIA 2009, 23 March 2009 through 25 March 2009, Vancouver, BC ; 2009 ; 9781424464296 (ISBN) Hajihasani, M ; Farjami, Y ; Gharibzadeh, S ; Tavakkoli, J ; Sharif University of Technology
    Nonlinear ultrasound modeling is finding an increasing number of applications in both medical and industrial areas where due to high pressure amplitudes the effects of nonlinear propagation are no longer negligible. Taking nonlinear effects into account makes the ultrasound beam analysis more accurate in these applications. One of the most widely used nonlinear models for propagation of 3D diffractive sound beams in dissipative media is the KZK (Khokhlov, Kuznetsov, Zabolotskaya) parabolic nonlinear wave equation. Various numerical algorithms have been developed to solve the KZK equation. Generally, these algorithms fall into one of three main categories: frequency domain, time domain and... 

    Analysis of nonlinear acoustic wave propagation in HIFU treatment using westervelt equation

    Currently, the HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) therapy method is known as one of the most advanced surgical techniques of tumor ablation therapy. Simulation of the non-linear acoustic wave and tissue interaction is essential in HIFU planning to improve the usefulness and efficiency of treatment. In this paper, linear, thermoviscous, and nonlinear equations are applied using two different media: liver and water. Transducer power of 8.3-134 Watts with the frequency of 1.1 MHz is considered as the range of study to analyze the interaction of wave and tissue. Results indicate that the maximum focal pressure of about 0.5-4.3 MPa can be achieved for transducer power rates of 8.3 to 134 W.... 

    Passive devices for wave induced vibration control in offshore steel jacket platforms

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 16, Issue 6 A , 2009 , Pages 443-456 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Golafshani, A. A ; Gholizad, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Performances of tuned mass dampers and friction dampers to mitigate the wave induced vibrations in jacket type offshore platforms have been compared in this study. Due to the random nature of ocean waves, a full stochastic analysis method has been used to evaluate the response of the structures equipped with these devices. A stochastic linearization technique has been used to take the nonlinear behavior of friction dampers into account. The developed mathematical formulation has been applied to evaluate the response of realistic models, and to find out the optimal values for the adjustable parameters of friction dampers. The results have been verified in comparison with time domain nonlinear...
