    Horizontal Well Modeling in Naturally Fractured Reservoirs Using Dual Porosity-Dual Permeability Model

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hajimirza, Sahand (Author) ; Taghizadeh Manzari, Mehrdad (Supervisor)
    In this article, we investigate the transient pressure response and production rate of horizontal wells in a dual porosity-dual permeability naturally fractured reservoir.First, the point source solution is derived in Laplace transform space and then pressure distribution and horizontal well response is obtained using the principle of superposition. In our model, despite of dual porosity model, matrix system is directly connected to horizontal wellbore as well as fracture system and has an influence on type curves characteristics. We also showed that type curves characteristics are affected by horizontal well length, well eccentricity, external boundary conditions, permeability and storavity... 

    Modeling of point and non-point source pollution of nitrate with SWAT in the Jajrood river watershed, Iran

    , Article International Agricultural Engineering Journal ; Volume 19, Issue 2 , 2010 , Pages 23-31 ; 08582114 (ISSN) Jamshidi, M ; Tajrishy, M ; Maghrebi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    The Latian dam reservoir is one of the most important drinking water sources for Tehran, Iran. Nitrate is a major water quality problem in this reservoir. The Jajrood River, the most important water source for the reservoir, discharges large amounts of nutrients to it every year including high levels of nitrate, a pollutant of particular concern. This study presents the results obtained from simulating different point source and nonpoint source impacts on the fate and transport of nitrate in the 470 km2 Jajrood watershed using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model version 2000 (SWAT2000). The SWAT model was calibrated and validated over an extended time period (1997-2005) for this... 

    Estimation of stress drop for some large shallow earthquakes using stochastic point source and finite fault modeling

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 17, Issue 3 A , JUNE , 2010 , Pages 217-235 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Moghaddam, H ; Fanaie, N ; Motazedian, D ; Sharif University of Technology
    Using stochastic point source and finite fault modeling, the stochastic stress drop is estimated for 52 large shallow earthquakes listed in the 'Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) Next Generation Attenuation of Ground Motions (NGA)' database. The Pseudo Spectral Acceleration (PSA) of 541 accelerograms, recorded at National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) C-class sites from 52 earthquakes are simulated and compared with the PSA listed in the PEER NGA database. The magnitude of the analyzed earthquakes ranged from M4:4 to M7:6. The stress drop is calibrated by trial and error and based on the analysis of residuals where the residual is defined as the log of the... 

    Development of a 2-D 2-group neutron noise simulator for hexagonal geometries

    , Article Annals of Nuclear Energy ; Volume 37, Issue 8 , 2010 , Pages 1089-1100 ; 03064549 (ISSN) Malmir, H ; Vosoughi, N ; Zahedinejad, E ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, the development of a neutron noise simulator for hexagonal-structured reactor cores using both the forward and the adjoint methods is reported. The spatial discretisation of both 2-D 2-group static and dynamic equations is based on a developed box-scheme finite difference method for hexagonal mesh boxes. Using the power iteration method for the static calculations, the 2-group neutron flux and its adjoint with the corresponding eigenvalues are obtained by the developed static simulator. The results are then benchmarked against the well-known CITATION computer code. The dynamic calculations are performed in the frequency domain which leads to discarding of the time... 

    Diffuse emissions of particles from iron ore piles by wind erosion

    , Article Environmental Engineering Science ; Volume 28, Issue 5 , 2011 , Pages 333-339 ; 10928758 (ISSN) Afshar Mohajer, N ; Torkian, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Industrial air pollution from point and nonpoint sources of steel complexes has drawn increasingly more public attention in the past decades. Previous research efforts have been more concentrated on point sources of particulate emissions from these complexes. However, wind-induced particulate emissions from iron ore storage piles not only result in ambient air pollution but also increase economic adverse effects to the industry by loss of process raw materials. Experiments were conducted to assess the impact of wind speed and humidity on particulate emission rates from iron ore storage piles. A wind-generating system and specific iron ore, experimental piles (L:W:H of 30:11.5:5 cm) were...
