    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... 

    Gorgan Bay Water Salinity Modeling under the Scenario of Water Transfer from Caspian Sea by Pipeline

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Neysari, Ali Naser (Author) ; Raie, Mohamad (Supervisor)
    Gorgan Bay and Miankaleh Wetland have been exposed to various environmental risks in the past years due to the decrease in the Caspian water level and the subsequent decrease in the water level of these water bodies. 2 channels, Chapgoli and Ashuradeh, are the only ways connecting the Gulf with the Caspian Sea. If the water level of the Caspian Sea and the Gulf continue to decrease, these 2 channels will be completely blocked and the connection between the Gulf and the sea will be completely closed. Due to the low depth of the bay and high evaporation on this water body, the blockage of these 2 channels will eventually lead to drying up of the bay or changing the flora and fauna of the area.... 

    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... 

    Model Predictive Control of an Autonomous Semi-Submersible Vehicle for Depth Control

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Amin Hatamy, Erfan (Author) ; Nejat Pishkenari, Hossein (Supervisor) ; Salarieh, Hassan (Supervisor)
    In the past few decades, with the advancement of technology, using autonomous robots has been receiving growing interest. Autonomous semi-submersible vehicles are a subset of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV). This type of vehicle operates near the surface of the water and is semi-submerged. Nonlinear coupled dynamics, structural uncertainties, model parameters dependency to robot velocity, external disturbances, and model constraints are AUV’s workspace challenges. For this reason, depth control of these vehicles in the presence of environmental disturbances is crucial. However, MPC as one of the advanced control methods in the field of robotics is increasingly developing. This control...
