    Electrodeposition of Ag-Pd Alloy for Enhancing Corrosion Resistance

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Yari, Mohammad Hossein (Author) ; Dolati, Abolghasem (Supervisor)
    Silver is a resistant metal against the oxidation under normal atmospheric conditions, but it reacts readily with sulfur bearing species in the environment and corrodes. Alloying silver with more noble elements, such as Palladium, is a promising approach for increasing corrosion resistance against the sulfur pollutants. The purpose of this research is to develop a plating bath for deposition of Silver-Palladium alloy with acceptable appearance and higher corrosion resistance than pure silver. For this purpose, a bath based on thiosulfate complexing agent was investigated. In this solution, with a bath containing 10 mM of each cation, deposits with palladium content of 6, 11 and 14 % were...

    Study of TLP Bonding of Al/SiC Composite Using Coated Interlayer

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Goodarzi, Shahin (Author) ; Ekrami, Ali Akbar (Supervisor) ; Seyyed Reihani, Morteza (Supervisor)
    TLP diffusion bonding method refers to a method in which two metal pieces can be bonded by putting an interlayer between two pieces and heating to a temperature lower than base metal melting point. Theoretically, this process shows that the bonding line disappears completely at the end of the process and it is not possible to recognize it. However, these assumptions were not accomplished in practice. Therefore, various parameters such as material of interlayer, thickness of interlayer, temperature and time of bonding, temperature and time of homogenizing and applied pressure on metal pieces should be controlled to achieve the best shearing strength results. Aluminum based composites have...

    In several electro-optic and optoelectronic devices, we require the structures with simultaneous high electrical conductivity and optical transparency so as to transmit the incident light. Transparent Conductive Electrodes (TCEs) that are both highly conductive and transparent were introduced to be an answer to the mentioned challenge. Periodic arrays of metallic holes are amongst the most important structures that are used as transparent electrodes. Using the metals with low electrical resistivity, such as Au and Ag, provides these structures with high electrical conductance. On the other hand, since these micro/nano structures support the propagation of guided electromagnetic waves, light...

    This study investigated the effect of oxidized molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) nanosheets on the anti-corrosion and rheological properties of epoxy resin. Raw MoS2 sheets were obtained as layered nanosheets with a thickness of 50 to 100 nm using acid washing, oxidation, and heat shock methods. The use of nanoparticle characterization tests such as XRD, FT-IR, FE-SEM, EDS, and TGA supports this claim. Then, in the next step, epoxy coatings containing different percentages (0, 0.3, 0.5, 0.8, and 1.5 wt%) of MoS2 nanosheets were prepared with polyamide hardener to investigate the effect of adding nanosheets and the optimal percentage. The best effect on the corrosion properties of the coating in a...

    Iron oxide nanoparticles were synthesized using microemulsion technique as MRI contrast agents. Utilization of nanoparticles for biological applications and in this case as MRI contrast agents needs particles to be of small size and also narrow size distribution. For this aim, the effect of several parameters on size and size distribution has been studied. These parameters include water/surfactant ratio, precursor’s concentration and amount of polymer employed to improve nanoparticles colloidal stability. XRD, FE-SEM and TEM results reveal that the synthesized nanoparticles had small size (about 10 nm iron oxide core and 20 nm overall diameter) and possessed narrow size distribution (15-21...

Extensive research has been carried out on the structures resistance against earthquake up to now. Although, the vast amount of research has resulted various regulations and guidelines, there is still a long way ahead to achieve the desirable results. Due to high sensitivity of the steel to temperature variations, fire exposure is more destructive for steel structures compared with the concrete ones. The performance of an intermediate three-storey steel moment frame with 4 spans was studied in this...

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Vahdatkhah, Parisa (Author) ; Sadrnezhaad, Khatiboleslam (Supervisor)
    This research is divided in three parts. In the first part of this research, we report the one-pot synthesis of carbonate-coated nanostructured LLO (Li2CO3@LLO) through a polyol-assisted method as a Li-ion battery cathode. Carbonate protects the cathode from adverse reactions with the electrolyte, also reduces the layered-to-spinel phase transition, thereby stabilizing the cathode structure. LLO nanostructure provides a fast Li+ diffusion. The target material exhibits excellent long-term stability with 77% capacity retention after 1000 cycles at 0.2C-rate. In the second part of research, Li(Na-doped)-Mn-Ni-O oxides were synthesized by different LiOH.H2O amount, type and amount of reducing... 

    Behavior of Composites Containing Multi-coated Nano-fibers with Interfacial Damage in Couple Stress Theory

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Hashemian, Behdad (Author) ; Mohammadi Shodja, Hossein (Supervisor)
    It is well-known that classical continuum theory has certain deficiencies in capturing the size effects and predicting the nanoscopic behavior of materials in the vicinity of nano-inhomogeneities and nano-defects with reasonable accuracy. Couple stress theory which is associated with an internal length scale for the medium is one of the higher order continuum theories capable of overcoming such difficulties. Since most reinforcements may not be perfectly bonded to their surrounding matrix, the perfect bonding condition is often inadequate in describing the physical and mechanical behavior of real composite materials. In this work, the problem of a nano-size fiber embedded in an unbounded...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hadinejad Sheikh, Farshad (Author) ; Afshar, Abdollah (Supervisor)
    It has always been a challenge to make self-cleaning coatings based on super-hydrophobic properties that can provide the necessary features to be operational in the industry. One of these necessary features is the ability to easily apply the coating on the substrate and reduce the cost by finding the optimal amount of consumables. Therefore, in this research, at first, it was tried to produce silica nanoparticles with a particle size of less than 011 nm using the Stober method, and then the surface of the synthesized nanoparticles was coated with HDTMS (Hexadecyltrimethoxysilane) to make the silica particles, which are hydrophilic in nature, hydrophobic. According to the conducted studies,...
