    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Naji, Jalil (Author) ; Behzad, Mehdi (Supervisor) ; Zabihollah, Abolghasem (Supervisor) ; Shamloo, Amir (Co-Advisor)
    Magnetorheological (MR) materials show variations in their rheological properties when subjected to varying magnetic fields. They have quick time response, in the order of milliseconds, and thus are potentially applicable to structures and devices when a tunable system response is required. When integrated with a structural system, they can produce higher variations in the dynamic response of the structure. In this thesis, vibration behavior of laminated-composite beam with MR Fluid is investigated.In most studies, shear strain across the thickness of MR layer has been considered as a constant value which does not precisely describe the actual shear strain field. Shear modulus of MR layer in...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Monfaredi Jafarbagi, Aoun (Author) ; Hassannayebi, Erfan (Supervisor)
    To maintain adaptability, businesses should anticipate changes in their environment. The commonly employed forecasting method within corporate circles is the bottom-up approach, which relies on historical data for projecting future trends. However, research suggests that this approach often falls short of accurately reflecting real-world events. This has led to the adoption of dynamic systems modeling, a technique grounded in the assumption of stable conditions. This method effectively replicates the system's current state, thereby assisting in predicting future behaviors over a longer timeframe. The dynamic systems modeling approach was employed in this study, underscoring the imperative...
