    Abstract
    In the present study, shock-disturbances interaction in high-speed compressible inviscid flow is simulated utilizing the weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) scheme by employing the shock-capturing technique. For this aim, the two-dimensional Euler equations in strong conservative form are discretized by using the explicit third-order TVD Runge–Kutta scheme in time and the fifth-order WENO finite difference scheme in space. The main advantage of using the WENO scheme is its capability for properly solving the discontinuities in the domain without needing any artificial viscosity, limiter function or filter. Hence, this scheme is stable, and thus, it is suitable for simulating very...

    Abstract
    Short-circuit fault (SCF) detection is mandatory in a high voltage DC power supply (HVPS) to prevent fatal damage. The majority of converters employ a single sensor to detect the SCF. This attribute increases the interference vulnerability of the fault detection (FD) system in the presence of noise. Therefore, miss detections and false alarms are possible to occur. Miss detections and false alarms are harmful catastrophes in most applications. A commonly used method to suppress the noise impacts is using a low-bandwidth low-pass filter. However, the use of the low-bandwidth low-pass filter reduces the speed of FD due to the filter delay. This paper proposes a fast FD algorithm based on...

    Abstract
    Due to several advantages, three-phase Dual Active Bridge (DAB) converter is widely used in numerous applications nowadays. On the other hand, this converter is very vulnerable to Transistor Open-Circuit Fault (TOCF). Therefore, a fault-tolerant (FT) scheme has been proposed in this paper to solve the problem. First, normal and faulty conditions are investigated, and according to the results, a fault-diagnosis (FD) approach is introduced. Using the outcomes of FD unit, a new post-fault strategy is proposed for the converter. The FD method is based on the DC component of transformer phase currents, and the basis of FT technique is shedding the faulty phase. Some benefits of the proposed... 

    IGBT Open-circuit fault diagnosis in a quasi-z-source inverter

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics ; Volume 66, Issue 4 , 2019 , Pages 2847-2856 ; 02780046 (ISSN) Yaghoubi, M ; Moghani, J. S ; Noroozi, N ; Zolghadri, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc  2019
    Abstract
    In this paper, a fast and practical method is proposed for open-circuit (OC) fault diagnosis (FD) in a three-phase quasi-Z-source inverter (q-ZSI). Compared with the existing fast OC FD techniques in three-phase voltage source inverters, this method is more cost-effective since no ultrafast processor or high-speed measurement is required. Additionally, the method is independent of the load condition. The proposed method is only applicable to Z-source family inverters and is based on observing the effect of shoot-through intervals on the system variables during switching periods. The proposed algorithm includes two consecutive stages: OC detection and fault location identification. When both...

    , Article International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids ; Volume 89, Issue 7 , 2019 , Pages 235-255 ; 02712091 (ISSN) Ezzatneshan, E ; Hejranfar, K ; Sharif University of Technology
    John Wiley and Sons Ltd  2019
    Abstract
    In the present study, a high-order compact finite-difference lattice Boltzmann method is applied for accurately computing 3-D incompressible flows in the generalized curvilinear coordinates to handle practical and realistic geometries with curved boundaries and nonuniform grids. The incompressible form of the 3-D nineteen discrete velocity lattice Boltzmann method is transformed into the generalized curvilinear coordinates. Herein, a fourth-order compact finite-difference scheme and a fourth-order Runge-Kutta scheme are used for the discretization of the spatial derivatives and the temporal term, respectively, in the resulting 3-D nineteen discrete velocity lattice Boltzmann equation to... 

    Tuning the dispersion of reactive solute by steady and oscillatory electroosmotic-Poiseuille flows in polyelectrolyte-grafted micro/nanotubes

    Cambridge University Press  2019
    Abstract
    This paper extends the analysis of solute dispersion in electrohydrodynamic flows to the case of band broadening in polyelectrolyte-grafted (soft) capillaries by accounting for the effects of ion partitioning, irreversible catalytic reaction and pulsatile flow actuation. In the Debye-Hückel limit, we present the benchmark solutions of electric potential and velocity distribution pertinent to steady and oscillatory mixed electroosmotic-pressure-driven flows in soft capillaries. Afterwards, the mathematical models of band broadening based on the Taylor-Aris theory and generalized dispersion method are presented to investigate the late-time asymptotic state and all-time evolution of...

    Abstract
    The objective of this work is to numerically study the fluid flow and acoustic field of a supersonic impinging jet by applying the vorticity confinement (VC) method. For this aim, the three-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes equations with the incorporation of the VC method are considered and the resulting system of equations is solved by using the sixth-order compact finite-difference scheme. To eliminate the numerical instability, a low-pass high-order filter is used. The nonreflective boundary conditions are applied for all the free boundaries and the radiated sound field is obtained by the Kirchhoff surface integration.

    Abstract
    This paper aims to develop a boundary control solution for complicated gantry crane coupled motions. In addition to the large angle sway motion, the crane cable has a flexural transverse vibration. The Hamilton principle has been utilized to derive the governing partial differential equations of motion. The control objectives which are sought include: moving the payload to the desired position; reducing the payload swing with large sway angle; and finally suppressing the cable transverse vibrations in the presence of boundary disturbances simultaneously. These simultaneous boundary control objectives make the problem challenging. The proposed control approach is based on the original...

    Abstract
    In this study, a coupling of a hydrologic and hydraulic model was utilized to assess the impacts of river geometry data resolution on the flood inundation characteristics in a data-scarce environment. Hydrological modeling incorporates soil conservation service curve-number (SCS-CN) and the geomorphologic based instantaneous unit hydrograph model (GIUH) to compute the direct runoff hydrograph in Kashkan river basin located in western Iran. 1D HEC-Geo-RAS model was used and performed to simulate inundation extent of 100-yr floods (~1800 m3/s) along 40 km reach of Kashkan river with a ground survey of river cross-section (2000 cross-sections, each including 500 data-points). The effect of...

    Abstract
    The formation damage (FD) caused by the invasion of drilling fluid severely affects reservoir performance during production. Most of the published research studies which address this type of FD have been carried out at the core or field scale. Thus, the main aim of the paper is to investigate the pore-scale mechanisms of FD induced by drilling fluids and their control with silica nanoparticles (NPs) using a microfluidic approach. The proper identification of the mechanisms of FD can lead to the proper selection of NP type and concentration as well as a suitable method to remediate FD. The micromodel was designed in a way to closely simulate the cross-flow at the wellbore surface. A... 

    Comparing sloshing phenomena in a rectangular container with and without a porous medium using explicit nonlinear 2-D BEM-FDM

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 17, Issue 2 B , 2010 , Pages 93-101 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Abbaspour, M ; Ghodsi Hassanabad, M ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    The sloshing phenomena in a partially filled tank can affect its stability. Modifications of tank instability due to the movement of the tank carrier, are key design points for the stability of a carrier. Even though the sloshing phenomenon has already been investigated using the BEM-FDM technique, the research in this paper covers this phenomenon in a porous media, which is new in 2-D coordinates. For this purpose, a Laplace equation has been used for potential flow, and kinematic and dynamic boundary conditions have been applied to the free surface. Also, a formulation has been developed for a free surface in porous media. BEM has been used for solving the governing equation and FDM... 

    CFD-DEM simulation of the hole cleaning process in a deviated well drilling: the effects of particle shape

    , Article Particuology ; Volume 25 , 2016 , Pages 72-82 ; 16742001 (ISSN) Akhshik, S ; Behzad, M ; Rajabi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    We investigate the effect of particle shape on the transportation mechanism in well-drilling using a three-dimensional model that couples computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with the discrete element method (DEM). This numerical method allows us to incorporate the fluid-particle interactions (drag force, contact force, Saffman lift force, Magnus lift force, buoyancy force) using momentum exchange and the non-Newtonian behavior of the fluid. The interactions of particle-particle, particle-wall, and particle-drill pipe are taken into account with the Hertz-Mindlin model. We compare the transport of spheres with non-spherical particles (non-smooth sphere, disc, and cubic) constructed via the...

    Springer New York LLC  2018
    Abstract
    This paper presents an analysis of the combined electro-osmotic and pressure-driven axial flows of viscoelastic fluids in a rectangular microchannel with arbitrary aspect ratios. The rheological behavior of the fluid is described by the complete form of Phan-Thien–Tanner (PTT) model with the Gordon–Schowalter convected derivative which covers the upper convected Maxwell, Johnson–Segalman and FENE-P models. Our numerical simulation is based on the computation of 2D Poisson–Boltzmann, Cauchy momentum and PTT constitutive equations. The solution of these governing nonlinear coupled set of equations is obtained by using the second-order central finite difference method in a non-uniform grid... 

    Optimal riser design in sand casting process by topology optimization with SIMP method I: poisson approximation of nonlinear heat transfer equation

    , Article Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization ; Volume 36, Issue 2 , 25 January , 2008 , Pages 193-202 ; 1615147X (ISSN) Tavakoli, R ; Davami, P ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    The optimal design of a casting feeding system is considered. The problem is formulated as the volume constrained topology optimization and is solved with the finite element analysis, explicit design sensitivity, and numerical optimization. In contrast to the traditional topology optimization where the objective function is defined on the design space, in the presented method, the design space is a subset of the complement of the objective function space. To accelerate optimization procedure, the nonlinear unsteady heat transfer equation is approximated with a Poisson-like equation. The feasibility of the presented method is supported with illustrative examples. © 2007 Springer-Verlag
