    Abstract
    Presence of bubbles affects quality of the lead silicate glass (LSG) samples. This paper presents the most recent results obtained on formation and collapse of bubbles in LSG melts. Main sources of the bubbles are dissolved gases and redox reactions. A foamy layer full of bubbles rapidly forms at top of the molten phase. Effect of viscosity and density of the melt on content and ascension rate of the bubbles are investigated. Number and mean diameter of the bubbles and thickness of the top bubbly layer are calculated from gas volume measurements and image analysis via J software

    Abstract
    A two stage chemical deposition (TSCD) technique is used to produce ZnO films on quartz glass (QG), soda lime glass (SLG) and high purity alumina (HPA) from an aqueous solution of zinc complex. The effects of the substrate material on the chemical composition and morphology of the deposited layer are investigated. The effects of different annealing temperatures (180, 300, 500 and 800°C) on the morphology and orientation of the ZnO crystallites are also determined. X-ray diffraction diffractograms show that above 300°C, the intensity of (002) peak considerably decreases with increasing temperature. Results indicate that changing the substrate from QG to SLG does not significantly influence...

    Thermally induced failure mechanism transition and its correlation with short-range order evolution in metallic glasses

    , Article Extreme Mechanics Letters ; Volume 9 , 2016 , Pages 215-225 ; 23524316 (ISSN) Jafary Zadeh, M ; Tavakoli, R ; Srolovitz, D. J ; Zhang, Y. W ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier Ltd 
    Abstract
    The effect of temperature on the short-range order (SRO) structures, deformation mechanisms and failure modes of metallic glasses (MGs) is of fundamental importance for their practical applications. However, due to lack of direct structural information at the atomistic level from experiments and the absence of previous molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to reproduce experimental observations over a wide range of temperature, this issue has not been well understood. Here, by carefully constructing the atomistic models of Cu64Zr36 and Fe80W20 MGs, we are able to reproduce the major deformation modes observed experimentally, i.e. single shear banding (SB) at low temperatures, multiple... 

    Effect of the strain rate on the intermediate temperature brittleness in Zr-based bulk metallic glasses

    , Article Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids ; Volume 475 , 2017 , Pages 172-178 ; 00223093 (ISSN) Asadi Khanouki, M. T ; Tavakoli, R ; Aashuri, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    In this work, the effect of strain rate on the ductility, intermediate temperature brittleness and fracture surface of Zr-based BMG over a wide range of temperatures from 0.1 Tg to near Tg, has been systematically investigated. The results showed two remarkable ductile to brittle transition at low cryogenic and intermediate temperatures. At low temperatures, below 0.4 Tg, the activation of diffusion mediated phenomena is negligible and the combined effects of strain rate and temperature contribute to the plasticity of material by changing the STZ volume, hence the possibility of forming multiple shear bands. At the temperature range from 0.4 Tg to the temperature at which the intermediate...

    , Article Ceramics International ; 2020 Abdollahi, S ; Paryab, A ; Khalilifard, R ; Anousheh, M ; Malek Khachatourian, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier Ltd  2020
    Abstract
    In the present study, a bioactive silicate-phosphate glass-ceramic scaffold was fabricated via the polymer-derived ceramics (PDC) method. K2HPO4 phosphate salt was used as the P2O5 precursor in this method. The effect of K2HPO4 wt% and heat treatment temperatures (900–1100 °C) was evaluated. It was observed that although increasing the wt% of K2HPO4 led to the formation of scaffolds with higher densities and strengths, it could also increase the formation of the calcium phase, which could result in improper release behavior of scaffolds. On the other hand, higher heat treatment temperatures enhanced the strength of the scaffolds but eliminated the bioactive octacalcium phosphate (OCP) phase.... 

    Temperature dependence of serrated flow, strain-rate sensitivity and activation volume in a Ti-based bulk metallic glass

    , Article Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids ; February , 2020 Asadi Khanouki, M. T ; Tavakoli, R ; Aashuri, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier B.V  2020
    Abstract
    In this study, the influence of temperature on serrated flow behavior, strain rate sensitivity (SRS) and effective activation volume in a Ti-based bulk metallic glass (BMG) bent at different strain rates has been investigated. Results reveal that the fundamental origin of shear deformation is related to the time-dependent structural relaxations, which occur during deformation at special temperatures and strain rates. Furthermore, the localized structural relaxation processes at intermediate temperatures cause an inelastic shuffling within cages and mitigate the activation of STZs. The main reason of negative SRS at intermediate temperatures is due to the insufficient time for structural... 

    Energy-landscape networks of spin glasses

    , Article Physical Review E - Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics ; Volume 77, Issue 3 , 2008 ; 15393755 (ISSN) Seyed Allaei, H ; Seyed Allaei, H ; Ejtehadi, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    2008
    Abstract
    We have studied the topology of the energy landscape of a spin-glass model and the effect of frustration on it by looking at the connectivity and disconnectivity graphs of the inherent structure. The connectivity network shows the adjacency of energy minima whereas the disconnectivity network tells us about the heights of the energy barriers. Both graphs are constructed by the exact enumeration of a two-dimensional square lattice of a frustrated spin glass with nearest-neighbor interactions up to the size of 27 spins. The enumeration of the energy-landscape minima as well as the analytical mean-field approximation show that these minima have a Gaussian distribution, and the connectivity...

    Abstract
    This research studies the effect of glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) bars as compressive reinforcement in reinforced concrete (RC) beam members. Three singly and six doubly reinforced GFRP-RC beams were tested under a four-point loading configuration. The effect of compressive reinforcement on the load-bearing capacity, ductility, stiffness, and failure mode is determined. Also, the compressive performance of GFRP bars is evaluated by testing GFRP-RC cylinders. According to the results, GFRP bars in compression had a limited contribution to enhancing flexural strength, and the maximum increment in the flexural capacity of doubly reinforced beams compared to singly reinforced specimens...
