Is it possible every graph is (2, 2)-total weight choosable and every...

#### Evaluation of Strength Loss due to Diagonal Crack and Parameters Affecting it in Masonry Infill Walls

, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Alinejad, Nasrollah (Author) ; Moghaddam, Hassan (Supervisor)
Abstract
Masonry infills are vastly used as surrounding walls and partitions. Presence of infill in a building causes some change in strength, stiffness, period and generally seismic behavior of the structure.Mainly there are 5 modes of failure including 1- interface cracking 2- sliding along bed joint 3- diagonal cracking 4- corner crushing and 5- ultimate failure. According to these failures, three stages of strength as shear strength, corner strength and ultimate strength can be defined.Diagonal crack can be calculated by slip surface method grown in Sharif university of Technology. Based on this method the strength of infill wall falls down as the cohesive strength of mortar loses and so the slip...

#### Evaluating the Performance of the Concrete Filled Composite Tube Column under Axial Compression Load

, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Alinejad, Ali (Author) ; Khaloo, Alireza (Supervisor)
Abstract
The purpose of this research is evaluating of how the concrete filled composite tube column performs. Nowadays in the construction industry, a new kind of composite column called concrete filled composite tube (CFCT) columns, have become very common. Concrete and composite tubes posses’ complementary performance. Because on one hand, the composite tube makes proper confinement for concrete, on the other hand the concrete prevents internal and local buckling of the composite tube. One of the major advantages of the concrete filled composite tube columns compare to the reinforced concrete column is that there is no further need for reinforcement and molding, which results in swifter...

Abstract
Health, Margin and Risk states which in recent years are known as well-being reliability indices, provide a comprehensive adequacy assessment of bulk power system reliability studies. Conventional reliability information about power system operation only considered health and risk states which were not often adequate criteria both in system planning and utilization. It seems margin state as the intermediate condition between health and risk must be considered. Well-being method which is a approach to power system generation adequacy evaluation incorporates deterministic criteria in a probabilistic framework and provides system operating information in addition to risk assessment and can be...

Abstract
Well-Being reliability indices (Health, Margin and Risk), provide a comprehensive measure to assess the adequacy of composite power systems. Conventional reliability information about power system operation only considered health and risk states, which were not often adequate criteria in both power system planning and operation. Well-being approach for power system generation adequacy evaluation incorporates deterministic criteria in a probabilistic framework, and provides system operating information in addition to risk assessment and can be evaluated using analytical techniques. The most important part of this approach is the algorithm for calculating the probability of the states....

Abstract
The random decisions of electric vehicle (EV) drivers, together with the vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) energy transfer modes, make scheduling for an intelligent parking lot (IPL) more complex; thus, they have not been considered simultaneously during IPL planning in other studies. To fill this gap, this paper presents a complete optimal schedule for an IPL in which all the above-mentioned items are considered simultaneously. Additionally, using a complete objective function—including charging/discharging rates and prices, together with penalties, discounts, and reward sets—increases the profits of IPL and EV owners. In addition, during peak times, the demand for energy...

#### Simulation of Phenol Biodegradation by Pseudomonas Putida in a Continuous Stirred Biofilm Reactor

, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Alinejad, Mahsa (Author) ; Yaghmaei, Soheila (Supervisor) ; Askaripour, Hossein (Supervisor)
Abstract
The use of microorganisms to remove or produce a substace is a fundamental part of biotechnology. An example is the bioreactors for phenol removal in wastewater. Biological processes are commonly done in batch reactors in which suspended cells grow in the liquid phase. The batch process needs alternate reactor washes and alternate cell cultivation, which leades to a longer time constant for for each batch. If these reactors operate in continuous conditions, the cells will leave the reactor in liquid flow, and high cell concentrations will be impossible. The biofilm layer makes a batch phase, so the liquid phase flows in and out continuously, but the cells in the biofilm layer stay in the...

Abstract
It is now known that at least 10% of samples with pancreatic cancers (PC) contain a causative mutation in the known susceptibility genes, suggesting the importance of identifying cancer-associated genes that carry the causative mutations in high-risk individuals for early detection of PC. In this study, we develop a statistical pipeline using a new concept, called gene-motif, that utilizes both mutated genes and mutational processes to identify 4211 3-nucleotide PC-associated gene-motifs within 203 significantly mutated genes in PC. Using these gene-motifs as distinguishable features for pancreatic cancer subtyping results in identifying five PC subtypes with distinguishable phenotypes and...

Abstract
Over the last decades, several approaches have been proposed in the literature to incorporate users' perceptions of travel costs, their bounded rationality, and risk-taking behaviors into network equilibrium modeling for traffic assignment problem. While theoretically advanced, these models often suffer from high complexity and computational cost and often involve parameters that are difficult to estimate. This study proposes an alternative approach where users' imprecise perceptions of travel times are endogenously constructed as fuzzy sets based on the probability distributions of random link travel times. Two decision rules are proposed accordingly to account for users' heterogeneous...

Abstract
Analysis of cancer mutational signatures have been instrumental in identification of responsible endogenous and exogenous molecular processes in cancer. The quantitative approach used to deconvolute mutational signatures is becoming an integral part of cancer research. Therefore, development of a stand-alone tool with a user-friendly interface for analysis of cancer mutational signatures is necessary. In this manuscript we introduce CANCERSIGN, which enables users to identify 3-mer and 5-mer mutational signatures within whole genome, whole exome or pooled samples. Additionally, this tool enables users to perform clustering on tumor samples based on the proportion of mutational signatures in...

Abstract
Background: The advent of high throughput sequencing has enabled researchers to systematically evaluate the genetic variations in cancer, identifying many cancer-associated genes. Although cancers in the same tissue are widely categorized in the same group, they demonstrate many differences concerning their mutational profiles. Hence, there is no definitive treatment for most cancer types. This reveals the importance of developing new pipelines to identify cancer-associated genes accurately and re-classify patients with similar mutational profiles. Classification of cancer patients with similar mutational profiles may help discover subtypes of cancer patients who might benefit from specific...
