    Asymmetry Between Matter and Antimatter in the Universe

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mazhari, Mohammad (Author) ; Golshani, Mehdi (Supervisor)
    Although the origin of matter-antimatter asymmetry remains unknown, continuing advances in theory and improved experimental limits have ruled out some scenarios for baryogenesis: for example, the sphaleron baryogenesis at the electroweak phase transition in the standard model. In this thesis, we give an introduction to some of the ideas and attempts to understand the origin of the matte -antimatter asymmetry of the universe. After the discussion of some basic issues of cosmology and particle theory, the scenarios of electroweak baryogenesis, GUT baryogenesis, and leptogenesis are outlined

    Construction of an Experimental Device for Foaming Agent and an Experimental Study of the Properties of Foaming Agent

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mohammad Karami (Author) ; Bazargan, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    The primary purpose of acidizing operations in the oil and gas industry is to enhance hydrocarbon production. Acidizing has been a common and conventional method for years, especially when production engineers face issues like declining reservoir pressure leading to reduced production rates. Initially, the treatment solution is referred to as matrix acidizing. In acidizing operations, different additives are combined with the acid to control its behavior in the reservoir. These additives may include iron control agents, corrosion inhibitors, friction reducers, and more. Incompatibility among these additives, the acid, and reservoir fluids can lead to severe damage to the reservoir....

    A misbehavior‐tolerant multipath routing protocol for wireless Ad hoc networks [electronic resource]

    , Article International Journal of Research in Wireless Systems (IJRWS) ; Vol. 2, Issue 9, pp. , Sep. 2013 Sedghi, H. (Haniyeh) ; Pakravan, Mohammad Reza ; Aref, Mohammad Reza ; Sharif University of Technology
    Secure routing is a major key to service maintenance in ad hoc networks. Ad hoc nature exposes the network to several types of node misbehavior or attacks. As a result of the resource limitations in such networks nodes may have a tendency to behave selfishly. Selfish behavior can have drastic impacts on network performance. We have proposed a Misbehavior-Tolerant Multipath Routing protocol (MTMR) which detects and punishes all types of misbehavior such as selfish behavior, wormhole, sinkhole and grey-hole attacks. The protocol utilizes a proactive approach to enforce cooperation. In addition, it uses a novel data redirection method to mitigate the impact of node misbehavior on network...

    Joint Optimization of Computation Offloading and Resource Allocation in Mobile Edge Computing Networks

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Shokouhi, Mohammad Hossein (Author) ; Pakravan, Mohammad Reza (Supervisor) ; Hadi, Mohammad (Co-Supervisor)
    Mobile edge computing (MEC) is a promising technology that aims to resolve cloud computing’s issues by deploying computation resources at the edge of mobile network and in the proximity of users. The advantages of MEC include reduced latency, energy consumption, and load on access and mobile core networks, to name but a few. Despite all the aforementioned advantages, the mobility of mobile network users causes the traditional MEC architecture to suffer from several issues, such as decreased efficiency and frequent service interruption. One of the methods to manage users’ mobility is virtual machine (VM) migration, where the VM containing the user’s task is migrated to somewhere closer to... 

    Estimating Price Elasticity of Natural Gas Demand in Iran's Residential Sector: A Regression Discontinuity Approach

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Makhsousi, Mohammad Hossein (Author) ; Rahmati, Mohammad Hossein (Supervisor) ; Vesal, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    Estimating the price elasticity of gas demand involves complexities depending on the gas market structure and pricing mechanisms in different countries. Distinguishing between supply and demand shocks and block pricing are among the main challenges that can cause endogeneity in elasticity estimates. Iran's domestic gas network, one of the largest and most extensive household gas markets, is divided into five climatic zones based on weather conditions. The pricing steps for these five climates during the five cold months are such that a customer in a warmer climate pays higher prices. Conversely, the pricing steps for the seven warm months are the same for all climates. This policy creates a... 

    Simulation and Control of an Aromatic Extractive Distillation Column

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Karima, Mohammad Mahdi (Author) ; Shahrokhi, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    In this study steady state and dynamic simulation of an NFM extractive distillation unit for seperation of aromatics and non-aromatic components has been carried out. Column output composition obtained with experimental binary coefficients is compared with those obtainded by UNIFAC equation. The results indicate that using UNIFAC for all binrary coefficients results in an unacceptable error in concentration of benzene. If the experimental binary coefficents of benzene with NFM are used and the rest are calculated by UNIFAC equation, the simulation results will be very close to those obtained via experimental binary coefficients. Also it is shown that considering a constant efficiency for all... 

    Investigation of Transport Phenomena in Clarification of Beer by Membrane Using CFD Method

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Kazemi, Mohammad Amin (Author) ; Soltanieh, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    During the brewing process, beer alternately goes through different chemical and biochemical reactions and solid–liquid separation stages. The clarification at the final step of brewing is a highly critical stage when it comes to producing a clear and bright beer. Recently, membrane technology has been successfully used in beer clarification, wherein Kieselguhr (diatomaceous earth) filtration is replaced by cross-flow microfiltration. The most important disadvantages of using microfiltration in clarification of beer is the fouling and flux decline during the process. The phenomenology of fouling mechanisms is still undefined and selection of an appropriate technique for flux enhancement in... 

    Design and Manufacture of a Burner for Transforming Natural Gas to Reduction Gas

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ershad, Mohammad Saleh (Author) ; Halali, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    Different methods can be used to produce reduction gas. One example is using coal. But today there’s a tendency to use natural gas. One way of transforming natural gas to reduction gas is to burn it with gases produced by combustion, such as or vapor; usually a catalyst is used in this method. Another method is burning natural gas directly with oxygen or air. The recent method is of benefit especially in Iran, because of available natural gas resources and avoiding catalyst problems. Designing a burner for this purpose is an important step in reaching this goal. In this project such a burner is designed and manufactured. The burner manufactured in this project burns natural gas with...

    H.264 Decoder for Portable Application

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Alizadeh, Mohammad Sadegh (Author) ; Sharifkhani, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    As mobile multimedia services become popular, it is expected that mobile devices provide more multimedia functions such as real-time video playback, TV watching, and video games. However, real-time video applications running on mobile devices are heavily constrained by their limited computing power, compared to high-end consumer devices. In order to playback a high resolution video on mobile devices, a typical approach would be to fully decode video bitstream into the pixel-domain, and then spatially downscale the decoded frames at a desired resolution. However, due to large computation and memory required for decoding followed by downscaling, this approach is unsuitable for real-time video...
