    General study of jitter mechanisms for metric-based wireless routing protocols

    , Article AEU - International Journal of Electronics and Communications ; Volume 79 , 2017 , Pages 132-140 ; 14348411 (ISSN) Rezaei, S ; Hemmatyar, A. M. A ; Sharif University of Technology
    2017
    Abstract
    To ameliorate high collision, a nefarious side effect of route discovery stage of reactive routing protocols in wireless networks, jitter mechanisms are proposed which enforce wireless nodes to postpone their transmission for a random amount of time so as to reduce probability of simultaneous transmission. Although it has been shown that jitter mechanisms can dramatically improve reactive routing protocols, it was not until recently that jitter mechanisms have been subjected to study. In this paper, different random distributions are proposed for jittering mechanisms and also shaping function, with the aim of which a simple routing protocol like AODV becomes sensitive to any arbitrary... 

    Fuzzy descriptive evaluation system: real, complete and fair evaluation of students

    , Article Soft Computing ; Volume 24, Issue 4 , 2020 , Pages 3025-3035 Annabestani, M ; Rowhanimanesh, A ; Mizani, A ; Rezaei, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Springer  2020
    Abstract
    In recent years, descriptive evaluation has been introduced as a new model for educational evaluation of Iranian students. The current descriptive evaluation method is based on four-valued logic. Assessing all students with only four values is led to a lack of relative justice and creation of unrealistic equality. Also, the complexity of the evaluation process in the current method increases teacher error’s likelihood. As a suitable solution, in this paper, a fuzzy descriptive evaluation system has been proposed. The proposed method is based on fuzzy logic, which is an infinite-valued logic, and it can perform approximate reasoning on natural language propositions. By the proposed fuzzy... 

    Roll bonding of AA5052 and polypropylene sheets: bonding mechanisms, microstructure and mechanical properties

    Abstract
    Structural, microstructural and mechanical properties in roll bonding of AA5052 and polypropylene sheets have been evaluated in this study. The surface roughness of the AA5052 sheets, rolling temperature and the surface energy of polymer were selected as the bonding variables. The findings indicated that an increase in the surface energy of polypropylene by grafting maleic anhydride would result in higher bonding strength due to chemical interaction between the AA5052 and the maleic anhydride grafted polypropylene (PP-g-MAH). In fact, this reaction caused the formation of an interphase layer at the polymer side of the interface and the diffusion of aluminum into the PP-g-MAH layer. It was...

    Abstract
    Fracture process of fiber-reinforced concrete notched beams is investigated here. Polypropylene macrosynthetic fibers are utilized for reinforcing concrete specimens, and a high-strength mix design is used to produce strong bonds between the embossed polypropylene fibers and the cementitious matrix of beams. Considering different locations for the notch, this study focuses on bridging mechanism under different conditions using both experimental and numerical approaches. First mode of fracture occurs due to opening of crack faces. This mode of failure is simulated by imposing symmetric boundary conditions on middle-notched beams. Inducing the notch with an offset from the middle, mixed-mode...

    Elsevier B.V  2022
    Abstract
    In this paper, the impression of surface oxidization on the aluminum nanopowders is investigated using the reactive molecular dynamics (MD) method under the triaxial compression tests. Validation of the computational model is examined with the experimental results, which demonstrates an acceptable accuracy of the numerical simulations. The MD simulations are performed in three stages; relaxing the nanopowders at 300 K and 0.1 MPa, confining the nanopowders under hydrostatic pressure, and imposing the deviatoric stress through the triaxial compression. Evolutions of the relative density with pressure, stress with strain, and dislocation density with strain are derived together with the...

    Electrochemical investigation of electrodeposited Fe-Pd alloy thin films

    , Article Electrochimica Acta ; Volume 56, Issue 1 , 2010 , Pages 483-490 ; 00134686 (ISSN) Rezaei, M ; Ghorbani, M ; Dolati, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    2010
    Abstract
    In the present study, the electrodeposition of Fe, Pd and Fe-Pd alloys, in alkaline solutions, has been investigated. Using ammonium hydroxide and trisodium citrate as the complexing agents, it has been shown that the co-deposition of Fe and Pd is achieved due to diminishing the difference between the reduction potentials of these two metals. Cyclic voltammetry results clearly show that the electrodeposition processes are diffusion-controlled and the diffusion coefficients of Fe2+ and Pd2+ are 1.11 × 10-6 and 2.19 × 10-5 cm2 s -1, respectively. The step potential experiments reveal that nucleation mechanism is instantaneous with a typical three-dimensional (3D) growth. At low overpotentials,... 

    CMORC: class-based multipath on-demand routing protocol for cognitive radio networks

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 24, Issue 6 , 2017 , Pages 3117-3131 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Rezaei, S ; Afshin Hemmatyar, A. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    2017
    Abstract
    Cognitive radio (CR) technology enables dynamic spectrum access (DSA) to improve the efficiency of under-utilized licensed bands and overcrowded unlicensed bands. However, providing an acceptable service for cognitive users requires more sophisticated approaches due to the existence of Primary Users (PU) with high priority over licensed bands. Additionally, it is of paramount importance that interference with PUs be reduced so that they can communicate without interruption. In order to meet requirements of users as much as possible and reduce interference with PUs, a new Class-based Multi-path Ondemand Routing protocol for Cognitive radio networks (CMORC) is proposed. CMORC is a multipath... 

    Throughput analysis of IEEE 802.11 multi-hop wireless networks with routing consideration: A general framework

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Communications ; Volume 66, Issue 11 , 2018 , Pages 5430-5443 ; 00906778 (ISSN) Rezaei, S ; Gharib, M ; Movaghar, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc  2018
    Abstract
    The end-to-end throughput of multi-hop communication in wireless ad hoc networks is affected by the conflict between forwarding nodes. It has been shown that sending more packets than maximum achievable end-to-end throughput not only fails to increase throughput but also decreases throughput owing to high contention and collision. Accordingly, it is of crucial importance for a source node to know the maximum end-to-end throughput. The end-to-end throughput depends on multiple factors, such as physical layer limitations, medium access control (MAC) protocol properties, routing policy, and nodes' distribution. There have been many studies on analytical modeling of end-to-end throughput but...

    Abstract
    By displacing oil in porous media with other fluid, different mechanisms of fluid displacing occur. The importance of understanding the trapping mechanisms like pore body filling is irrefutable. Pore body filling mechanism with a coordination number of four has different events like I0, I1, I2 and I3. Previous studies showed that the event of I0 occurs when the pore is only filled by a compressible non-wetting phase, but this study showed that this event could also occur by an incompressible non-wetting phase. Trapping mechanisms can be examined in a glass micro-model. In this research, a glass micro-model with three different patterns was used. Results showed that at two spots of the...

    Abstract
    Mobile networks have been growing rapidly, where it is of paramount importance to evaluate the performance of any protocol designed for such networks before deployment. Mobility is one of the main mobile network issues that directly affects performance metrics. Since mobile nodes are often carried by their owners, nodes movement should be modeled according to humans movement. In this paper, we extend our previously published human mobility model based on real collected data. The real human movement is traced, cleaned up and analyzed. To the best of our knowledge, our collected data set is the only one that contains the detail of both walking and driving nodes. The analysis shows several... 

    A new algorithm for fault location on transmission lines by optimal PMU placement

    , Article International Transactions on Electrical Energy Systems ; Volume 25, Issue 10 , 2015 , Pages 2071-2086 ; 20507038 (ISSN) Rezaei Jegarluei, M ; Salehi Dobakhshari, A ; Ranjbar, A. M ; Tayebi, A ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    In this paper, the problem of placing a minimum number of phasor measurement units (PMUs) in a transmission system is considered so that faults on all lines of the network can be diagnosed and located irrespective of their locations. For this purpose, a PMU placement algorithm is applied to calculate the required data for impedance-based fault location of any fault line in the network, achieving the full potential of the circuit laws throughout the system. Another algorithm is then proposed to compute the voltage and current values of the fault line for fault-location purposes. Moreover, as many networks are already equipped with PMUs, the proposed algorithm makes it possible to locate...
