    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Soltanian, Salman (Author) ; Afshin, Hossein (Supervisor) ; Farhanieh, Bijan (Co-Advisor)
    Smoke must be exhausted, as the first action, in probable fire in subways, underground transportation systems and mines in order to survive people exposed to it. To achieving this purpose, the axial fan should be used to move the smoke to the exit lines. These fans should be had same performances in suction and discharge directions (main and reverse directions). This means flow rate should be the same at main and reverse directions. Therefore, fully reversible axial flow fans should be used in emergency ventilations. The fully reversible axial flow fans have same efficiencies in suction and discharge directions. The symmetric profiles should be used in manufacturing of the blades of these...

    Parametric Evaluation of the Y- Shaped Bracing Frame and Introducing a New Method for Design

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Sedaghati, Parshan (Author) ; Mofid, Masoud (Supervisor)
    This paper investigates the behavior of the Y-shaped bracing system. Because of the special type of eccentricity in this system, the behavior of the frame is strongly dependent on the geometrical changes of the braces. So that even in the elastic region, it shows the geometrically nonlinear behavior. The amount of eccentricity is very effective on the nonlinear behavior of the frame. Also the ratio of cross sections of the bracing members has a very important impact on the expected performance of the frame. The results show that this system tolerates large displacements, and can act like a base isolation system. Firstly, using a two-dimensional accurate modeling related to the geometrical...

Based on a parametric study on effect of each factor on the sensor’s performance, the desired values for each parameter is determined. Stability of periodic orbits is studied using Floquet Theory. In addition, three expositions are defined and proved in order to make Floquet Theory applicable for stability analysis of origin. Based on this analysis, the relation between stabilities in the system and occurrence of parametric resonance is illustrated. Due to the complexity of dynamics of a parametrically excited MEMS gyroscope, bifurcations are observed in performance...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Sardari, Ali (Author) ; Farhanieh, Bijan (Supervisor)
    One of the major concerns in the use of light flying objects is propulsion for cruise and take off from land. Creating propulsion force is important in such way that no excessive weight is introduced, especially in case of UAVs. A common trend for propulsion in light flying objects is using propellers. Propellers are commonly driven by an external motive force and due to this force and their geometry, they convert energy from this motive force into the momentum of fluid in which they are immersed as a result a lift force is generated.In the present work, trend of propeller design with optimum performance is introduced with use of vortex theory, optimum energy loss condition or Betz condition...

    Numerical Investigation of Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayer

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Kazemi Zanjani, Nariman (Author) ; Motamed, Arash (Supervisor)
    Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayer (SAMI) is a slightly thin layer made of bitumen and aggregate placed between a pavement with limited cracking and overlay in order to avoid reflective cracking in overlay. SAMI’s performance depends on many factors such as pavement layer’s materials and thickness and existing pavement’s condition. Numerical simulations are powerful tools to evaluate SAMI’s performance. Previous studies showed that construction of SAMI does not necessarily reduce reflective cracking. This research investigated the effect of different parameters on SAMI’s performance using numerical simulations. The focus of this study was on the performance of SAMIs used between asphalt...
