    Dynamic Analysis of FGM Micro Beam With Piezoelectric Patches Under Electric Force

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hosseinzadeh, Ali (Author) ; Ahmadian, Mohammad Taghi (Supervisor)
    In this research, a functionally graded microbeam bonded with piezoelectric layers is analyzed under electric force. Static and dynamic instability due to the electric actuation is studied because of its importance in micro electro mechanical systems, especially in micro switches. In order to prevent pull-in instability, two piezoelectric layers are used as sensor and actuator. A charge amplifier is used to supply input voltage of the actuator from the output of the sensor layer. Using Hamilton's principle and Euler-Bernoulli theory, equation of motion of the system is obtained. It is shown that the load type (distributed or concentrated) applied to the microbeam from the piezoelectric... 

    Design of Robust Controller for Depth of Anesthesia

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hosseinzadeh, Mahdi (Author) ; Sadati, Nasser (Supervisor)
    Automatic control of depth of anesthesia is an important problem in biomedical engineering. The main challenging problem in anesthesia automation is inter-patients differences which is referred to as uncertainty and is crucial in robust controller design. One of the most appropriate tools in designing robust controllers is H_∞ concept. Furthermore, H_2 concept is used to reject the measurement noise which is unavoidable in practical cases. In this project we use mixed H_2/H_∞ concept to design robust controller for depth of anesthesia. Multi-model controller is another approach to design robust controller for depth of anesthesia, which reject measurement noise and also cover the...

    Oil Separation from Contaminated Condensates WithFuel in Power Plant by Flotation &Solvent Sublation

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hosseinzadeh, Hossein (Author) ; shaygan, Jalaloddin (Supervisor) ; Jalali, Morteza (Supervisor)
    Some of the thermal power plants use heavy fuel oil as an auxiliary fuel instead of the fuel gas, especially in the cold seasons. In these plants, in order to reduce fuel viscosity, heavy fuel oil is heated in several stages including fuel storage tank, connection lines and oil supply to burner by heat exchange with returned steam from the turbine, which can lead to fuel leakage into the condensates. This contamination is in addition to the contamination that has resulted from leaking seals on steam driven equipments, such as pumps and turbines. Reusing these contaminated condensates as boiler feed water can lead to coking of hydrocarbons and deposition of a hard scale on boiler tube walls....

    Application of Multiscale methods for Modeling Spatial Heterogeneity in Complex Reservoirs

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hajizadeh Mobaraki, Alireza (Author) ; Farhadpour, Farhad A (Supervisor) ; Sayf Kordi, Ali Akbar (Supervisor)
    Underground reservoirs are highly complicated due to the presence of spatial heterogeneities at length scales that span from micrometer in pore structure of the rocks to kilometer in the reservoir models. While large-scale flow units need to be characterized using seismic and well data, detailed displacements of fluids in pore space need to be modeled using thin section analysis and pore network modeling. It is therefore necessary to adopt a multi-scale approach to reservoir description to make best use of all the available data that vary over several orders of magnitude, from micro-scale in pore structure to field scale in reservoir flow models. In this thesis, an integrated framework for...

    Incineration of oil wastes is a very important subject in oil refinery Industries. Such wastes may include toxic ports such as CO or hydrocarbon compounds, in either liquid or gas forms. In this project, we simulate an oil refinery incinerator. The industry has decided to increase the waste capacity to 150% of its design conditions. This causes the appearance of CO and methane at the outlet of incinerator stack. We investigated the incinerator operation and-found that we might solve the pollution problem by re-design of air and waste inlets to the incinerator. In this regard, we first simulated the incinerator in its normal operation to validate our numerical modeling. Next, we assumed... 

    Jahn-Teller Effect in Diamond Vacancy Under Stress

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology monfared, Mohammad (Author) ; Vesaghi, M. A (Supervisor) ; Babamoradi, M (Co-Advisor)
    Electron states of diamond vacancy under stress were studied theoretically. The generalized Hubbard model is used to calculate the electrons energy levels. The results shows that the degeneracy of some levels (T, with triple space degeneracy) reduced to levels with lower degeneracy (E, with double space degeneracy and A, without degeneracy). Besides this spiting of degeneracy the energy of all states changed and therefore the transition energy between these states changed too. Jahn-Teller effect was observed

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hosseinzadeh, Matin (Author) ; Vosoughi-Vahdat, Bijan (Supervisor)
    Falls are one of the major causes leading to injury of elderly people. Using wearable devices for fall detection has a high cost and may cause inconvenience to the daily lives of the elderly. In this project, we present an automated fall detection approach that requires only a low-cost depth camera. Our approach combines two computer vision techniques, spatio-temporal fall characterization and a learning-based classifier to distinguish falls from other daily actions. A dense set of spatio-temporal feature vectors are computed from video to provide a localized description of the action, and subsequently aggregated in an empirical covariance matrix to compactly represent the action. Then, we...

    A Mathematical Model to Apportion the Cost of Kidney Purchasing in Domino-paired Donation

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hosseinzadeh, Arian (Author) ; Najafi, Mehdi (Supervisor)
    The human body normally has two functioning kidneys, while only one of them is sufficient to have a healthy life. However, for those patients having no functioning kidney, transplantation is the most effective treatment. Although deceased donors have been usually used as the main source for kidney donation in many countries, there are several cases focusing on living kidney donation to compensate for the shortage in supply and to reduce the patient waiting time for treatment. Because of this potential, many studies have been conducted to optimize the non-clinical issues of kidney transplant waiting lists. Notwithstanding employing the financial incentives for living kidney donation is...
