    Experimental and Numerical Evaluation of Cold-Formed Steel Shear Panel with Suitable Sheathing Under Seismic Loading

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Rahimi Bala, Mohammad (Author) ; Rahimzadeh Rofooei, Fayaz (Supervisor)
    In this thesis, the behavior of cold-form steel (CFS) frames equipped with various configurations of steel sheathing and K-shaped braces is experimentally investigated. Low lateral resistance is the main deficiency of the CFS shear walls. Despite their advantages, such as being lightweight, ease of fabrication, and an environmentally friendly system, their lack of adequate lateral strength prevents engineers from widely using them, especially in areas with medium to high seismicity or in mid-rise buildings. In this regard, a total of seven full-scale specimens with different configurations of steel sheathing and k-braced, with and without cladding, were tested to investigate their seismic...

    Anderson Localization of Electromagnetic Waves

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Sheikhan Soudani, Amene (Author) ; Rahimi Tabar, Mohammad Reza (Supervisor)
    The electrons scatter by the impurities during propagation through the media and become localized by increasing the impurities. So the metal insulator transition occurs. This phenomenon was first proposed by W. Anderson and is known as Anderson Localization. In this thesis the Anderson localization of electromagnetic waves is investigated. The disordered media with random dielectric constant is studied by considering Maxwell’s equations. There are different numerical methods to study this phenomenon such as transfer matrix method and level statistics we have used in this thesis.

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rahimi, Mohammad Amin (Author) ; Salarieh, Hassan (Supervisor) ; Alasty, Aria (Supervisor)
    Stabilizing periodic orbit of fractional order chaotic system via linear state feedback is the subject of this research. Firstly, for detection of the unstable periodic orbits (UPO) in fractional order chaotic systems, the famous shooting method for integer order systems is extended to fractional order systems. After that, for stabilizing the fractional order system a hypothesis is stated and a theorem is proved in a specific condition. Besides the proven theorem, some examples are presented as evidences that verify the hypothesis. So, through the hypothesis, common methods for stabilizing integer order systems can be extended to the fractional order systems. Finally, for stabilizing the...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rezanezhad, Vahid (Author) ; Rahimi Tabar, Mohammad Reza (Supervisor)
    In this thesis we study the dispersion of one-dimensional scalar waves in a random media. We used the finite difference method to obtain the numerical solution of wave equation in this media. Then we were able to find wave signals for different disorder intensities and at different distances from the source. Using the Wavelet Transform, intresting features such as phase and group velocity can be studied. The Morlet function is used as the mother wavelet for decomposing the signals at different places. Cross-correlation functions of Wavlet transforms of the signals at different positions are used to obtain phase velocity and its dependence on frequency. We show how the phase velocity at the...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rahimi Movassagh, Mahsa (Author) ; Langari, Abdollah (Supervisor)
    Strongly correlated electron systems are an interesting topic among condensed matter systems. The electrons in such systems are strongly correlated to each other in a way that the behavior of the systems cannot be described by single particle theories. One of the most famous of these systems are heavy fermionic materials which are called so due to heavy quasi particles mass.
    This kind of materials have been investigated via different methods. The most im-portant model that can describe characteristics of these materials is Kondo lattice model. When we are only interested in magnetic properties of them, the model can be reduced to Kondo-necklace model which only involves with spin degrees... 

    Analysis and Improvement of Dynamic Performance and Fault Ride-Through Capability of Wind Turbines Based on Doubly-Fed Induction Generators

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Rahimi Kelishadi, Mohsen (Author) ; Parniani, Mostafa (Supervisor)
    Variable speed wind turbines (VSWTs) provide the capability of wide speed operation and independent control of active and reactive power. In contrast to the fixed speed WTs, they have higher efficiency, power quality and controllability. VSWTs are mainly divided in two categories: WTs based on doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) and WTs based on full converter with permanent magnet synchronous generator.
    At now, among the different alternatives to obtain VSWTs, DFIGs are the most commonly used. This is because the voltage source converter (VSC) in DFIG has to handle a fraction of the total power under steady state conditions, and thus the size and cost of the converter is reduced....
