    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Goudarzi, Saman (Author) ; Tayyebi Rahni, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    In the this study, a numerical simulation of two-dimensional incompressible sloshing flow in a rectangular tank with baffle(s), using Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) is presented. Finite difference LBM and two-phase "Lee" model were used. The potential form of intermolecular forces is utilized to guarantee the stability of the numerical scheme and the discretization of the solution domain is performed by a two dimensional structured grid. Two different distribution functions are applied to obtain pressure, momentum, and composition of the particles. Furthermore, the Boltzmann transport equation is discretized, by using standard D2Q9 method. The "dropl" test case is simulated by the present...

    Our surrounding environment is full of particles with different sizes. These suspended particles enter our body through respiration process, which of course has some negative effects. Therefore, it is very important to comprehend the mechanisms and the effective parameters on these particles motion and their deposition inside the human airway. This work numerically investigates the effects of particles mass and breathing frequency on the deposition of particles in human respiratory system. To this end, a realistic 3-D model of human respiratory system geometry, including nostrils, vestibule, nasal cavity, human sinuses, nasopharynx, oropharynx, larynx, trachea, and main bronchus has been... 

    Seismic Behavior of Connections in Cold-Formed Steel Moment Frames

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Tayyebi, Kamran (Author) ; Kazemi, Mohammad Taghi (Supervisor)
    Today using cold-formed steel elements as members of light-weight structures is more common especially in low-rise residential and industrial buildings. Due to Thin-walled plates used to make these sections, members of the frame are prone to premature local buckling and they don’t show good ductility under seismic loadings. Beacause of these reasons, using cold-formed steel elements in moment frames has become a big challenge for scientists. Lots of numerical and experimental models have been presented.
    In this study, we investigated the behavior of a beam-column moment connection, consists of two back to back channel sections with curved flanges, using a plate passing through the...

On the other hand, the idea of application of reduced order modelling, which orginally comes from control theories and structural analysis, have attracted many researchers in recent years.

    Numerical Simulation of Two-dimensional Sonoluminescence Phenomenon, Using Front Tracking/Ghost Fluid Method

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Moezzi Rafie, Hamid (Author) ; Tayyebi Rahni, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    Sonoluminescence is a unique phenomenon in physics, which is known as the process of converting sound into light. By applying sound to a volume of liquid, with a specific geometrical shape (such as sphere) and forming standing waves around an existing bubble, the bubble first expands to a maximum radius and then gets extremely small leading to its supersonic collapse. During the collapse, the resulting shock wave approches the center of the bubble, causing extreme increase in the pressure and temperature at the center of the bubble. This causes flashing of light during small time scales (pico-seconds). This phenomenon is used in many fields, such as treatment of cancer. Also, the energy...

    Algebraic Sets and Their Minimal Polynomials in a Division Ring, a General Setting

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Tayyebi, Saeed (Author) ; Mahdavi-Hezavehi, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    A Weddernurn polynomial over a division ring K, is the minimal polynomial of an algebraic subset of K. Such a polynomial, always is a product of linear factors over K, but not all such products are Wedderburn polynomials, even if these linear factors are distinct. In this thesis, we give some properties and characterizatios of Wedderburn polynomials over the division ring K, which relates deeply to algebraic subsets of K. We work in the general setting of Ore skew polynomials with an indeterminate t over K, corresponding to S,D, where S is an endomorphism of K and D is an S-derivation over K. Also we give a survey of the structure of the skew polynomial ring K[t; S; D] and its relation with...

    Pore-scale Simulation of Flow around a Micro-porous Square Cylinder, Using Hybrid LBM-FVM, Considering Slip Condition Inside Porous Media

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rostamzadeh, Hadi (Author) ; Tayyebi Rahni, Mohammad (Supervisor)
    In recent years, application of porous media is highlighted among researchers due to their wider use in micro-scale problems, such as in gas reservoirs, micro-filtering, and heat exchangers. In such applications, accurate description of flow behavior, using governing equations based on continuum assumption, is not valid, since mean free path has the same order as the characteristic length of the problem. In such cases, imposing appropriate slip condition on the fluid-solid interface of porous media (in pore-scale level), based on kinetics theory, is an appropriate approach. For this purpose, pore-scale simulation of flow inside porous media in slippery and transient regimes is carried out... 

    Numerical Simulation of Bubble Cluster Dynamics, Using Lattice Boltzmann Method

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Daemi, Mahdi (Author) ; Tayyebi Rahni, Mohammad (Supervisor) ; Massah, Hamid Reza (Co-Advisor)
    Bubble cluster has attracted the interests of many researches since the early twentieth century. Despite its easy generation and numerous occurrences, its study is extremely complex. Describing the dynamical behavior of bubble clusters is possible when quite a few simplifying assumptions are utilized. In other words, one can observe that with current approaches, the relevant theoretical researches are not very valuable. In this research, however, lattice Boltzmann method, a rather recent mesoscopic approach, was used to study the behavior of bubbles in a bubble cluster. Of course, this is only the beginning and there is a long way before getting close to experimental results. However, there...

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Hojaji Najafabadi, Mohammad (Author) ; Tayyebi Rahni, Mohammad (Supervisor) ; Soltani, Mohammad Reza (Co-Advisor)
    The problem of jet into a cross flow is one of the classic problems in fluid mechanics and has many engineering applications, such as in vector thrust control systems. Although many works have been done in this field, there have not been enough research in interactions of supersonic jets into compressible subsonic cross flows (specially its interaction with control surfaces downstream). Hence, the purpose of this research is to get better understanding of this interaction and its effects on control surfaces downstream (both numerical and experimental). Some of the individual achievements of this research are the design and manufacturing of supersonic jet system, parametric study of: boundary...
