    Design of a Small Scale Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Soltanieh, Hossein (Author) ; Ebrahimi, Abbas (Supervisor) ; Darbandi, Masoud (Supervisor)
    Today, renewable energies such as solar and wind power are replaced to fossil fuel. Wind turbines are two categories; horizontal axis and vertical axis. Vertical axis turbines are not dependent on wind direction and since equipments are installed at the bottom of these turbine towers, maintenance is easy. Among vertical axis turbines, performance of darrieus turbine is better. The aim of this thesis is, analysis and preliminary designing of 1-kilowatt darrieus wind turbine, based on climate of the country, for using in urban environments or areas where there is no economic justification for development of power grid systems. In this regard, statistical data base is made up of vertical axis...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Adl, Morteza (Author) ; Saadat Foumani, Mahmood (Supervisor)
    One of the important experiments on satellites and their components is testing of their resistance to shock wave known to pyroshock. Pyroshock is transient response of a structure to a high frequency and high acceleration shock wave that is created by the action of a member of pyrotechnics in the satellite structure. This research is for design, construction and calibration of a pyroshock simulator apparatus which is done with specific requirements and aims. For this purpose, in first step an experimental test is done and validation of computer simulation is obtained by using results of test. By use of computer simulation tool, new design is presented. After constructing the apparatus and... 

    Design of Adsorption Pretreatment Unit of Natural Gas Feed for LNG

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Sheikh Alivand, Masoud (Author) ; Farhadi, Fatholah (Supervisor)
    In the present study, simultaneous adsorption of water, mercaptans, carbon dioxide and heavy hydrocarbons on three layers bed, namely Activated Alumina, 4A and 13X Molecular Sieve, on PTSA process is designed and simulated for LNG production. The level of water and mercaptan should be decreased to less than 0.1 ppmv at the bottom of zeolite 4A and 3 ppmv at the bottom of zeolite 13X layer respectively. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the dynamic simulation of multi-component adsorption on a multi-layer bed and to predict the effect of different operational variables on adsorption performance. Multi-layer bed decreases the investment cost and operational challenges in... 

    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... 

    Design, Manufacturing and Control of Cell Micromanipulation System

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Jafarimoghaddam, Amir (Author) ; Nejat, Hossein (Supervisor) ; Meghdari, Ali (Supervisor)
    The project aims to design and build a device that is capable of manipulation and control of micro-scale objects in dry and fluid medium. Among all the micro-manipulation methods, the use of magnetic fields has many applications. Because it has the ability to work without direct contact and also within a specified range for living tissue, is safe. To achieve this goal,manipulation systems ever made, were studied. Then, by presenting a conceptual design and the use of appropriate dynamic models for describing the behavior of micro-robot, the system performance was simulated. After this stage, The detailed design of the closed-loop system which must controls the position of the micro-robot... 

    Optimal Trajectory Shaping of Orbital Maneuver in Presence of Uncertainties

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Shakouri, Amir (Author) ; Pourtakdoust, Hossein (Supervisor) ; Kiani, Maryam (Supervisor)
    Traditionally, orbital maneuvers are obtained according to mission cost, time and several constraints. This thesis considers the use of covariance as a measure of uncertainties in the design of orbit maneuvers. The ideal solution in the proposed method is the maneuver that obtains the minimum uncertainty at the desired times in presence of the mission constraints. In this thesis two impulsive orbit maneuver schemes, based on shaping method and sequential lambert solutions, are developed and has been analyzed under uncertainties. Moreover, a novel rendezvous design methodology is proposed in order to minimize the covariace trace at the impulse locations, considering several constraints... 

    Design and Fabrication of Nanovolt Ag/AgCl Bio-potential Sensor

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rostami, Behnoush (Author) ; Fardmanesh, Mehdi (Supervisor) ; Simchi, Abdolreza (Co-Advisor)
    Biopotential sensors are used in a wide range of biomedical applications. For example, measuring electric potentials on the surface of living tissues in electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and electrocardiography (ECG) systems in which the brain, muscle, and heart activities respectively are measured over time. Moreover, these electrodes are used in measuring the pH of different materials and also in receiving and recording the electric field changes of the environment. The major purpose of biopotential electrodes is to act as a transducer between the ionic transport of the tissue and the electron flow in the electrode. Such a transduction takes place due to an oxidation or...

    Thermo-acoustic sience is the conversion of heat to power through the sound wave. Thermoacoustic engines for different reasons like easy making, not having moving parts and so high reliablibility of system is in attention for researchers. Also looped-tube thermoacoustic engines are very new in the world and sience and thechnology of them belong to a few companies and for different reasons are replacing different kinds of thermoacoustic engines.They have higher efficiency than other types. They can be made in large scales. They have a larger thermal range.

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Khanmoradi, Nima (Author) ; Abbaspour Tehrni Fard, Madjid (Supervisor) ; Saayyadi, Hassan (Supervisor)
    Today, as an effective tool for marine applications, towed submarines play an im-portant role in various sectors of the marine industry, including defense, recreation, ocean exploration, etc. The high cost of existing thrust systems, as well as the signifi-cant vibrations in them, run counter to the goal of designing this small, low-cost sub-marine. Therefore, the decision was made to design this vessel with a tensile thrust system. In this project, an attempt is made to introduce and design the structure of the body and the carrying capacity of the passenger by a recreational submarine with the ability to move 10 people as passengers And while introducing the structure of the body shape and...
