Analytical Model for the Ultimate Bearing Capacity of Foundations from Cone Resistance
Ashoor, M. (Sharif University of Technology, 20060701)By application of Cone Penetration Test (CPT) data for shallow foundation (footing) design, the problems of providing representative undisturbed samples and, rather, varphiN coefficient relations will be eliminated. An ...

Application of a Genetic Algorithm to Storm Sewer Network Optimization
Ashoor, M. (Sharif University of Technology, 20060701)In this paper, a genetic algorithm is developed for the optimal design of storm water networks. The nodal elevations of the sewer network are taken as the decision variables. A steady state simulation code is used to analyze ...

Comparing Shape and Image Reconstruction in Electrical Capacitance Tomography
Ashoor, M. (Sharif University of Technology, 20060701)Electrical Capacitance Tomography (ECT) is an imaging technique that maps the electrical permittivity contrast of the object. This paper studies an image and a shape reconstruction method for ECT. For image reconstruction, ...

Dynamics Modeling of
Ashoor, M. (Sharif University of Technology, 20060701)This paper presents an effective approach for kinematic and dynamic modeling of high mobility Wheeled Mobile Robots (WMR). As an example of these robots, the method has been applied to the CEDRA rescue robot, which is a ...

Effect of Unsteady Friction Models and FrictionLoss Integration on Transient Pipe Flow
Ashoor, M. (Sharif University of Technology, 20060701)When velocities in the piping systems change rapidly, spectacular accidents occur, due to transientstate pressures where the elastic properties of the pipe and liquid must be considered. This hydraulic transient is commonly ...

Effects of Turbulent Models and Baffle Position on the Hydrodynamics of Settling Tanks
Ashoor, M. (Sharif University of Technology, 20060701)In this paper, the numerical results of hydrodynamic modeling of primary settling tanks are presented. The flow field is assumed to be incompressible and nonbuoyant. The effects of two different types of turbulence model, ...

Improved Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm for Reservoir Operation
Ashoor, M. (Sharif University of Technology, 20060701)In this paper, an improved Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithm is proposed for reservoir operation. Through a collection of cooperative agents called ants, the nearoptimum solution to the reservoir operation can be ...

Kinematic and Dynamic Analysis of the Gait Cycle of AboveKnee Amputees
Ashoor, M. (Sharif University of Technology, 20060701)The change of gait pattern and muscular activity following amputation is thought to be responsible for the higher incidence of joint degenerative disorders observed in amputees. Considering the lack of consistent data in ...
