Winter 2016 – Summer 2017
supervised by Prof. Morteza Bastami

M.Sc. Thesis

Abstract: The target of the research was about examining cyclic performance of full-scale high strength self-compacting concrete beams reinforced with hexagonal wire mesh (HWM) and it was aimed at replacing HWM instead of traditional stirrups. The project included rheology tests of self-compacting concrete on different mixtures and compressive strength, tensile strength, flexural strength test for hardened phase of concrete. Furthermore, reinforced concrete beams were tested under monotonic and cyclic loading condition with various scenarios of reinforcing techniques with different HWM types. An economic analysis was conducted to evaluate proposed methods from practical and economic standpoint.

Term Paper of Advanced Reinforced Concrete Structures course

Abstract: The objective of this project was to model and analysis reinforced concrete structures such as beams, columns, shear walls and connections by ABAQUS program and verify the results from the FEM model to existing experimental results in published papers.

Fall 2016
supervised by Prof. Ali Delnavaz

Term Paper of Advanced Concrete Technology course

Abstract: The objective of this project was to conduct research on the different aspects of high strength concrete properties, from microstructures to macrostructures. Both chemical and mechanical behavior of high strength concrete from mixing to the testing of the hardened phase of HSC were studied. To finalize the project, it was necessary to provide written and oral report for the research subject.

Spring 2016
supervised by Prof. Majid Ghasemi

Term Paper of Seismic Design of Structures course

Abstract: The project objective was to design and control a multi-story reinforced concrete special moment resisting frames from scratch. Firstly, the building was modeled and analyzed by ETABS. Afterward, the obtained analysis results were used for manual design of beams, columns, shear walls and connections using ACI codes. Using NEHRP guidelines and provisions, additional controls were also taken into consideration such as reinforcement detailing in beams and columns, joint shear control and loading capacity control, to name but a few.

Spring 2016
supervised by Prof. Hamid Moslemi

Term Paper of Finite Element Method course

Abstract: The project objective was to develop two flexible MATLAB code for analyzing 3D truss structures and 2D cantilever beams. The number of nodes and elements (mesh size), material properties and element type should be defined by the end-user as an input parameter and output results included the stiffness matrix, internal force, displacements, stress and strain for each element or node. Lastly, results from MATLAB code were verified by other FEM analysis packages such as ABAQUS.

Spring 2016
supervised by Prof. Seiyed Taghia

Term Paper of Seismic Retrofitting of Existing Structures course

Abstract: A comprehensive research was conducted on old and new methods for retrofitting of existing bridge structures. Different approaches, including new health monitoring methods, smart sensors and nondestructive testing (NDT) methods were studied. At the final step, 100-page report on damage inspection and retrofit approaches for existing bridge was given both orally and written to finish the project.

Spring 2016
supervised by Prof. Morteza Bastami and Prof. Seiyed Taghia

Term Paper of Seminar course

Abstract: An investigation on high strength concrete behavior on either micro and macro structures were conducted. In addition, HSC limitation on use in reinforced concrete structures was also studied to get a better understanding of HSC application, pros, and cons.

Fall 2015
supervised by Prof. Majid Ghasemi

Term Paper of Structural Dynamics course

Abstract: The project objective was aimed at developing a MATLAB numerical model for analyzing multi-degree of freedom structures under earthquake acceleration records. A multi-story building with extreme torsional irregularity was analyzed by ETABS under specific earthquake acceleration records using time-history analysis method. The same building was programmed and analyzed in MATLAB by numerical methods. Finally, results of numerical models such as mode shape, frequency, period, modal mass, modal stiffness and structure displacement responses for each degree of freedom were verified by making comparison with ETABS outputs.
