1. Expert system for assessing the failure of concrete slabs In the Persian Gulf region

A.A. Ramezanianpour; V. Shahhosseini; F. Moodi

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2007, Pages 1-15

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/tej.2006.1237

Abstract
  As we can see in many bridges in the country, due to the lack of implementation of the bridge maintenance management system, the range of failures is gradually It has expanded and led to declining resistance and increasing the vulnerability of bridges. Due to the hot and humid weather conditions and ...  Read More

2. The effect of microsilica on the setting time of high-strength concrete

M. Mazloom

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2007, Pages 17-20

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/tej.2006.1238

Abstract
  This paper is the result of laboratory work performed on the initial and final setting times of high-strength concrete with different percentages of microsilica. The penetration resistance method (ASTM C 403) has been used to determine the setting times of concrete. In this method, first the concrete ...  Read More

A. Rahmani Firooz Jaee; M.H. Afshar

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2007, Pages 21-26

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/tej.2006.1239

Abstract
  In the present paper, using evolutionary strategy, optimization of problems with continuous variables is performed. Evolutionary strategy is one of the meta-exploration methods that is basically provided for problems with continuous variables and can adjust its parameters during the optimization process. ...  Read More

5. Learning to build traditional buildings with building materials: (foundation and wall)

H. Zomarshidi

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2007, Pages 39-47

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/tej.2006.1241

Abstract
  Wrong ways of implementing traditional buildings, especially rural ones, which are due to the lack of use of quality materials, lack of knowledge of the principles of execution andThe technical details are the cause of the most catastrophic accidents from the not-so-terrible earthquakes, but with a lot ...  Read More

6. Influence of Prestraining on Tangent Modulus of Tubular Struts

Seyed M.R. Mortazavi

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2007, Pages 49-56

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/tej.2006.1242

Abstract
  Strain reversal in the inelastic range may cause a dramatic drop in the tangent modulus for mild steel struts. Other material properties also affect the tangent modulus. Consequently the influence of several of these properties is examined for an electric-resistance welded steel tube. The variables chosen ...  Read More

7. A Novel Handoff Prioritization Scheme Based on Propagation and Traffic Criteria

V. Tabataba Vakili; S. Shirvani Moghaddam

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2007, Pages 57-63

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/tej.2006.1243

Abstract
  In this paper, in order to modify and improve the handoff process, which contains initiation and execution phases, three new prioritization schemes have been investigated. These new schemes prioritize handoff requests considering both traffic and propagation conditions. According to suggested schemes, ...  Read More
