    • Design of water shock tube for testing shell materials 

      Ji, Hongjuan; Mustafa, Mohamad; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Ewan, Bruce C.; Moatamedi, Mojtaba (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-04-15)
      This paper presents design considerations for a shock tube experimental rig used to investigate the dynamic failure mechanisms of shell geometries subjected to water shock impact loading. In such setup, it is desirable that the drive pressure used within the tube can provide a wide range of impulsive loads on the test structures and some flexibility can be achieved on the applied pulse durations. ...
    • Dynamic plastic response of beams subjected to localised pulse loads 

      Thil, Nicolas; Mehreganian, Navid; Moatamedi, Mojtaba; Louca, Luke A.; Soleiman Fallah, Arash (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-31)
      Localised blast loads give rise to high gradients of overpressure detrimental to structural elements as beams and plates. This article presents an analytical study on the dynamic plastic response of beams made of a ductile metallic material due to close-in pulse pressure loading. The close-in pressure load is characterised by a spatially varying function constant over a central region and exponentially ...
    • Lagrangian and ALE Formulations For Soil Structure Coupling with Explosive Detonation 

      Souli, M; Albahkali, E; Shahrour, I; Moatamedi, Mojtaba (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Simulation of Soil-Structure Interaction becomes more and more the focus of computational engineering in civil and mechanical engineering, where FEM (Finite element Methods) for soil and structural mechanics and Finite Volume for CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) are dominant. New advanced formulations have been developed for FSI (Fluid Structure Interaction) applications using ALE (Arbitrary ...
    • Numerical simulation of the dynamic response in pulse-loaded fibre–metal-laminated plates 

      Nwankwo, Ebuka; Fallah, Arash Soleiman; Moatamedi, Mojtaba; Louca, Luke A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-27)
      This article presents a three-dimensional constitutive model to replicate the dynamic response of blast-loaded fibre–metal laminates made of 2024-0 aluminium alloy and woven composite (glass fibre–reinforced polypropylene). Simulation of the dynamic response is challenging when extreme localised loads are of concern and requires reliable material constitutive models as well as accurate modelling ...
    • Quantitative analysis of accuracy of voidage computations in CFD-DEM Simulations 

      Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Scott, Stuart A.; Virk, Muhammad Shakeel; Moatamedi, Mojtaba (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    • Shock Tube. Detail overview of equipment and instruments in the shock tube experimental setup 

      Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Kapaya, Juma; Moatamedi, Mojtaba (Book; Bok, 2015)
      The shock tube is a device in which a normal shock wave is produced by the interaction of fluids at significantly high-pressure difference. The shock tube is comprised of two sections known as driver and driven sections. These two sections are interacted with the high-speed valve or a bursting disc. When the interaction happens, a shock wave forms almost instantaneously and propagates into the driven ...
    • Study of Acoustics Properties of SK One Component Polyurethane and its Application in Arctic Marine Structures 

      Xue, Hui; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Moatamedi, Mojtaba; Sun, Zhiheng; Souli, Mhmed (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2016-12-08)
      Marine noise reduction tends to be challenging and requires a comprehensive engineering approach. The soundproofing materials for marine noise reduction are usually exposed to high temperatures, potential fluid or oil spills, engine maintenance and a high airflow environment. This work looks into the acoustic proofing properties of a non-toxic material ‘SK One Component Polyurethane’ developed by ...
    • Study of Ice Adhesion Behavior of SK One Component Polyurethane 

      Xue, Hui; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Moatamedi, Mojtaba; Sun, Zhiheng (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2016-12)
      Ice adhesion causes many serious problems such as aircraft accidents, navigational issues on ships, and power loss on wind turbines. These challenges are mainly associated with the acute behavior of ice adhesion. The ice adheres when water seeps into the microscopic pores of the material substrate and freezes, thereby, forming an interlocking mechanism. Therefore, surface roughness has a significant ...
    • Thermal Properties of SK One Component Polyurethane using Experiments and Multiphysics Simulations 

      Ahmad, Tanveer; Xue, Hui; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Sun, Zhiheng; Linmei, Nie; Moatamedi, Mojtaba (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2016-12-08)
      This study proposes to determine the thermal conductivity of SK One Component Polyurethane (SKOCP) developed by China Institute of Water Resources & Hydropower Research Beijing IWHR-KHL Co. Ltd. SKOCP provides excellent proof of aging and chemical resistance of this material. It is non-toxic, acts as a good anti-seepage, offers anti-abrasion and good anti-freezing performance. In addition, it has ...
