These design variables are the lifter height H, the working coefficient of friction µ, lifter face inclination angle φ, steel ball size r<sub>B</sub>, mill rotational velocity ω, and mill size R. In order to optimize the operating conditions and avoid severe impacts to its shell liners, the effect of these parameters need to be studied. The effect of lifter height (H) and the coefficient of friction (μ) on some of the main impact characteristics are simultaneously investigated for a SAG mill in Sarcheshmeh Copper Complex. It was shown that as the lifter height or the coefficient of friction increases, the impact position tends to move upward, but the maximum impact force and the absolute value of the maximum principal stress decreases, reducing the impact severity.</em>http://jmee.isme.ir/article_25486_4efed1c61d057d5ff39380022aba9ef3.pdfIranian Society of Mechanical EngineeringIranian Journal of Mechanical Engineering Transactions of the ISME1605-972710120090301Parametric Study of Fuel Vapor Concentration Distribution Due to Vaporization of Fuel Droplets in Free Atmosphere233625487ENSeyed MostafaHosein Ali PoorIran University of Science and TechnologyS.

M.DoustdarHead of Mechanical Engineering Department, Imam Hossein University, TehranJournal Article20090101<em>The growth of a two-phase cloud of a liquid fuel in a stagnant atmosphere is studied using computational fluid dynamic techniques. In order to predict the danger and hazard of such cloud in open atmosphere it is very important to determine the fuel concentration in the cloud, especially in the far field region from the fuel reservoir. The results show that with omission of droplets break up, the vaporization rate becomes very low due to large droplets and vapor cloud would be highly elongated. If the collision of droplets is neglected, vapor volume is higher. The results also show that when the height of device is increased, the cloud will have more symmetry. Any decrease in injection velocity leads to lower radial expansion of cloud. Reduction of injection time duration decreases the dangerous part of cloud slightly.</em>http://jmee.isme.ir/article_25487_438b54fe09450fe17075e1ec4be79dd5.pdfIranian Society of Mechanical EngineeringIranian Journal of Mechanical Engineering Transactions of the ISME1605-972710120090301Some New Analytical Techniques for Duffing Oscillator with Very Strong Nonlinearity375425488ENA.FarshidianfarDepartment of Mechanical Engineering Ferdowsi University of MashhadN.NickmehrDepartment of Mechanical Engineering Ferdowsi University of MashhadJournal Article20090101<em>The current paper focuses on some analytical techniques to solve the non-linear Duffing oscillator with large nonlinearity.

Toosi University of TechnologyJournal Article20090101<em>In the present paper, an exact solution for transient response of an infinitely long functionally graded thick-walled cylinder subjected to </em><em>dynamic pressures at the boundary surfaces</em><em> is presented </em><em>for arbitrary initial conditions</em><em>. The cylinder is assumed to have a plane-strain condition and the dynamic pressures are assumed to be imposed uniformly and axisymmetrically on the boundary surfaces. Material properties of the cylinder are assumed to vary through the thickness according to a power law function. In contrast to many previous researches, the FGM cylinder is not divided into isotropic sub-cylinders. A solution approach associated with the expansion of the transient wave functions in terms of a series of the Eigen functions is employed. The dynamic radial displacement expression is divided into quasi-static and dynamic parts and for each part, an analytical solution is presented. By this method, radial displacement and stress distributions in the functionally graded thick-walled cylinders are obtained for various values of the exponent of the power law function, various radius ratios, and various dynamic loads. Finally, advantages of the proposed method are discussed.</em>http://jmee.isme.ir/article_25489_9bcc7ad54ff5c026b1cf24194153257a.pdf
