Investigation the effect of Al2O3-SiO2 ceramic coating on the hot oxidation kinetics of steel products in preheating furnaces

Mahammad Laribaghal; Mehdi Khorasanian; Mostafa Eskandari; Seyed Reza Alavi Zaree

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 18 February 2024

  In steel production plants, such as those manufacturing sheets, pipes, and round bars, raw materials are annealed in preheating furnaces at approximately 1200 oC before undergoing hot deformation process. Substantial oxidation and loss of raw steel materials occur in preheating furnaces, resulting in ...  Read More

Failure Mechanisms and Solutions for Fin-Pass Rolls Repair-Ring at an Electric Resistance Welding Pipe Plant

Mahammad Laribaghal; mehdi Torfi; Mehdi Khorasanian; Seyed Reza Alavi Zaree

Volume 10, Issue 4 , October 2021, , Pages 31-42

  Fin-pass rolls are the latest series of rolls in electric resistance welding (ERW) pipe production lines that form the sheets to tubular shape and adjust the edges of the sheet for welding. The rolls (made of AISI 8622 steel) lose their proper function after about 10 years of operation due to severe ...  Read More

Simplified Automatic Seismic to Well Tying Using Smooth Dynamic Time Warping Technique in R

Afshin Amiri; Majid Bagheri; Mohammad Ali Riahi

Volume 9, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 85-92

  Seismic well tying is a crucial part of the interpretation phase in exploration seismology. Tying wells usually involves forward modeling a synthetic seismogram from sonic and density logs and then matching the obtained synthetic seismogram to the seismic reflection data. A huge amount of time is required ...  Read More

Analyzing the Illumination and Resolution in Seismic Survey Designing

Sadegh Saffarzadeh; Abbdolrahim Javaherian; Hossein Hasani; Maryam Sadri

Volume 7, Issue 4 , October 2018, , Pages 1-12

  Seismic modeling aids the geophysicists to have a better understanding of the subsurface image before the seismic acquisition, processing, and interpretation. In this regard, seismic survey modeling is employed to make a model close to the real structure and to obtain very realistic synthetic seismic ...  Read More

Using a novel method for random noise reduction of seismic records

Majid Bagheri; Mohammad Ali Riahi

Volume 7, Issue 3 , July 2018, , Pages 65-72

  Random or incoherent noise is an important type of seismic noise, which can seriously affect the quality of the data. Therefore, decreasing the level of this category of noises is necessary for increasing the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of seismic records. Random noises and other events overlap each ...  Read More
