Subject: Request for a PhD Project
I am working on my PhD in Khajeh Nasir University of Tehran. I have a Bachelor degree in Mechanics of Solids (1992) and a Master degree in Mechanics of Manufacturing (1996), both degrees are from the Polytechnic University of Tehran. I have completed courses in Composites , Heat Treatment , Mechanical Metallurgy, Shape Memory Alloys ,Nondestructive Testing and Fracture Mechanics.
I am going to pass my PhD Qualifying Exam Wednesday. I can also go to abroad (let say January 2004 or at most one term later) for my sabbatical. I will be covered for expenses for one term by my University, but if the university that I go there, accepts the costs of my research. I like to do my project in Composites having Shape Memory Alloys, I decided to ask you if you could offer me any project at the above subject.
Let me introduce myself briefly, I have also translated a few books from English to Persian like, Statics by McLean and Nelson, Dynamics of Machines by Soni, Differential Equation by Bronson, Internal Combustion Engines by Rogofski, and Physics (part of Mechanics) by Halliday. I have also made a wheel chair for handicaps that can move up and down the stairs(that is a patent), and I have also worked on a safety car chair that reduces the probability of cutting the spinal cord by 400 percent. Moreover, I have experience in lecturing in some of our universities, especially The Shahid Rajaie University of Tehran for 20 terms now. I have lectured these courses: Statics, Dynamics of Machines, Differential Equations, Engineering Drawing, AutoCAD, and Machine Workshop.
Finally, I want to like to introduce my project supervisors: Dr. Ali Shokoohfar, who has a post Doctoral from M.I.T. University, and his supervisor was Prof. M.C. Flemings and Dr. Mohammad Reza Khalili, who has a Ph.D. degree from I.I.T. Delhi , and his supervisor was Prof. R.K. Mitall.
I hope to hear from you soon, so I could try to start processing my application for my sabbatical. Please accept my sincere thanks for your time and consideration.
