    (1) Mesoscopic traffic simulation model for solving transportation problems of GTA

    (Presentation will be conducted in Farsi.)

    Transportation models generally can be classified into microscopic, mesoscopic, macroscopic, and metascopic models. Microscopic models study individual elements of transportation systems, such as individual vehicle dynamics and individual traveler behavior. Mesoscopic models analyze transportation elements in small groups, within which elements are considered homogeneous. A typical example is vehicle platoon dynamics and household-level travel behavior. Macroscopic models deal with aggregated characteristics of transportation elements, such as aggregated traffic flow dynamics and zonal-level travel demand analysis.

    In this presentation, first, the microscopic and macroscopic models for transportation planning and traffic analysis will be discussed briefly and their strengths and weaknesses will be evaluated. Then the new generation of Mesoscopic simulation models will be addressed as the missing link in the analytical chain. Finally, the most important GTA traffic issues and the existing trends will be overviewed which justifies the utilization of Mesoscopic models to resolve them.

    Speaker: Dr Behnam Amini

    (2) Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer(GFRP) Rebar for Concrete Structures

    (Presentation will be conducted in Farsi.)

    Durability of concrete structures today is an important topic. In recent years, much research work has been carried out to find out if Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Re-bar can be the answer to obtain high durable concrete structures. Corrosions of steel and the carbon dioxide foot print of steel and many other problems associated to steel has led the industry to look for an alternative material to steel.

    Use of Composite materials can be widely seen in building components today, Fiber Reinforced Polymer Structural profiles and Reinforcement bar are the two main products that are growing everyday due to the problems associated with steel.

    Today Fiber Reinforced Polymer Re-bar have been widely used in Concrete Structures as a primary and permanent reinforcing bar. The use of GFRP re-bar has known to be an economical way to solve the many problems associated to steel bars, such as corrosion, thermal and electrical conductivity, high density and low strength.

    Speaker: Mr Borna Hajimiragha

    Composite Designer and Engineer Analysis

    M.Eng., Mechanical Engineering, Concordia University

    B.Sc., Industrial Engineering, Eastern Mediterranean University

    Borna graduated with a master degree in composite material specialize in Pultrusion Process, with excellent knowledge in Pultrusion process, Finite Element Analysis and behavior of composite material he was one of the first few person to develop a standard FEA for Communication towers, utility poles using GFRP material with error of plus/minus 3%.

    By having this knowledge he spent last three years on research and development of a GFRP rebar, a product to overcome and solve all the problems of existing GFRP rebar in Market.

    By Far MST-BAR that has developed in last 5 years is one the most advanced GFRP bar in the market to reinforced a concrete structure with life time of over 100 years.

    About Dory:

    My Yoga Journey started in Hamilton where I lived for 10 years and attended McMaster University for my Undergrad and Master’s Degree. I took my first Yoga class in 2008 at a Moksha Yoga studio. At the time I just wanted to try something new and ease my stress from exams and school life. Through practicing Yoga not only did I find a supportive community to be a part of, but I also gained a healthier lifestyle and I improved my mind’s and body’s fitness as well as a sense of my body and movement. Getting more involved in the yoga community helped me find a more balanced perspective of life and it ignited a passion to learn the deeper concepts of Yoga. My curiosity lead to the teachers’ training with Moksha/Modo Yoga. In July 2015 I took a journey to Kelowna BC. for the initial training which was an intense 300 hour training. It was after this trip that I realized my calling; I needed to know more and to share with others the benefits of Yoga and what I had learned. I started teaching right away while continuing my training to complete a 500 hour certificate in 2016. Since then I have lead Yin/Yang Yoga classes, Core Specific classes, Kids Yoga and have received my advance certification in Power Flow Yoga. As I am a student of life, my love and passion for Yoga grows with every class I teach and/or practice. I consider myself lucky and I find learning and sharing this ancient knowledge to be a profound privilege. I believe my background in science and physical anthropology bolsters my teaching methods. By offering insights into the physical purpose and function of each postures, I facilitate an easy to learn and easy to follow practice. As a certified Reflexologist I incorporate adjustments and massages throughout the class in order to further assist the students; helping them develop better postures and balance of mind. My mission is to while evoking a physical and mental challenge, to also provide support, guidance and ease for the students; creating a safe space for growth, awareness and compassion. My task and vision in learning and teaching Yoga is best put in the words of my favorite poet Rumi; “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
