Investigation of in-vivo total knee arthroplasty biomechanics using a dual fluoroscopic imaging system
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
While contempary total knee arthroplasty has been successful in improving the quality of life for those suffering from severe osteoarthritis, the function of these patients has not reached normal levels for their age group. ...
On the development of an efficient truly meshless discretization procedure in computational mechanics
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
The objective of this thesis is to present an efficient and reliable meshless computational technique - the method of finite spheres - for the solution of boundary value problems on complex domains. This method is truly ...
A Permanent Magnetic Dipole Reaction Sphere Actuator for Spacecraft Attitude Control
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2021-06)
This thesis presents decoupled, closed-loop, suspension and rotation of a spherical dipole permanent magnet. The spherical magnet is used as the rotor in a bench-level prototype reaction sphere actuator for spacecraft ...
