Dispersion of water sprays in a transverse air jet and the aging of spray nozzles
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
This thesis explores spray cooling methods used in the manufacturing process of glass fibers. At the onset of the manufacturing process glass fibers are extruded from a pool of molten glass through an array of holes in a ...
Scalable manufacturing of hierarchical nanostructures for thermal management
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
The focus of this thesis is a new simple and scalable process to make surface coatings that have multiple length scales, or hierarchical features. Typically, the formation of hierarchical structures involves multiple steps ...
Development of an inertial generator for embedded applications in rotating environments
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
Inertial generators are devices that generate electrical energy from their inertial motion, and have only one mechanical connection with their surroundings. This makes them suitable power sources for embedded systems ...
Design and construction of an electrically commutated A-C motor with a fixed torque angle.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1974)
Force feedback hydraulic servo for advanced assembly machines.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1975)
Modeling and control of a hot micro-embossing machine
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
As the market for polymer micro- and nano-devices expands there is an ever-present need for a manufacturing standard to mass produce these parts. A number of techniques for fabricating these devices are soft lithography, ...
Perforation cleanup as a function of rock permeability and underbalance
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1991)
Glycocalyx acting as a mechanotransducer of fluid shear stress
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
It is widely recognized that fluid shearing forces acting on endothelial cells (ECs) have a profound effect on EC morphology, structure and function. Recent investigations in vivo have indicated the presence of a thick ...
Design space exploration and optimization using modern ship design tools
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
Modern Naval Architects use a variety of computer design tools to explore feasible options for clean sheet ship designs. Under the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division ...
