  • Albaiz, Abdulaziz (Abdulaziz Mohammad) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Developing parallel numerical applications, such as simulators and solvers, involves a variety of challenges in dealing with data partitioning, workload balancing, data dependencies, and synchronization. Many numerical ...
  • Narayanan Subramani, Deepak (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The growing use of autonomous underwater vehicles and underwater gliders for a variety of applications gives rise to new requirements in the operation of these vehicles. One such important requirement is optimization of ...
  • Alhubail, Maitham Makki (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis presents a new simple lightweight C++ thread based parallelization library, intended for use in numerical algorithms. It provides simple multitasking and task synchronization functions. The library hides all ...
  • Mueller, Caitlin T (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis focuses on visualizing high-dimensional design spaces for early-stage design problems in structural engineering and related disciplines. The design space, which is defined as the n + 1-dimensional surface that ...
  • Kudo, Jun, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The ability to achieve accurate predictions of turbulent flow over arbitrarily complex geometries proves critical in the advancement of aerospace design. However, quantitatively accurate results from modern Computational ...
  • Vidal Codina, Ferran (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Recently there has been a growing interest in quantifying the effects of random inputs in the solution of partial differential equations that arise in a number of areas, including fluid mechanics, elasticity, and wave ...
  • Conjeevaram Krishnakumar, Naveen Kartik (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, we developed a Bayesian approach to estimate the detailed composition of an unknown feedstock in a chemical plant by combining information from a few bulk measurements of the feedstock in the plant along ...
  • Wachtel, Amanda M. (Amanda Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    As cities evolve in size and complexity, their component systems become more interconnected. Comprehensive modeling and simulation is needed to capture interactions and correctly assess the impact of changes. This thesis ...
  • Yamani, Jana H. (Jana Hashim) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This work considers an urban traffic network, and represents it as a Markovian queueing network. This work proposes an analytical approximation of the time-dependent joint queue-length distribution of the network. The ...
  • Yuan, Rong, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this research we model a job shop that produces a set of discrete parts in a make-to-stock setting. The intent of the research is to develop a planning model to determine the optimal operating tactics that minimize the ...
  • Bolin, Christopher E. (Christopher Eric) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Life cycle assessment (LCA) is one methodology for assessing a product's impact on the environment. LCA has grown in popularity recently as consumers and governments request more information concerning the environmental ...
  • Abramovich, Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In the airline industry, spill refers to passenger demand turned away from a flight because demand has exceeded capacity. The accurate estimation of spill and the lost revenue it implies is an important parameter in airline ...
  • Ni, Yuzhao (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, we designed and implemented a crowdsourcing system to annotate mouse behaviors in videos; this involves the development of a novel clip-based video labeling tools, that is more efficient than traditional ...
  • Song, Chen, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This research investigates a complex automated manufacturing system at three levels to improve its efficiency. In the system there are parallel loops of stations connected by a single closed conveyor. In each loop there ...
  • Lusardi, Christopher (Christopher Dean) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Time dependent simulations are used to characterize the unsteady impeller blade loading due to imipeller-diffuser interaction in centrifugal compressor stages. The capability of simulations are assessed by comparing results ...
  • Mitra, Subhadeep (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Particle filtering is a technique used for state estimation from noisy measurements. In fluid dynamics, a popular problem called Lagrangian data assimilation (LaDA) uses Lagrangian measurements in the form of tracer positions ...
  • Ustun, Berk (Tevfik Berk) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Stochastic programming models are large-scale optimization problems that are used to facilitate decision-making under uncertainty. Optimization algorithms for such problems need to evaluate the expected future costs of ...
  • Davis, Andrew D. (Andrew Donaldson) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The cryosphere is comprised of about 33 million km³ of ice, which corresponds to 70 meters of global mean sea level equivalent [30]. Simulating continental ice masses, such as the Antarctic or Greenland Ice Sheets, requires ...
  • Armour, Jessica D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis develops and evaluates Gap-tooth DSMC (GT-DSMC), a direct Monte Carlo simulation procedure for dilute gases combined with the Gap-tooth method of Gear, Li, and Kevrekidis. The latter was proposed as a means of ...
  • Koo, Jamin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Over 10,000 premature mortalities per year globally are attributed to the exposure to particulate matter caused by aircraft emissions. Unlike previous studies that focus on the regional impacts from the aircraft emissions ...
