  • Chiluveru, Sudhir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Thle Mannesmann process is the preferred method in the oil industry for fabrication of hollow pipes. The critical phenomenon in this process is the formation of a small round hole at the center of the cylindrical billet ...
  • Choo, Shawn (Shawn Sheng Wen) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    One of the steps in stowage planning is crane split and sequencing, which determines the order of container discharging and loading jobs quay cranes (QCs) perform so that the completion time (or makespan) of ship operation ...
  • Uichanco, Joline Ann Villaranda (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, we consider the classical newsvendor model and various important extensions. We do not assume that the demand distribution is known, rather the only information available is a set of independent samples ...
  • Wang, Jingxi, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This thesis proposes a decentralized reward-based incentive mechanism to address the problem of noncomplying subsidiaries when the parent company wish to meet its targeted energy consumption level. Besides its effectiveness ...
  • Vechart, Andrew (Andrew Peter) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Air blast-induced traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) represent a significant percentage of military personnel injuries observed in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). Prevalence of blast-induced ...
  • Bala Chandran, Ram (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    A number of constitutive theories have arisen describing materials which, by nature, exhibit a non-local response. The formulation of boundary value problems, in this case, leads to a system of equations involving higher-order ...
  • Foo, Yong Ning (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In the highly competitive retail industry, merchandise out-of-stock (OOS) is a significant and pertinent problem. This thesis performs a diagnostic analysis on retail out-of-stocks using empirical data from a major retailer. ...
  • Lian, Zhengyi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis focuses on the numerical solution of a kinetic description of small scale dilute gas flows when the Navier-Stokes description breaks down. In particular, it investigates alternative solution techniques for the ...
  • Sethuraman, Sandeep (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis, we present a modification of an existing methodology to obtain a hierarchy of lower and upper bounds on moments of solutions of linear differential equations. The motivation for change is to obtain tighter ...
  • Sun, Zhibo, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    We investigate the effectiveness of an (s, S, p) policy relative to an (s, S, A, p) policy in a single product, periodic review, finite horizon model with stochastic multiplicative demand and fixed ordering cost, in which ...
  • Men, Han (Han Abby) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis, the reduced-basis method is applied to nonlinear time-dependent convection-diffusion parameterized partial differential equations (PDEs). A proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) procedure is used for the ...
  • Wang, Yanbo, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, we compare computationally four methods for solving optimization problems under uncertainty: * Robust Optimization (RO) * Adaptive Robust Optimization (ARO) * Data Driven Optimization (DDO) * stochastic ...
  • Liang, Jiajie, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The symmetry function of a convex set offers us numerous useful information about the set in relation to probabilistic theory and geometric properties. The symmetry function is a measure of how symmetric the convex set is, ...
  • Yu, Qian, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    We study a periodic-reviewed, infinite horizon serial network inventory control problem. The demands in different periods are independent of each other and follow an identical Poisson distribution. Unsatisfied demands are ...
  • Alfaris, Anas (Anas Faris) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This thesis develops a framework for constructing an Evolutionary Design Model (EDM) that would enhance the design of complex systems through an efficient process. The framework proposed is generic and suggests a group of ...
  • Nguyen, Van Vinh, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This thesis proposes a novel approach to address the issues of efficiency and fairness when multiple portfolios are rebalanced simultaneously. A fund manager who rebalances multiple portfolios needs to not only optimize ...
  • Zhang, Lei, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Conventional fast integral equation solvers seem to be ideal approaches for simulating 3-D nanophotonic devices, as these devices are considered to be open structures, generating fields in both an interior channel and in ...
  • Huynh, Thanh Le Ngoc (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We develop a fast enriched finite element method for solving Poisson equations involving complex geometry interfaces by using regular Cartesian grids. The presence of interfaces is accounted for by developing suitable jump ...
  • Fox, Justin M., 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In recent years, many groups have numerically modeled the near-anode region of a Hall thruster in attempts to better understand the associated physics of thruster operation. Originally, simulations assumed a continuum ...
  • Rose, Robin Sebastian Koske (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The objective of this thesis is to examine trends in Offshore Support Vessel (OSV) design and determine the future characteristics of OSVs based on industry insight and supply chain models. Specifically, this thesis focuses ...
