  • Krishna, Tushar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Adding multiple processing cores on the same chip has become the de facto design choice as we continue extracting more and more performance/watt from our chips in every technology generation. In this context, the interconnect ...
  • Bakst, Alexander (Alexander G.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Computer aided design (CAD) applications such as Autodesk Civil 3D allow the user to specify design constraints for a number of common geometries. These applications typically prompt the user for the required constraints ...
  • Akamphon, Sappinandana (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The present work looks into the question of optimizing the performance of product launch decisions-in particular, the decisions of product development duration and manufacturing ramp-up. It presents an innovative model for ...
  • Ali, Zehra (Zehra Hyder) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    There is a great need to improve energy efficiency of low-income housing, since people who can afford it least have to pay a significant portion of their income to make their homes more habitable or else live with greater ...
  • Duerk, Donna P (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1980)
    Designing environments to accommodate people in wheelchairs is far more than ramps and wide toilet stalls built according to the state building code. This study attempts to illuminate the functional imperatives behind ...
  • Shu, I-hsiang, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    In order for a team of autonomous agents to successfully complete its mission, the agents must be able to quickly re-plan on the fly as unforeseen events arise in the environment. This requires temporally flexible plans ...
  • Hanson, Alex J. (Alex Jordan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    High frequency switching in power converters offers the benefits of high power density and faster transient response; however, high frequency losses have limited efforts to increase frequency into the HF (3-30 MHz) regime. ...
  • Cermak, Nathan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Single cells constitute a fundamental unit of biological organization, yet most laboratory techniques are unable to characterize single cell behavior and instead measure average properties of many thousands of cells. Among ...
  • Teicher, Jonathan Lawrence (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1989)
    This thesis explores housing through the filter of enabling, an Elizabethan word which has come to be associated with inhabitant empowerment. It proposes the existence of basic cultural, economic and constructional as well ...
  • Fay, Matthew Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Stories are an essential piece of human intelligence. They exist in countless forms and varieties seamlessly integrated into every facet of our lives. Stories fuel human understanding and our explanations of the world. ...
  • Petruczok, Christy D. (Christy Danielle) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Initiated Chemical Vapor Deposition (iCVD) is a versatile, one-step process for synthesizing conformal and functional polymer thin films on a variety of substrates. This thesis emphasizes the development of tools to further ...
  • Duarte Oliveira, Jorge Miguel dos Santos Fradinho (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The USA healthcare industry has recently undergone significant pressure to become competitive and think innovatively due to its increased growth as a percentage of the GDP, which was as much as 14. 1% in 2001. Additionally ...
  • Loving, James Howard (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    As the Internet of Things (IoT) grows, malware will increasingly threaten Internet security and stability. Many actors, from individuals installing antivirus on their personal computers to law enforcement conducting botnet ...
  • Tomlin, Grace C. (Grace Catherine) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Manufacturing Flexibility is a broad term used to describe a metric that can be measured in many different ways. Current industry experts agree that Flexibility is one of the key measures that will help the automotive ...
  • Anwar, Zubair (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    State-of-the-art methods for simulating viscoelastic flows couple the conservation equations for mass and momentum with a model from kinetic theory that describes the microstructural state of the polymer. Introduction of ...
  • Turpeinen, Marko Sakari, 1968- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Over the past four years the research described in this thesis has enabled community groups to become collaborative content producers on the Internet. These groups use computer-mediated networking to publish their stories ...
  • Blanchard, Allan (Allan B.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Alloy anodes form a promising path to the use of multi-cation electrolytes by increasing chemical stability. In this study, a lithium-magnesium alloy anode was developed such that lower cost and lower melting temperature ...
  • Adams, Katie J. (Katie Jane), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Eames, Adam McLendon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Wireless sensor networks can provide real time navigation instructions to robots or people attempting to travel in hazardous environments. This thesis presents the design, analysis, and implementation of a distributed ...
  • Dolak, Jessica (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Manufacturing organizations around the world strive to improve processes with varying degrees of realization. There is no right way or latest and greatest process that can guarantee success, therefore the approach, and not ...
