  • Dieudonne, Rudy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    For many decades, various non-governmental agencies, and political entities have been working to resolve issues relating to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene within developing countries around the world. One area within the ...
  • Bos > AIR 
    Lee, Kevin Young (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The advent of air travel has produced a building typology completely new to the 20th century. The outdated planning of regions for airports render most existing airports as isolated, autonomous instances in the urban ...
  • Shiue, Eric Chun-Jen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    D-glucaric acid is a naturally occurring compound which has been explored for a plethora of potential uses, including biopolymer production, cancer and diabetes treatment, cholesterol reduction, and as a replacement for ...
  • Choi, Joshua (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis presents a system that uses games. It allows people to participate in the process of designing an architectural space. The site for the design project of this experimental methodology is a courtyard on MIT ...
  • WorkHotel 
    Dixon, Alexander M. (Alexander Mackenzie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The office has for decades been touted as a model of flexibility, the super-generic shell facilitating the ultra-customized fit out. However, as technology fuels a de-territorialization of the workplace and employees are ...
  • Lee, Chia Chieh (Chia Chieh Jessica) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    There is a total of more than 9700 convenient stores in Taiwan. In Taipei, the capital of the country, there is 1 convenient store in every 400 meters, which is equivalent to one convenient store in every 5 minutes. This ...
  • Peters, Andreas, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis addresses the uncharted inlet and nacelle design space for low pressure ratio fans for advanced aeroengines. A key feature in low fan pressure ratio (FPR) propulsors with short inlets and nacelles is the increased ...
  • Wechsung, Achim (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Optimization is a key activity in any engineering discipline. Global optimization methods, in particular, strive to solve nonconvex problems, which often arise in chemical engineering, and deterministic algorithms such as ...
  • Ferguson, Todd R. (Todd Richard) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The focus of this thesis work is the application of non-equilibrium thermodynamics in lithium-ion battery modeling. As the demand for higher power and longer lasting batteries increases, the search for materials suitable ...
  • Altman, Kyle (Kyle Lane) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Hypoxia: a phenomenon that occurs in aquatic environments as dissolved oxygen is reduced in concentration to a point where it becomes detrimental to organisms living in the system. Since the mid 20th century, oceanographers ...
  • Covarrubias, Daniela (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Textiles have always played a critical role in the spaces we inhabit. Although textiles are often in opposition to what we consider to be architecture. Architecture is permanent, grounded, fixed; textiles are temporary, ...
  • Barker, Kyle (Kyle Lawrence) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Since 1950 the average US home has grown from 1100 square feet to over 2600 square feet. During this same period the average family size shrunk by a person, meaning that per capita residential square footage has more than ...
  • Feng, Feifei, M. Arch. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The thesis examines the social-political issues resulting from the immense expansion of mundane housing developments in China under a totalitarian state. Initially influenced by the Soviet Union in the 1950s, the four to ...
  • Huang, Li, M. Arch. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis investigates the nature of burial place as a daily public space to mourn people's loss and celebrate their life in the ordinary cities. It seeks a new architectural typology of cemetery to rebuild a relationship ...
  • Cui, Jian, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The photoluminescence spectrum of an ensemble of emitters is the result of the homogeneous "natural" spectra of single emitters subjected to interparticle inhomogeneities and perturbations from the environment. For ...
  • De Soria-Santacruz Pich, Maria (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The inner Van Allen radiation belt traps highly energetic protons sourced from solar storms, cosmic rays and other processes. These particles can rapidly damage the space systems orbiting the inner region, limiting access ...
  • Everson, Matthew S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Fine-group whole-core reactor analysis remains one of the long sought goals of the reactor physics community. Such a detailed analysis is typically too computationally expensive to be realized on anything except the largest ...
  • Stern, Michael C. (Michael Craig) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis describes a new strategy for carbon dioxide (CO₂) separations based on amine sorbents, which are electrochemically-mediated to facilitate the desorption and regeneration steps of the separation cycle. The ...
  • Lee, Jaeyual (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Protestants today seem to approach public worship with one or the other of two quite different attitudes. Many Protestants understand worship as primarily a matter of feelings; others see worship as basically work done in ...
  • Lee, Juney, M. Arch. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Skyscraper is a by-product of 19th century American industrialism. spirit, and disaster. The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was a catastrophe that necessitated dense and rapid reconstruction, both of which the high-rise provided. ...
