  • Treadway, Shane M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Between the years of 1953 and 2005, there were 253 fatalities from rappel failure/error. Some of these deaths may have been prevented if a stopper knot was tied at the end of the rope. Current climbing habits do not reinforce ...
  • Lafferty David (David A.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Robotic arms are indispensable tools in both industry and education. The robotic arm currently used in the MIT class 2.12, Introduction to Robotics, is in need of revision. The arm is heavy, imprecise, bulky, and difficult ...
  • Teixeira, Anthony D. (Anthony Daigo) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Accurately determining the environmental impacts of specific lifestyles is a critical part of moving to reduce those impacts. However, this process is often complicated and tedious. This study strives to simplify that ...
  • Vasquez, Rebecca (Rebecca Ann) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Computing environments such as Matlab that are conventionally used to simulate dynamics of rigid body systems can be used to model interactions between the system and its environment. However, creating these simulations ...
  • Royce, Christina C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Modeling manufacturing systems is a necessary tool in the process of finding a way to analyze and improve design. Increasingly complex systems are now being modeled, and two such systems are the focus of this report. The ...
  • Mwarage, Jessy Mbagara (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    It has been conventional knowledge for as long as ships have existed that the catenary effect of an anchor line augments the efficiency of an anchoring system. This is achieved by making the anchor line as heavy as possible ...
  • Smith, Adiel G. (Adiel Gottlieb); Shulenburger, Luke 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Material Resource Planning (MRP) is a common production system used by many of today's manufacturing facilities. When interactions between a manufacturer and supplier become complex, MRP systems sometimes become chaotic, ...
  • Ellingson, Elizabeth A. (Elizabeth Ann), 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
  • Melani Barreiro, Diego A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    As part of a student owned small satellite project, a preliminary thermal control and heat shield analysis was developed to verify acceptable performance requirements for the system. For the thermal control section, the ...
  • Clayton, Alexander P (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    For this thesis a small scale vacuum chamber assembly was designed and fabricated. This chamber's purpose is to provide high quality vacuum conditions for a variety of samples. Often these samples are in need of precise ...
  • Trangle, Ethan S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Few products exist that offer any form of feedback on a hitter's baseball swing. Since bat speed is so critical in hitting for power, a low cost device that gives information on bat speed and/or acceleration is needed. By ...
  • Szarko, David James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Kundukulam, Vibin A. (Vibin Anto) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Sustained industrial development in developing nations has been an impetus for economic growth and technological advancements for the past several decades, in addition to being a major contributor to poverty reduction. ...
  • Obiajulu, Steven (Steven C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this paper, I present the design, fabrication and characterization of fully soft pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs) with low threshold pressures that are intended for direct cardiac compression (DCC). McKibben type ...
  • Rebula, John (John Robert) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    An adaptive control library was written in Java that allowed a user to programatically specify the dynamics of a system and performed adaptive control. Also, visualization software was written to help monitor and modify ...
  • Luginbuhl, Katharine (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In many locations, soil is held in place by the roots of plants. When these plants are removed or die, the soil loses its cohesive strength and erodes away. We seek to create artificial soil stabilizers that use the same ...
  • Cutting, Alexander Chatfield (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    There are many rural area in the world where cooking fuel is very scarce. One solution to this problem is to use solar energy to cook food. However most people around the world like to cook large meals at night, when the ...
  • Shea, Erin C. (Erin Colleen) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis is the design of a solar-powered carousel that informs the public about the setup and capabilities of solar-powered systems. It is designed as a mobile tool that can be moved among college campuses, businesses, ...
  • El Khaja, Ragheb Mohamad Fawaz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Carbon Dioxide emissions from power production are believed to have significant contributions to the greenhouse effect and global warming. Alternative energy resources, such as solar radiation, may help abate emissions but ...
  • Barnes, Kathryn M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Solar energy has gained more attention in recent years due to increased concerns about the continued use of fossil fuels. Solar energy is a form of renewable energy, and solar energy technology does not release greenhouse ...
