  • Beecher, Eric M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In this thesis we analyzed a joint created for a medical walker currently in the prototyping stage of development. The walker is designed to help a user stand up from a seated position. The joint holds two legs of the ...
  • Boghossian, John G (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis analyzes the thermodynamics of a power system coupling two renewable heat sources: low-temperature geothermal and a high-temperature solar. The process, referred to as a dual-temperature geothermal-solar Kalina ...
  • Tims, Jacob (Jacob F.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    An exoskeleton was designed with the primary goal of enhancing the maximum dynamic capability of a human, thus allowing the user to run faster, jump higher, or traverse challenging terrain. This paper presents the mechanical ...
  • Mo, Stacy (Stacy M.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In this thesis, I analyzed, modelled, and optimized two different techniques of the long jump: the hitchkick and hang. Using video data, I made a dynamic model of both techniques, then created a cost function that took ...
  • Abreau, Joaquin A. (Joaquin Arturo) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • O'Neill, Shaun P. (Shaun Patrick), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Running and jogging (a slower, more rhythmic form of running) have become increasingly popular today. An unfortunate by-product of this broad interest in running has been the growing incidence of overuse injuries (the ...
  • Torres, Edgar, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The dynamics of the head and torso during activities that require clear vision is a topic that has previously been studied. These studies have examined the relationships between the angular velocities of the head in pitch ...
  • Bates, Warren (Warren W.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The current understanding of the dynamics of the human head, and the demands placed on its control and stability systems, is based largely on the results of experiments conducted in artificial settings, such as when subjects ...
  • Vega González, Myraida Angélica (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This study examines the dynamic characteristics of the in-plane tunable stiffness scanning microscope probe for an atomic force microscope (AFM). The analysis was carried out using finite element analysis (FEA) methods for ...
  • Benjaminson, Emma Claire (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Micro-contact roll printing is an emerging alternative to photolithography as a means of cheaply manufacturing MEMS devices. Micro-contact roll printing control systems can regulate the printing pressure of a polydimethylsiloxane ...
  • Maragh, Janille Maria (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis describes and portrays the use of AprilTags, 2D tools used for the identification of locations in 3D space, to control the position and angular velocity of a rotating object by way of a PD controller. This ...
  • Nikandrou, Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Developing a wind farm involves many variables that can make or break the success of a potential wind farm project. Some variables such as wind data (capacity factor, wind rose, wind speed, etc.) are readily available in ...
  • Marmolejo, Phillip Christian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This report includes a discussion of the potential production of stranded natural gas reserves through the implementation of Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) in a world of growing energy demand followed by an analysis ...
  • Hammond, Christopher D. (Christopher Daniel) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Natural gas produced from shale formations has increased dramatically in the past decade and has altered the oil and gas industry greatly. The use of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing has enabled the production ...
  • Dominguez, Eric Anthony, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis discusses various approaches to project management. In particular, it focuses on the effects of functional and project coordination when inter-project interactions exist. Various organizational structures and ...
  • Kamimoto, Lynn K. (Lynn Kam Oi) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The economics of implementing bagasse-based charcoal manufacturing in Haiti was investigated. From these main inputs, three different manufacturing economic scenarios were modeled using a simple, dynamic excel spreadsheet. ...
  • Goel, Anjali, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Composite materials are used for products needing high strength-to-weight ratios and good corrosion resistance. For these materials, various composite manufacturing processes have been developed such as Automated Tow ...
  • Conrad, Jeremy (Jeremy A.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Autonomous robots are becoming a part of everyday life. One difficulty in the creation of autonomous robots is having the robots avoid objects. In particular once one has chosen an algorithm difficulty arises in perfecting ...
  • Chang, Jui-Chen, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Double-skin airflow facades have been in use for several years in European countries. They have yet to be used in the United States. One factor is that there is a lack of a heat transfer model which can accurately predict ...
  • Chen, Ava E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Motors used to actuate powered prostheses generally under-utilize their torque capacity due to thermal limitations of the windings. This thesis investigates the effectiveness of increasing the rate of heat transfer away ...
