  • Das, Chandan (Chandan K.); Holland, Justin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    A portable hand powered water sterilization device was created to address a portion of the growing epidemic of global water contamination. As being more supply chain independent and having an active dose sensing component ...
  • Smith, Benjamin D. (Benjamin David), 1983- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Physical Intelligence refers to the ability of the human organism to smartly and precisely coordinate its internal components and interactions in its environment to solve physically complex tasks. While Physical Intelligence ...
  • Strauss, Marc D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis report details the design and manufacture of HandWave, a wearable wireless Bluetooth skin conductance sensor, and dedicated housing. The HandWave collects Electrodermal Activity (EDA) data by measuring skin ...
  • Lee, Peter T. (Peter Taeyun) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Stronger, Brad A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis presents three mechanical structures designed for efficient energy systems. In [3], Cooley presents a modification of a fluorescent lamp which allows it to detect nearby occupants and dim itself automatically. ...
  • Zhao, Nilu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In the recent years, Singapore has been affected by haze caused by slash-and-bum fires in Indonesia. Currently, haze concentration is measured by filtering air samples at various stations in Singapore. In this thesis, ...
  • Rice, Marie C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Using a macroscopic analog for a two dimensional hexagonal crystal, we perform an experimental investigation of the self-healing properties of circular grain defects with an emphasis on defect orientation. A circular grain ...
  • Latcham, Jacob G. (Jacob Greco) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    An air-to-oil heat exchanger was modeled and optimized for use in a system utilizing a thermoelectric generator to convert low grade waste heat in flue gas streams to electricity. The NTU-effectiveness method, exergy, and ...
  • Hery, Travis M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Condensation, a two-phase heat transfer processes, is commonly utilized in industrial systems. Condensation heat transfer can be optimized by using surfaces in which dropwise condensation (DWC) occurs, and even further ...
  • Gabour, Laurette A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1991)
  • Ruleman, Karlen E. (Karlen Elizabeth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Dropwise condensation has the potential to greatly increase heat transfer rates. Heat transfer coefficients by dropwise condensation and film condensation on microstructured silicon chips were compared. Heat transfer ...
  • Lopez, Ken, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Many existing industrial systems, including thermal desalination plants and air conditioning systems, involve the process of condensation and are heavily dependent on this process for achieving adequate levels of energy ...
  • Soto-Fernández, Orlando; Pino, Andres (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    A design project was carried out which involved the design, manufacturing, and assembly of a hybrid bicycle. The bicycle was required to operate between two modes, one that permitted fast transport of the operator from one ...
  • Pino, Andres (Andres J.); Soto-Fernández, Orlando (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This research involved the design and manufacture of a prototype for a hybrid bicycle system. The design called for a vehicle capable of being used in a mode where normal bicycle operation is possible while being reconfigurable ...
  • Fittery, Aaron (Aaron M.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The direct video inspection of complex underwater systems, like those inside nuclear reactors, is a difficult task to accomplish. Alternatives to underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) inspection are very laborious, ...
  • Heyward, Moses A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this creative design process a number of designs were constructed, implemented and tested in order to assess the feasibility of using high speed to create a curtain to repel the rain from the automobile windshield instead ...
  • Gallup, Benjamin H. (Benjamin Hodsdon), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis, I investigate the utility of high speed imaging for gaining scientific insight into the nature of short-duration transient fluid phenomena, specifically applied to the Kaye effect. The Kaye effect, noted ...
  • Mazen, Nadeem Abdelmagid (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    TechThesys is a web-deployable data-collection application intended for outpatient clinics. It was programmed in Flash and integrates visual crispness, video, voice-prompts, and clear user-flow towards high-usability across ...
  • Cerda, Erika R. (Erika Rocio) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The function of the human hip joint during the stance phase of walking can be characterized with a configuration of simple mechanical elements. This combination of elements is capable of providing general hip behavior in ...
  • Firko, Megan (Megan Rose) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Microfluidic devices have been a rapidly increasing area of study since the mid 1990s. Such devices are useful for a wide variety of biological applications and offer the possibility for large scale integration of fluidic ...
