  • Fly, Charles Bruce (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978)
  • Gomez, Teresa M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis explores the use of binary actuators to adjust the shape of an array of mirrors. To explore this concept, an experimental system was refurbished and recalibrated. This experimental system was used to explore ...
  • McDougal, Wesley D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The biomechanics of lower limb locomotion is a yet unknown mixture of neurological control and physical parameters. The current study explored attaching a rehabilitative anklebot to subjects walking on a treadmill and ...
  • Bonebreak, Christina M. (Christina Michelle) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    An experiment was performed to determine the effect of crosslinking on the stiffness of collagen scaffolds. Engineered non-crosslinked and dehydrothermally crosslinked chondroitin-6-sulfate collagen scaffolds were hydrated ...
  • Louison, Charles Davidson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis surrounds an analysis to understand what it would take for a company to successfully launch a prescription fluid dispensing device. This device would in theory be able to dispense medication at any time daily ...
  • Tow, Emily W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Flow boiling is important in energy conversion and thermal management due to its potential for very high heat fluxes. By improving understanding of the conditions leading to bubble departure, surfaces can be designed that ...
  • Oehlerking, Austin L (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    A competitive, closed-loop information feedback system of wireless electricity meters was designed, tested, and implemented in seven MIT dormitory rooms. The meters utilized Allegro Hall Effect current sensors as well as ...
  • Brown, Ashlie (Ashlie M.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Design guidelines for tools to enhance protein education are developed and applied to a prototype tool. A literature search and personal experience suggest kinetic, tangible models fill the current gaps in protein education. ...
  • Morton, Stephen A; Tan, Geng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    A market study was performed to determine the feasibility of the iXa Walker. The walker industry is about to enter a large growth due to the entry of millions of baby boomers into the durable medical equipment market. Using ...
  • Kalk, David O. (David Oliver) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    There exists much room for growth in recycling participation with almost 1 in every 4 Americans still not recycling at all. In many communities this fraction is significantly higher, with low awareness of the benefits of ...
  • Castro Galnares, Sebastián (Castro Galnares Wright Paz) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    A laboratory test rig was designed and built to easily test SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology. Equipped with three 6 kW heaters, connections for liquid N2 and an assortment of test gases, and a connection with ...
  • Charenkavanich, Panasaya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Cervical insufficiency is a condition in pregnancy in which the cervix asymptomatically dilates in the absence of uterine contractions, resulting in a spontaneous preterm delivery. The condition is often misdiagnosed and ...
  • Esmail, Adnan M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Despite hemp's multifarious uses in over 30 countries ranging from the manufacture of paper to specialty textiles, construction, animal feed, and fuel, its acceptance in the US has been shunned because of its association ...
  • Haas, Anna C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Insufficient support and isolation of rotating and non-rotating shipboard equipment and instruments may cause damage to the components or the ship itself. Reduction of noise emissions to the ship's hull and protection of ...
  • Quiñones, Lisandro E. (Quiñones Ortiz) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The urgent stipulation is to manufacture CNTs of desired properties and dimensions. The heart of this yearning lies in understanding the growth and assembly methods of CNTs, which are not yet clear. In this study, hence, ...
  • Winther, Garrett L. (Garrett Lee) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis explores a new strategy in developing products quickly, cheaply and efficiently, with the hopes to redefine the paradigms behind the product design process. This was carried out through the development of the ...
  • Liu, Linda Yu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    As the world continues to move into a global economy, companies have more choices in terms of who their suppliers are and who their customers are. Improved technological and communication capabilities have allowed firms ...
  • Fang, Liane Jessica; Hane-Weijman, Caroline M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The motivation behind this report was to develop a stronger understanding of pine needle combustion behavior in a semi-gasifier, in order to ultimately design an effective pine needle cook stove for people in the developing ...
  • Hilton, Emily M. (Emily Margaret) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    For centuries, the human race has been perplexed by the various complex physical manifestations in nature. Much of what we have seen in nature we have tried to recreate, from the migration tendencies and routes of sea ...
  • Hu, Jenny (Jenny Ezu) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Two elastomeric microfluidic devices were designed for the purpose of conducting rapid, flow-based, multiplexed DNA hybridization. Experimental results showed that flowing hybridization assays could detect similar ...
