  • Gill, Harmeet (Harmeet Kaur) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The rotator cuff is composed of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subcapularis, and teres minor tendons. Rotator cuff injuries are common athletic and occupational injuries that surgery cannot fully repair. Therefore tendon ...
  • Sidelko, Stephanie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The study of aerodynamics is very important in the world of cycling. Wind tunnel research is conducted on most of the equipment that is used by a rider and is a critical factor in the advancement of the sport. However, to ...
  • McDonald, Heather E. (Heather Elizabeth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    A suspension system was designed to make The Rickshaw Bank's bicycle-powered rickshaws more comfortable for the drivers. A four bar linkage with a rising rate spring was chosen as the design. An unconventional material-tire ...
  • Acosta, Arron (Arron Scott) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The addition of a systems engineering concentration through the MIT Mechanical Engineering Alternative (course 2A) curriculum will be shown to have the potential to increase the number of engineering degrees in comparison ...
  • Wu, Jodie (Jodie Z.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    There are 550 million smallholder farmers around the world who earn less than $1/day who could benefit from pedal-powered attachments. This project discusses factors to consider in designing for developing countries and ...
  • 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, ...
