  • Poteet, Amanda N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    A study into the field of humanitarian landmine removal was conducted; with significant attention devoted to an in depth review of existing removal technologies, as well as alternative detection methods. A design proposal ...
  • DiBacco, John, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Mendiola, David Mario (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Music is constantly evolving, both in the culture and musical theory that dictates its structure, and the technology used to create the actual sound. This thesis explores a direction for development of one of the most ...
  • Hui, Corinna (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Using laser range finders as a method of navigation is popular with mobile land robots; however, there has been little research using it with water vehicles. Therefore, this thesis explores the usage and data flow of a ...
  • Seluga, Kristopher J. (Kristopher Joseph), 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Torres, James, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The distribution of clean, drinkable water is a problem that has been addressed in all civilizations. The most common form of transportation today, is the use of pressurized pipelines to carry the water long distances, but ...
  • Saldivar, Orlando (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Levy flights have been recently found to approximate the trajectories of animal foragers in their search for resources and food. Levy flights have proved to be effective in searching tasks because of their characteristic ...
  • Huang, Jessica J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The main purpose of this paper is to assess the energy and environmental benefits of cultivating hybrid poplars as a biomass crop for cellulosic ethanol. A "Life Cycle Assessment" (LCA) methodology is used to systematically ...
  • Dave, Shreya H (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Access to electricity in developing countries is minimal and if available, often unreliable. As a result, fuel-based kerosene lighting is the most common solution to lighting necessities. However, kerosene combustion affects ...
  • Ramsey, William Durand (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Hong, Wenxian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The structure of light around a scene may be contained in a 4-dimensional array known as a light field. This thesis describes methods for acquiring and manipulating light fields for applications in 3-dimensional imaging. ...
  • Scelfo, Tony (Tony W.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This document describes the design and fabrication of a complete driveline package for the MIT Formula SAE race car. The driveline is centered around a custom aluminum housing for a Torsen® T 1I gearing. This gearing ...
  • Benson, Christopher Lee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Small scale unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have proven themselves to be useful, but often too noisy for certain operations due to their rotary motors. This project examined the feasibility of using an almost silent linear ...
  • Batra, Neha, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Data was gathered and analyzed through a survey of the Mechanical Engineering Course 2 and Course 2-A Alumni to analyze the impact of their choice of major on their current career path and to investigate the career paths ...
  • Chen, Yi, S. B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Carbon fiber composites are materials that present many benefits to engineering applications, ranging from aerospace to medicine. This thesis provides background on carbon fiber properties and manufacturing techniques, and ...
  • Ho, Leeway, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Existing three-dimensional surface imaging systems are expensive, difficult to use, time consuming, and do not always provide the best accuracy or resolution. By using an offset aperture on a rotating disc, the 3D Monocular ...
  • Gonzalez, Daniel Jesus (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this work, an underactuated robot gripper was designed to meet specifications for strength, cost, and ease of manufacturing with Open-Source distribution in mind. The specifications emerged from a need for inexpensive ...
  • Stoddard, Steven J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Rising energy prices and increasing price volatility present a problem for many fraternities, sororities, and independent living groups (FSILGs) at MIT. The buildings they occupy are typically quite old, with little ...
  • Páez, Daýan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The active regions of a solar cell must be inoculated with wax, while leaving the metal fingers and bus bars bare, in preparation for the electroplating step of a new solar panel manufacturing process. Different methods ...
  • Blackburn, Bonnie Lucille (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This project used an exoskeletal robot to increase and decrease the stiffness of the ankle joint during treadmill walking to measure the effect of ankle impedance on lower limb joint kinematics. By quantifying the effect ...
