  • Fonder, Gregory Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The objective of this thesis was to study and improve one's own physical intelligence. Through studying bodily movements of people trying to accomplish new tasks, I realized one way to enhance physical intelligence was ...
  • Marcos, Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Bacteria are ubiquitous and play a critical role in many contexts. Their environment is nearly always dynamic due to the prevalence of fluid flow: creeping flow in soil, highly sheared flow in bodily conduits, and turbulent ...
  • Hong, Vu Anh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Many applications, such as laser diode technology, utilize components (eg. resistors) which have performance characteristics heavily dependent on temperature, and therefore, maintaining constant temperature is essential ...
  • Bageant, Maia R. (Maia Reynolds) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In this thesis, I designed and constructed hardware for a two-wheeled balancing Segway robot. Because the robot could not be balanced based on a control system derived from the original analytical model, additional system ...
  • Hinton, Yolanda Leigh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1980)
  • Huang, Min, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, the ballistic resistance of multi-layered steel shields against projectile impact at the sub-ordnance velocity is evaluated using finite element simulations. Eight types of projectiles of different weight ...
  • Rosales, Evencio A. (Evencio Alex), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    An apparatus of the classical ball-on-beam problem was designed and constructed to be used as a pedagogical instrument in feedback courses. The aesthetic and mechanical design incorporated economical materials to make kits ...
  • Aggarwal, Sanjay Kumar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Roth, Meagan (Meagan Ashley) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) have a wide variety of underwater applications. Controlling these robots wirelessly in an aquatic environment is challenging because of signal attenuation. This challenge is made even more ...
  • Reitz, Douglas William (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1983)
  • Field, Ella Suzanne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    One of the most important technical goals in spacecraft design is maintaining the vehicle's integrity under the extreme conditions encountered during reentry to the Earth's atmosphere. When a hypersonic vehicle travels ...
  • Molina, Keith M. (Keith Martin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Research in advanced fenestration systems has led to the development of the Heliodome project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Daylighting Laboratory. The MIT Heliodome project is dedicated to goniophotometry ...
  • Lu, Peter Guang Yi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    A new methodology for Bayesian inference of stochastic dynamical models is developed. The methodology leverages the dynamically orthogonal (DO) evolution equations for reduced-dimension uncertainty evolution and the Gaussian ...
  • Middlebrook, Danica Lee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Unmanned underwater vehicles have various missions within civilian, military and academic sectors. They have the ability to explore areas unavailable to manned assets and to perform duties that are risky to humans. In ...
  • Nguyen, Debbie Diem (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    and sometimes even surpass, the capabilities and aesthetics of the natural human body. A prosthesis is carefully designed to provide optimal functionality to assist the amputee in returning back to her normal daily activities ...
  • Smutzer, Chad A. (Chad Austin), 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • 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 ...
