    Flexures play an important role in precision machine design for space by allowing accurate and repeatable motion through bending of compliant elements. The design of flexures is a non-trivial process due to the interconnection ...
  • Cho, Jae Hyung, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Colloidal gels are viscoelastic materials characterized by the collective behavior of particles that form a space-spanning network. Although the network structure embodies the aggregation process of the particles, the ...
  • Briggs, Randall (Randall Miller) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    This thesis presents the design of a piezoelectric ceramic stack actuator for use with needle-free jet injection (NFJI) devices. While NFJI devices have been in use for over 60 years only recently have they been electronically ...
  • Carrus, Justin William (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    For many people in developing contexts, the financial expense of construction can be overwhelming. There is a need for more appropriate technologies for low-cost construction. This thesis presents a concise review of ...
  • Beckwith, Ashley L. (Ashley Lynn) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    This thesis presents the development of an entirely 3D-printed, monolithic microfluidic platform for evaluating the efficacy of immunotherapy treatments. The platform provides a dynamic microenvironment for perfusing and ...
