  • McKenna, Jay (Jay P.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Overhead tasks such as those frequently found in aircraft manufacturing pose health risks to the workers due to the strain imposed on the shoulders. To reduce the risk of injury, a set of supernumerary robotic limbs (SRL) ...
  • Griswold, Aaron A. (Aaron Alexander), 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    A miniaturized bioreactor with a volume on the order of 100 [micro]l has been built with the aim of increasing the efficiency of the screening process for various microbial cultures. Unlike larger reactors currently in ...
  • Kubaczyk, Daniel Mark (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    An investigation was conducted to determine the methods and processes required for the manufacture of photographic objective lenses. Production of photographic lenses requires incredible precision in the melting, mixing, ...
  • Ray, Katherine Leung (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In order to determine what type of photovoltaic solar cell could best be used in a thermoelectric photovoltaic hybrid power generator, we tested the change in efficiency due to higher temperatures of three types of solar ...
  • Humbert, Matthew S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Characterizing transient flow is not a trivial venture. It provides an excellent challenge for a senior mechanical engineering lab class. This project aimed at developing a new physical system for such a class based on the ...
  • Young, Brady W. (Brady William) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    A motor and flywheel system was designed to simulate the dynamics of the electric drive train and inertial mass of a hybrid electric vehicle. The model will serve as a test bed for students in 2.672 to study the energy ...
  • Cantum, Cecilia G (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The DARPA Robotic Challenge (DRC) required the development of user interface, perception, and planning and control modules for a robotic humanoid. This paper focuses on the planning and control component for the manipulation ...
  • Hatton, Ross L. (Ross Lawrence) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this thesis, the limits of conventional linear actuators for long stroke applications are discussed, and tape-spring based actuators such as the STEM are introduced as an alternative solution. While the literature ...
  • Cho, Peter Sungil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Kojimoto, Nigel (Nigel C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Pneumatic power is traditionally provided by compressed air contained in a pressurized vessel. This method of energy storage is analogous to an electrical capacitor. This study sought to create an alternative pneumatic ...
  • Chiloyan, Vazrik (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Polymer fiber drawing creates fibers with enhanced thermal conductivity and strength compared to bulk polymer because drawing aligns the molecular chains. I optimize the polymer fiber drawing method in order to achieve ...
  • Salazar, Madeline (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The ThermoCloud was designed as a portable, scalable, transparent electrical blanket to warm and insulate infants, while permitting hassle-free medical transportation and maximum visualization of a patient's thorax and ...
  • Larson, Richard Winston (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Experiments for controls classes like MIT's 2.004 require large lab setups and expensive equipment such as oscilloscopes and function generators. We developed a series of controls experiments based on National Instruments' ...
  • Tatem, Rachel E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Most student projects never make the transition from a class prototype to a commercial product. This document is meant to be used as a guide by any student trying to turn an alpha prototype into a product on the market. ...
  • Post, Ethan A. (Ethan Adam) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    A device that can measure the dynamic compliance of a material has applications for research, health sciences and for use as a pedagogical tool. A device was created which stochastically perturbs a material while measuring ...
  • Yang, Shannon X. (Shannon Xuan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Leaking in water pipe is a critical issue in Middle Eastern countries such as Kuwait where water is scarce. In-pipe robots can be dispatched to discover the network and inspect the inner surface of the pipe. This thesis ...
  • Weaver, Van J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1924)
  • Kniazzeh, Alfredo Giovanni Francesco (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1959)
  • Amanti, Steven Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The MIT community and the City of Cambridge embarked on initiatives to reduce energy consumption and Greenhouse Gas emissions in accordance with the Kyoto Protocol which calls for a 20 % reduction in 1990 levels of GHG ...
  • Sung, Peter On (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This thesis provides an overview of geothermal power generation and the potential for geothermal energy utilization in China. Geothermal energy is thermal energy stored in the earth's crust and currently the only ubiquitously ...
