  • 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, ...
  • Winther, Garrett L. (Garrett Lee) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis explores a new strategy in developing products quickly, cheaply and efficiently, with the hopes to redefine the paradigms behind the product design process. This was carried out through the development of the ...
  • Coad, Margaret Mary (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The InMotion² robot is a clinical version of the MIT-Manus robot, which was developed in the 1990s to help with upper limb rehabilitation of stroke survivors. In 2015, experiments were planned to use the InMotion² robot ...
  • Liu, Linda Yu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    As the world continues to move into a global economy, companies have more choices in terms of who their suppliers are and who their customers are. Improved technological and communication capabilities have allowed firms ...
  • Castellanos, Samantha Nicole (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Fabrication of a one-lunger Atlantic marine engine for the purposes of developing a curriculum for an advanced fabricating and machining class for the Papplardo Apprentices at MIT. One-lunger marine engines greatly influenced ...
  • Polanco, Pedro (Pedro D.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In membrane technology at large, fouling limits membrane performance and membrane lifespan. In the case of reverse osmosis membrane distillation (MD) involving fluid mixtures of inorganic elements, inorganic foulants build ...
  • Fang, Liane Jessica; Hane-Weijman, Caroline M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The motivation behind this report was to develop a stronger understanding of pine needle combustion behavior in a semi-gasifier, in order to ultimately design an effective pine needle cook stove for people in the developing ...
  • Hilton, Emily M. (Emily Margaret) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    For centuries, the human race has been perplexed by the various complex physical manifestations in nature. Much of what we have seen in nature we have tried to recreate, from the migration tendencies and routes of sea ...
  • Hu, Jenny (Jenny Ezu) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Two elastomeric microfluidic devices were designed for the purpose of conducting rapid, flow-based, multiplexed DNA hybridization. Experimental results showed that flowing hybridization assays could detect similar ...
  • Potash, Benjamin R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Safe drinking water remains inaccessible for roughly 1.1 billion people in the world.³⁴ As a result, 400 children under the age of 5 die every hour from biological contamination of drinking water.³⁴ Studies have been done ...
  • Bosworth, William R., Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    A new height adjustable kinematic coupling has been designed for a next generation high precision ceramics grinding machine designed to have total loop stiffness of 60 N/[mu]m. A test apparatus and prototype of the new ...
  • Peña, Kristen Helen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Oxygenated fluid mixture can be used to treat critically ill patients suffering from asphyxia, lung injury, and cardiac arrest. This oxygenated fluid delivered intravenously re-oxygenates the bloodstream, allowing for more ...
  • Mitchel, Jennifer (Jennifer A.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The liver is the most important site of drug and nutrient metabolism in the body, and we desire an accurate in vitro model that allows us to perform long term drug and metabolism studies. To this end of developing an ...
  • Franklin, Jeremy Contini (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The knowledge and technical expertise required for the development of telerobotic systems capable of needle distal tip manipulation is the focus of this thesis. An extensive prior literature review was conducted to examine ...
  • Ding, Hao, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The characterization of the volume targeting capabilities of a telerobotic device capable of needle distal tip manipulation with a pre-curved needle is the focus of this thesis. The concept of deploying a pre-curved stylet ...
