  • Lee, Yin Jin; Blanco, Edgar E.; D'Ambrosio, Lisa A.; Zegras, P. Christopher (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2015-05-22)
    Freight transportation serves the vital role of fulfilling the goods demand of residents in cities, yet little is known about the mechanisms that generate freight movements and their impact on traffic. Even though technology ...
  • Blanco, Edgar E.; Ponce Cueto, Eva Maria (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2015-03)
    In a global economy, international trade plays an important role of the economic development. This is especially relevant in emerging markets, where trade could contribute significantly to the economic growth of the country. ...
  • Pena-Alcaraz, Maite; Sussman, Joseph M.; Webster, Mort (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2015-03)
    Recently, governments have started promoting the use of shared railway systems as a way to take advantage of the existing capital-intensive railway infrastructure. Until 1988, all major railways both managed the infrastructure ...
  • Shaffer, Ryan M.; Olechowski, Alison Louise; Seering, Warren; Ben-Daya, Mohammad (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2015-01-04)
    Risks in product development lead to schedule and cost overruns and poor product quality. While many risk management frameworks have been published and research on specific practices has been conducted, little is understood ...
  • Blanco, Edgar E.; Sheffi, Yossi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2015-01)
    Growth is imperative for corporate success and yet the environmental impact of this growth is not sustainable. In this paper we offer a framework for thinking about the stages of tackling the environmental sustainability ...
  • Leung, Tommy (Tommy Chun Ting) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Scarce pipeline capacity in regions that rely on natural gas technologies for electricity generation has created volatile prices and reliability concerns. Gas-fired generation firms uniquely operate as large consumers in ...
  • Angarita Fonseca, Maria Paula (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    To ensure the sustainability of a world whose growing population demands more materials, products, and energy, we must closely examine the sustainability of the industries that supply them. Metal-making industries encounter ...
  • Acocella, Angela J. (Angela Josephine) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    As global energy demands grow and environmental concerns over resource extraction methods intensify, high impact solutions are becoming increasingly essential. Venting and flaring of associated natural gas represents ...
  • Chang, Michael Tse-Gene (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Light-duty vehicle transportation accounted for 17.2% of US greenhouse gas emissions in 2012 [95]. An important strategy for reducing CO₂ emissions emitted by light-duty vehicles is to reduce per-mile CO₂ emissions. While ...
  • Bharatkumar, Ashwini (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Growing integration of distributed energy resources (DER) presents the electric power sector with the potential for signicant changes to technical operations, business models, and industry structure. New physical components, ...
  • Fornés Martinez, Hèctor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Implementations of surface traffic management strategies at congested airports have the potential to yield significant benefits, but must account for the constraints and objectives of multiple stakeholders. This thesis ...
  • Zhang, Biao, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Pediatric Pneumonia (PNA) is the single leading cause of death in children under five, accounting for 19% of all childhood deaths worldwide. Due to severe resource constraints on healthcare, the global burden of the disease ...
  • Mueller, Joshua M. (Joshua Michael), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Intermittent renewable energy sources do not always provide power at times of greatest electricity demand or highest prices. To do so reliably, energy storage is likely required. However, no single energy storage technology ...
  • Rosen, Jacob (Jacob Benjamin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    his thesis presents a three part methodology for analyzing the ow of taxable income in large partnership structures. The method forms the basis for prototypical software which would clarify many complicated basis adjustment ...
  • Dwyer, Morgan Maeve (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The term jointness refers to activities or operations that are executed collaboratively by more than one government agency or military department. While joint operations have become increasingly common and successful, the ...
  • Macfarlane, Nicholas Blair Wootton (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    On-animal tags provide an incredible window into the world of cetaceans, allowing researchers to track movements across ocean basins and investigate fine-scale behavior deep below the surface. The earliest cetacean tags ...
  • Sowell, Jesse H., II (Jesse Horton) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This inquiry started with the simple question, "Who manages the Internet infrastructure and how?" Since, this question evolved into an evaluation of the routing system and the institutions that manage it. This institutional ...
  • Allen, Stacey A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Technology use in education is rapidly expanding with varying results. The success of education technologies in schools depends on both the quality of the material presented through technology in terms of content and ...
  • Ellman, Douglas (Douglas Austin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Despite efforts from governments and other organizations, hundreds of millions of people-primarily in Africa and South Asia-still have no electricity service. Electrification efforts have historically been focused on ...
  • Bedri, Hisham (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Great levels of computational power and new kinds of sensors are being embedded into today's mobile devices. Through computation and new algorithms, the power of these sensors is being harnessed to form full images of ...
