Intelligent robot grinding : planning, optimization, and control
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1988)
The biomechanics of knees at high flexion angles before and after Total Knee Arthroplasty
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) was initially developed to alleviate pain in the case of severe arthritis of the knee. Restoration of knee motion has been an on going issue for the last decade. Contemporary TKAs appear to ...
Molecular mechanics of cartilage : quantification of GAG electrostatic interactions via high-resolution force spectroscopy
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
Intermolecular repulsion forces between negatively charged glycosaminoglycan (CS-GAG) macromolecules are a major determinant of cartilage biomechanical properties. It is thought that the electrostatic component of the total ...
The influence of the dispersed phase on the convective heat transfer in dispersed flow film boiling
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1990)
The mechanical behavior of maraging steel under extreme electromechanical and thermal conditions
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1989)
Combining adaptive and designed statistical experimentation : process improvement, data classification, experimental optimization and model building
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
Research interest in the use of adaptive experimentation has returned recently. This historic technique adapts and learns from each experimental run but requires quick runs and large effects. The basis of this renewed ...
A study of loading parameters that affect DNA electrophoresis in microdevices
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
Electrophoresis of DNA has become particularly attractive in today's age of bio-technology. The goal of the present research is to optimize the the gel-loading and sample-loading protocols used prior to electrophoresis ...
Chondrocyte metabolism and matrix nano-electromechanics : the response to cartilage tissue shear deformation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
Cartilage functions as a load bearing and friction reducing material in synovial joints and it is constantly exposed to in vivo loading which is coupled to electromechanical and physicochemical forces. The swelling pressure ...
