  • Tailoring wetting behavior at extremes 

    Wilke, Kyle(Kyle L.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    In the classical understanding of liquid interactions with surfaces, liquid/surface chemistry dictates wetting behavior, requiring use of specific materials to achieve desired behavior. This restriction creates a number ...
  • Design of versatile and low-cost shaft sensor for health monitoring 

    Gest, Erik M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Virtually every mechanized form of transportation, power generation system, industrial equipment, and robotic system has rotating shafts. As the shaft is often the main means of mechanical power transmission, measuring the ...
  • Design of an aluminum-powered reverse osmosis desalination system for disaster relief 

    Godart, Peter(Peter T.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Fuel generated from highly energy-dense aluminum debris (23.3 kWh/L) is explored here as a means for producing electricity and clean water for disaster relief and preparedness. Energy is extracted from aluminum by first ...
