  • Improving seawater desalination and seawater desalination brine management 

    Nayar, Kishor Govind. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Water scarcity is an increasing problem globally. Seawater desalination is increasingly being relied upon as a means of mitigating the problem of water scarcity. However, seawater desalination has costs associated with it: ...
  • Dynamics and rheology of soft phase-change materials 

    Geri, Michela. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Many industrial processes involve multicomponent or composite materials in which one component can undergo a phase transition leading to the appearance of a solid phase dispersed in a liquid-like continuous phase. Examples ...
  • Elastically-isotropic mechanical metamaterials : theory and experiments 

    Tancogne-Dejean, Thomas(Thomas Vincent) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Lightweight engineering requires the development of low-density materials featuring high mechanical properties with an emphasis on high-specific stiffness and strength. Besides improvement in the composition of bulk ...
