Fracture surface in a liquid crystalline polymer
Above their melting point, liquid crystalline polymers exhibit a mesophase within which, although able to flow and are not arranged in a crystal, they exhibit long range orientational order. This molecular alignment can be exploited to make high strength and stiffness fibres such as Kevlar, or even mouldable thermotropics such as Vectra. Molecular alignment can also be controlled by an external applied field; a property exploited in liquid crystal displays. This specimen has not had a magneti

Cyclic compaction of soft-hard powder mixtures
Cyclic compaction of powder mixtures has been shown to be more effective compared to â classicâ static compaction. The goal of this work was to understand cyclic compaction and identify the origin of the improved compressibility of brittle powders and their composites. In particular, we tried to detect systematic effects of particle size, and wall friction on green density and strength of composite powder mixtures. In this thesis we will discuss: a) a review of the existing literature, b) a

11.902 Advanced Urban Public Finance: Collective Action and Provisions of Local Public Goods (MIT)
In analyzing fiscal issues, conventional public finance approaches focus mainly on taxation and public spending. Policymakers and practitioners rarely explore solutions by examining the fundamental problem: the failure of interested parties to act collectively to internalize the positive externalities generated by public goods. Public finance is merely one of many possible institutional arrangements for assigning the rights and responsibilities to public goods consumption. This system is current
