I am looking to analyse the usability, maintainability and reusability of an MVC 3 web application using design patterns. This could be via the Extension Manager in VS2010 Express or through another source.
In particular, I am interested in object oriented metrics, which I will be analysing as part of my thesis.
Could anyone give me a list of free profilers?

There is FxCop which will do some code analysis for you
There are also addins like Telerik's JustCode, DevExpress CodeRush, and JetBrains R# which will check your code for you
Code it right is another addin

Thanks for your answer.
I will be creating two applications, one with OOP design patterns the other without. Then I want to measure how many objects are outputted on different pages and compare them to a software metrics.
Telerik's JustCode seems to be more geared up for commercial developers and not for the academic side.
Are you able to run reports in Justcode to analyse the objects for example?

If you are looking to measure performance you should check out something like JustTrace, dotpeek, or Ants Performance profilier. There are some built in performance analysizers in the higher end version of visual studio.
To be honest the biggest advantage to using OOP design patterns is code maintablilty.
