Thank you for pointing out this unclear sentence. Upon reading it again it does not communicate my point very effectively. By preliminary I mean the initial heat transfer model. The initial heat transfer model (characterized by the initial conditions and boundary conditions I set in the COSMOSWorks platform) did not accurately represent the physical system. This gave some confusing results which suggested the temperature distribution on the bottom plate was almost perfectly even (resulting in almost no temperature gradient) for both an aluminum, and steel plate. Physically, we would expect different results as the conductivity of aluminum is better than steel. By refining the model (with more accurate initial and boundary conditions, I then found more physical results which showed the aluminum plates performed better than the steel plates). I hope this answers your question, please feel free to contact me if you require further clarification. [[User:Nate Preston|Nate Preston]] 15:57, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
-Figures should be labelled and referred to by Fig.# in text
-How do the Al plates compare in terms of bending and deformation to the base 1/4" steel plate
