Hi S.Keating,

Welcome to the Appropedia wiki. Please make yourself at home! If you need a general wiki-tutorial, see the main help page (or the more in-depth one on WikiEducator).

Check your preferences and be sure you verify your email address and turn on email notification if you'd like it -- you can find out when your talk page, or any page on your watchlist, is modified. You may want to upload a photo or information about yourself to your userpage (which is at http://appropedia.org/User:S.Keating).

If you have a particular interest or project in mind, go ahead and start it! If you have questions or suggestions, the best place to leave them is at the Village pump - you should get a fast response. Or, feel free to leave me a note on my talk page if you have further questions, need help finding your way around, have a cool idea for a project, or just want to chat.

Glad to have you here!




Really nice work -- very good project. Minor suggestions

  • Formatting: tie into appropedia with hyperlinks,
  • Content: Quantify the energy saved from implementing one of the examples - perhaps engines for what has been done - or better yet one of your ideas like bearings

Really interesting and thorough project. I found that there was a great deal of detail in the processes mentioned but I would like to see more quantitative results. However, it seems that since it isn't an exact science, these might be hard to come by. I liked the link from your project to Peter's but I don't know if it is in the best spot. The link is for surface microstructure, where Peter's article is on the laser hardening of steel gears. I can see from reading his project the link you were trying to make but maybe a sentence into other uses of laser precision in controlling microstructure would be better than a direct link. Figure 1 I felt should be under Basic Underlying Principles since this is where it is referenced. Some of the Wiki links did not have pages in wikipedia, I don't know if this is of concern to you but figured I should mention it. The one link I could take a look at was for the use of it on piston rings to improve mileage, I believe. This could be something to mention as far as quantitative data to back up the use of laser surface texturing. I have been pretty picky as far as comments and that's because there isn't too much I can say as far as quality of the work. It's a very in depth and well organized project. Good work and hopefully something from here is of help to you.



Hi Steven,

You may be interested in using mark up for the math. You can use code to turn y = B1 + B2*X + B3*X^2 into
