10:30 PM | Platinum Investment Casting, Part II: Alloy Optimisation by Thermodynamic Simulation and Experimental Verification
Two widely used jewellery investment casting alloys (platinum with 5 wt% ruthenium (Pt-5Ru) and platinum with 5 wt% cobalt (Pt-5Co)) suffer from poor castability and other drawbacks. In this work thermodynamic calculations of alloy properties were employed to optimise the alloy compositions. Segregation behaviour appeared to be important for the melting range. Scheil simulations were used to simulate segregation under typical casting conditions. Based on these simulation results, small […]

“During outdoor activities one is often annoyed or distracted by an insect. For example during static outdoor activities such as sun-tanning or reading, a single fly will often persist in annoyance despite repeated attempts to ‘discourage’ the insect. Such an insect persistently fly’s [sic] and lands on one’s arm or leg for example. Conventional fly-swatters […]

5:01 AM | Causality, part II (was it caused by Part I?)
This post serves as a follow-up to a Synthetic Daisies post written in 2012 on new methods to detect causality in data.Here are a few interesting readings at the intersection of data analysis and the philosophy of science. The first [1] is a new arXiv paper [2] that evaluates two approaches to evaluating causality using two machine learning techniques. A plethora of discriminative machine learning techniques have emerged in recent years to address relatively simple relationships. In terms of […]
