Portal for Engineering Discussions

This is a place for pickup discussions regarding engineering. Question and answer, imagineering, requirements analysis, specific technical problems,etc. Any discussion related to engineering is appropriate and since this page is FDL'ed may easily be ported into appropriate lessons or other places in the Wikiversity Engineering databases.

Perhaps we can generate some interest in establishing a distributed supercomputer system for Wikiversity's future projects. When not busy with our priority stuff it could help with others routine work as proposed here: http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Screensaver_Project

Design Study in Progress, All Participants are Welcome[edit]

An industrial supplierLunar_Boom_Town/LOX_Domestic_and_Exports#Plant_Development.2C_Installation.2C_and_Operation at Lunar Boom Town needs some top level design studies undertaken to allow effective business planning to proceed. Ideally several options will be articulated according to various engineering criteria established. Output quantity planning is not yet complete and may require engineers and planners to articulate several different approaches according to anticipated economies of scale, market demand, operating efficiencies, etc. Mirwin 19:44, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
