Stone Wheels

Thomas E. Bernard

Welcome to Stone Wheels

You have found the download site for applications, presentations, and other stone wheels developed by me. Occasionally, it may be populated with material borrowed from others. I hope you find them useful.

I would like to acknowledge faculty, staff and students of the Sunshine Education and Research Center and the University of South Florida as well as NIOSH and other supporters of our research, training and practice efforts.

This page contains links to material that are referenced from published material in the public domain and links to other pages associated with Stone Wheels.
