Post-nominal Letters
POST-NOMINAL LETTERS, also called POST-NOMINAL INITIALS, POST-NOMINAL TITLES or DESIGNATORY LETTERS, are letters placed after a person's name to indicate that that individual holds a position, academic degree, accreditation, office, military decoration, or honour, or is a member of a religious institute or fraternity. An individual may use several different sets of post-nominal letters, but in some contexts it may be customary to limit the number of sets to one or just a few. The order in which post-nominals are listed after a name is based on rules of precedence and what is appropriate for a given situation. Post-nominal letters are one of the main types of name suffix . In contrast, pre-nominal letters precede the name rather than following it

Dynastic Order
A DYNASTIC ORDER, MONARCHICAL ORDER, or HOUSE ORDER, is an order under royal patronage , bestowed by the head of a currently or formerly sovereign royal family as legitimate fons honorum . These are often considered part of the cultural patrimony of the royal family. They are orders of chivalry , and orders of merit just as those distributed by sovereign states , but dynastic orders were often founded or maintained to reward service to a monarch, or the monarch's subsequent dynasty. An example of this difference is seen between the Royal Victorian Order

Burnishing (metal)
BURNISHING is the plastic deformation of a surface due to sliding contact with another object. Visually, burnishing smears the texture of a rough surface and makes it shinier. Burnishing may occur on any sliding surface if the contact stress locally exceeds the yield strength of the material. CONTENTS * 1 Mechanics * 2 Effects on mechanical components * 3 In manufacturing * 4 See also * 5 References * 6 External links MECHANICS A ball carves a channel through a flat plate. To understand burnishing, first look at the simple case of a hardened ball on a flat plate. If the ball is pressed directly into the plate, stresses develop in both objects around the area where they contact. As this normal force increases, both the ball and the plate's surfaces deform. The deformation caused by the hardened ball is different depending on the magnitude of the force pressing against it
