Description

Tomlinson examines the principal physical properties of three alloys of nickel with iron and of non-magnetic manganese steel, together with the effects of mechanical stress and magnetisation on these properties. The three nickel-iron alloys contain 22, 25, and 30 per cent, of nickel, and are designated Specimens D, E, and E respectively; they are in the form of thin wires, and similar specimens have been previously tested by Dr John Hopkinson for the effect of change of temperature on their magnetic properties.

Annotations in pencil and ink throughout. Includes a table of contents.
