Referee's report by Hugh Longbourne Callendar, on a paper 'On the convection of heat from small cylinders in a stream of fluid: Determination of the convection constants of small platinum wires with applications to hot-wire anemometry' by Louis Vessot King

Reference number: RR/21/102

Date: May 1914

Description

Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Has not seen the envelope of images referred to. Considers the paper too condensed. Is not familiar enough with current mathematical research to know which parts are novel. Suggests his method for eliminating the 'raw effect'.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1914]
