Second letter from Herbert Tomlinson, on his paper 'The influence of stress and strain on the physical properties of matter. Part I. Elasticity (continued). The effect of change of temperature on the internal friction and torsional elasticity of metals' to the Secretary of the Royal Society

Reference number: RR/9/409

Date: 31 May 1886

Description

He is prepared to admit that 'wire-drawing may very materially decrease the torsional elasticity', but there is no 'experimental evidence' that the elasticity is not restored by annealing.
