|Title||Unpublished paper, 'Effects of stress on the thermoelectric quality of metals. Part I' by J A [James Alfred] Ewing|
|Description||Ewing undertakes an investigation with the view of finding whether the gradual mechanical change which goes on with lapse of time after stretching wires (which Ewing described in a paper published in volume 30 of the Proceedings of the Royal Society as 'On certain effects of stress on soft iron wires') is associated with a corresponding change in thermoelectric quality. The experiments bring to light some unexpected results with regard to the immediate effects of stress, which Ewing discusses in the paper alongside the effects of longitudinal pull on iron.|
