|Title||Tomlinson, Herbert: certificate of election to the Royal Society|
|Citation||Author of numerous papers on Physical Subjects published in the Phil Trans, Proc of the Royal Society, Philosophical Magazine etc, the most important of which relate to the influence of Stress & Strain on the Physical Properties of Matter. The following may be enumerated 1. Effect of Magnetisation on the Electrical Conductivity of Iron (Proc RS '75) (2) Increase in Resistance to the passage of an Electrical Current produced in Certain Wires by Stretching (Proc RS '77) (3) Alteration of Thermal Conductivity of Iron & Steel caused by Magnetism. (Proc RS '78). The following papers relate to the influence of Stress & Strain etc. (4) Moduli of Elasticity (Phil Trans '83). (5) Electrical Conductivity (Phil Trans '83). |
6. Relations between Moduli of Elasticity Thermal Capacity & other Physical Constants' (Proc RS '85).
7. Alteration of the Electrical Conductivity of Cobalt etc by Longitudinal Traction (Proc RS '85).
8. Internal Friction of metals (Phil Trans '86). (9) Coefficient of Viscosity of Air (Phil Trans '86). 10. On Certain sources of error in Connection with experiments on Torsional Vibrations (Phil Mag '85).
11. Temporary & Permanent effects on some of the Physical Properties of Iron prodd by raising the Tempre to 100 degrees C (Phil Mag '86). 12. Effect of change of temperature on the Internal Friction & Torsional Elasticity of Metals. (Abstr in Proc RS '86). 13. Effect of magnetisation on the Elasticity & the Internal Friction of Metals (Abstr in Proc RS '86. Paper to be printed in Phil Trans) and other papers.
