In February, 1909, he read a paper before the Royal Society on 'The Tension of Metallic Films Deposited by Electrolysis,' published in the Royal Society's Proceedings. In 1909 he gave three 'Cantor Lectures' before the Royal Society of Arts on 'Steam Turbines,' dealing with their theory and latest developments. He has taken out, in conjunction with the Hon C A Parsons and others, the following papents in addition to those submitted with the original certificate, viz: - Patents 16599/07, 27633/07, 6180/08, 17881/08, 6177/09
