TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Robert Jones
Date12 August 1915
Description'Your paper on the motion of a stream of finite deapth past a body has been carefully considered and the Committee to which it was referred are prepared to recommen it for publication, but before proceeding further in the matter I am desired to communicate the following suggestion to you for your consideration, and to ask whether you would care to make a short addition to the paper on the lines suggested in this note:-
The author should be asked to discuss how far the superposition of a circulation round the body, which is artiificially adjusted so as to avoid a singularity at one edge, is likely to be a good representation of the action of a viscous eddying strea,. Kutta and others have assumed that this is so, without however really going into the question. It is very [important] that this question should be gone into.'
