Date14 May 1920
DescriptionRefers to two papers currently before the Applied Sciences Committee, 'On the conditions at the boundary of a fluid in turbulent motion' by [Thomas Edward] Stanton, Miss [Dorothy] Marshall and Mrs C. N. Bryant, and 'Experiments in the pressure wave thrown out by submarine explosions' by H. W. Hilliar. Explains that reports on the first paper suggest it be condensed, while there is concern over publishing the second at all on account of the value of the results obtained to potential enemies.
