|Referee's report by James Alfred Ewing, on a paper 'The minute structure of metals and other plastic solids' by George Thomas Beilby
|Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry
Recommended for publication. He cannot follow much of the author's reasoning or fully grasp the conclusion. He is not convinced by the experiments that the conclusions drawn are sound. Finds no real evidence of the spicules being due to any other causes than surface markings. Thinks the remarks on the effect of strain are based on a misconception of the phenomena. Here and there are observations which are suggestive and possibly valuable, but as a whole he does not think the author has proved anything.
