TitleReferee's report by Geoffrey Ingram Taylor, on a paper 'The forces on a solid body in a stream of viscous fluid' by T E Garstang
Date12 March 1936
DescriptionSectional Committee: Mathematics

No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Finds the mathematics correct. Finds no interest in the principles, as all the interest lies entirely with the mathematics. Finds the work more suited for the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society. Suggests submitting the paper to Leonard Bairstow or Thomas Henry Havelock.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society]
