TitleReferee's report by Leonard Bairstow, on a paper 'On the torsion of conical shells' by Richard Vynne Southwell
DateJuly 1937
DescriptionSectional committee: Engineering

He isn't satisfied with the conclusions reached. The discussion isn't convincing and he interprets the argument in a different way. The author should reconsider the part of the paper that deals with distortions, as the footnote provided isn't helpful.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1937].
