TitleLetter from Alfred Charles Glyn Egerton, to Ronald Winckworth, regarding a paper 'The friction of lubricated metals' by Frank Philip Bowden and L Leben
Date13 February 1940
DescriptionSectional Committee: Engineering

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Agrees with the opinions of David Randall Pye. Thinks the paper would have been improved if the discussion was more precise. If the authors do not wish to shorten the paper then it is not too long for the Philosophical Transactions.
