|Title||Letter from Richard Vynne Southwell, to Alfred Charles Glyn Egerton, regarding a paper 'Relaxation methods applied to engineering problems VIIA - Biharmonic analysis as applied to the flexure and extension of flat elastic plates' by L Fox and Richard Vynne Southwell|
|Date||27 February 1941|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Engineering|
Sends a paper which he hopes can be printed in the Philosophical Transactions. Refers to work of Ernest George Coker and Louis Napoleon George Filon. David Randall Pye thinks the paper should be withheld, believing 'that the method should be kept secret during the war, - I think, on the ground that you should never save your enemy's time!' Hopes that the paper can be printed for restricted circulation, similar to those of Geoffrey Ingram Taylor. Thinks, for secrecy, that the paper should not be numbered as part of the Relaxation series yet.
