TitleReferee's report by William Ernest Stephen Turner, on a paper 'Fatigue of mineral glass under static and cyclic loading' by C Gurney and S Pearson
Date9 June 1946
DescriptionSectional committee: Chemistry

Not recommended for publication in its present form. There is an 'obvious lack of precise care ' in the selection of glass specimens. The tests should be repeated with material that is more strictly selected and controlled. The authors should refer to a paper published in the Journal of Applied Physics that deals with the same subject.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1948].
