TitleSecond letter from Herbert Tomlinson, on his paper 'The influence of stress and strain on the physical properties of matter. Part I. Elasticity (continued). The effect of change of temperature on the internal friction and torsional elasticity of metals' to the Secretary of the Royal Society
Date31 May 1886
DescriptionHe is prepared to admit that 'wire-drawing may very materially decrease the torsional elasticity', but there is no 'experimental evidence' that the elasticity is not restored by annealing.
