Über das zähe Fließen in Metallen und verwandte Erscheinungen = On the viscous flow in metals, and allied phenomena
It has been observed that for a lead wire, loaded well beyond the elastic limit, the extension after some time becomes proportional to the time, or the flow becomes viscous in character. The rate ofExpand

On the Circulations Caused by the Vibration of Air in a Tube
There seems a need for accurate measurements of the velocity of sound in gases, both at ordinary temperatures with chemically allied series of gases and vapours, and at high temperatures inExpand

The Viscosity of Liquids.
THE viscosity of liquids is a subject which, so far as I know, has hitherto been without any general theoretical basis. No physical mechanism, for example, has ever been brought forward to accountExpand

On the Groupings and General Behaviour of Solid Particles under the Influence of Air Vibrations in Tubes
In 1866 KUNDT showed, by a method described in every text-book of Sound, that if stationary waves are set up in the air in a long tube containing dust, then the wavelength is indicated by littleExpand

The Distribution of Slide in a Right Six-Face Subject to Pure Shear
The question of the exact distribution of slide in the cross-section of a body subjected to transverse force has recently attracted considerable attention in connection with the much-discussedExpand
