Stability of a Viscous Liquid Contained between Two Rotating Cylinders
In recent years much information has been accumulated about the flow of fluids past solid boundaries. All experiments so far carried out seem to indicate that in all cases steady motion is possibleExpand

The Latent Energy Remaining in a Metal after Cold Working
Measurements of the latent energy remaining in metal rods after severe twisting are described. Very much more cold work can be done on a metal in torsion than in direct tension. It is found that asExpand

The Mechanism of Plastic Deformation of Crystals. Part I. Theoretical
Experiments on the plastic deformation of single crystals, of metals and of rock salt have given results which differ in detail but possess certain common characteristics. In general the deformationExpand

Effect of variation in density on the stability of superposed streams of Fluid
1. The chief part of the work described in this paper was done in 1914 and formed part of the essay for which the Adams Prize was awarded in 1915. During the war years it was laid aside, and sinceExpand

The air pressure on a cone moving at high speeds.—II
When a body moves through air at a uniform speed greater than that of sound, a shock wave is formed which remains fixed relative to the body. This wave is situated on a surface where a very abruptExpand

Experiments with Rotating Fluids
It is well known that predictions about fluid motion based on the classic hydrodynamical theory are seldom verified in experiments performed with actual fluids. The explanation of this want ofExpand

The Forces on a Body Placed in a Curved or Converging Stream of Fluid
The force which a body experiences when placed in a converging stream of fluid has a certain practical interest in aeronautics because the flow in the centre of a parallel-walled wind tunnel is ofExpand

Tidal Friction in the Irish Sea
The rate of dissipation of energy at spring tides in the Irish Sea is calculated from the known formulae for skin friction of the wind on the ground and the friction of rivers on their beds. TheExpand

Distribution of velocity and temperature between concentric rotating cylinders
It is not possible to distinguish between the Momentum Transport and the Vorticity Transport theories of turbulent flow by measurements of the distribution of velocity in a fluid flowing underExpand
