Abstract

FROM Prof. Greenhill's letter on this subject in NATURE, vol. xli. p. 517, as well as from that of a writer in Engineering, I gather that I did not succeed by my letter (NATURE, vol. xli. p. 296) in making quite clear the point of my explanation of the action, since Prof. Greenhill argues that consideration of the longitudinal stresses in the walls leads to the conclusion that the tube would curl up under internal pressure rather than uncurl.
