THE theory of dilatancy, the characteristic of the deformation of granular materials, was given by Osborne Reynolds before the Aberdeen meeting of the British Association on Sept. 10 and 15, 1885, and later in a modified form before the Royal Institution, Feb. 12, 1886. These presentations were published in the Phil. Mag., vol. 20, pp. 469–481, 1885, and in NATURE, vol. 33, pp. 429–430, 1886, and later in Reynolds's collected papers.
