Papers relating to Imperial College

Scope and Content

Dr Cochrane left a large number of notes and working papers on various aspects of thermodynamics, entropy, the theory of gases, etc. relating to his work as Demonstrator and Lecturer at the College. The papers were very disordered and few bore dates; where a numbered sequence of pages, a format of paper, or a clear indication of the content permitted, they have been grouped together, but some remain unidentified. D.11 – D.16 refer to 6 envelopes of notes, translations, photographs, etc. left by Cochrane in the Department of Physics, Imperial College. This material was sorted and identified by Professor Moses Blackman, FRS, Professor of Physics, Imperial College; each envelope contains his descriptive note on its contents, and only a brief indication is given in the list below.
