Plasticity and Creep Theory in Engineering Mechanics
In October 1675 Robert Hooke showed in London an “Experiment of Spring” to the King, who was “very well pleased” /1/. Robert Hooke was Curator of Experiments of the Royal Society. The business of the Curator was “to furnish the Society every day they meet - that was once a week - with three or four considerable experiments, expecting no recompence till the Society gett a stock enabling to give it”. Hooke was quite intimate with the King, who took a detailed interest in scientific proceedings. Much of the work bore upon the needs of navigators at sea and it was in connection with the use of springs in time-keepers that Robert Hooke enunciated the fundamental law of spring.
