Blakesley

Thomas Holmes Blakesley (* 1847; † 13. Februar 1929) war ein britischer Mathematiker und Practical Scientist.

Nachdem er 1869 an der University of Cambridge graduiert hatte (34th Wrangler, 1869) machte er eine Lehre im Bauingenieurwesen und wurde dann freiberuflicher Berater.

Er interessierte sich für elektrische Übertragung, insbesondere Telephonie und Telegraphie. Er stand in Verbindung mit William Henry Preece und John Ambrose Fleming. Ein seinerzeitiges Problem war die Zeitverzögerung durch Selbstinduktion auf langen Strecken wie in Seekabeln. 1884 erhielt er ein Patent auf einen, von J. T. Mair & Co. London gebauten Apparat zur Messung der Zeitkonstanten von Stromkreisen.

Ab 1885 war er am Royal Naval College Dozent für Mathematik und Physik.
