History: Equations of a gyrostatic aether

    I would be interested in the equations of a gyrostatic ether as brought up by McCullach and Lord Kelvin, best in a modern notation. Before people jump on me: I an not interested in questioning modern theories like SR but rather in the extensions of continuum mechanics these theories go in hand with.

    Sorry I can't help you with that, but perhaps someone else would, if you'd provide a little more background info...

    For example, do you have a link or reference to such a model (is it really a theory?); and maybe you can clarify how you think that such a model/theory leads (or led) to an extension of continuum mechanics (in other words, what could be or what was the use of it?).
