dynamic equilibrium

[dī¦nam·ik ē·kwə′lib·rē·əm]
Also known as kinetic equilibrium.
(mechanics)
The condition of any mechanical system when the kinetic reaction is regarded as a force, so that the resultant force on the system is zero according to d'Alembert's principle.
(physics)
A condition in which several processes act simultaneously to maintain a system in an overall state that does not change with time.

Among the best examples of this process, referred to as dynamic equilibrium, are the creation of a new decision-making framework based on unanimous consent for foreign policy found in the Maastricht Treaty (1992) and the proposal in the 2007 Lisbon Treaty to give national parliaments a veto on EU-level agreements to abandon the unanimity principle in certain policy areas.

The growth of the attenuation at the beginning of all the experiments is characterized by a delay that can be attributed to microporosity or craze nucleation, Then, the attenuation, after a sudden increase, levels to a constant value for the thicker sample [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 5 OMITTED], while the glass-rubber interface moves across the sample, suggesting that a dynamic equilibrium may occur: scattering of ultrasonic waves increases as crazing occurs in the glassy matrix at the same rate at which scattering decreases as the further water uptake determines the transition from a glass to a rubbery polymer.
Consequently, the social fabric, and its underlying seemingly flimsy foundation of commonly understood conventions, ought to be conceptualized as a dynamic equilibrium.
