Related to Throttling: throttling valve, CPU throttling


(aerospace engineering)
The varying of the thrust of a rocket engine during powered flight.
(control systems)
Control by means of intermediate steps between full on and full off.
An adiabatic, irreversible process in which a gas expands by passing from one chamber to another chamber which is at a lower pressure than the first chamber.



the flow of a fluid, vapor, or gas through a throttle—a local hydrodynamic resistance to a current (narrowing of a pipe, valve, or tap)—during which there is a change in pressure and temperature (the Joule-Thomson effect). The throttling effect is used mainly for copious cooling and liquefaction of gases. It is widely used to measure and regulate the consumption of liquids and gases.
