A relation R is antisymmetric if,

for all x and y, x R y and y R x => x == y.

I.e. no two different elements are mutually related.

Partial orders and total orders are antisymmetric. If R is also symmetric, i.e.

x R y => y R x


x R y => x == y

I.e. different elements are not related.

The normal deviatoric stress acted on viscoelastic fluid is larger than Newtonian fluid, the higher of We about viscoelastic fluid is, the larger normal deviatoric stress is; and the distribution of normal deviatoric stress is different, is anti-symmetric for the Newtonian fluid, but for viscoelastic fluid, with the increase of We, this anti-symmetric decreases gradually, the higher compression on Upstream of oil film is, the lower tension on downstream of oil film is.
