inertial flow

inertial flow

[i′nər·shəl ′flō]
(fluid mechanics)
Flow in which no external forces are exerted on a fluid.
(geophysics)
Frictionless flow in a geopotential surface in which there is no pressure gradient; the centrifugal and Coriolis accelerations must therefore be equal and opposite, and the constant inertial wind speed Vi is given by Vi = fR, where f is the Coriolis parameter and R the radius of curvature of the path.

The slow, inertial flow also reduces stress on the cells, resulting in more than 90 percent of viable cells with preserved multipotency.
The slow, inertial flow also reduces stress on the cells, resulting in a high percentage (more than 90 percent) of viable cells with preserved multipotency.
By managing material speed and direction, Inertial Flow transfer chutes minimize impact and wear on liners and belts, while containing dust and spillage generated at transfer points.
