viscous fluid

viscous fluid

[′vis·kəs ′flü·əd]
(fluid mechanics)
A fluid whose viscosity is sufficiently large to make the viscous forces a significant part of the total force field in the fluid.

She moved as one in the throes of some hideous nightmare--slowly, painfully, as though each limb was hampered by a great weight, or as she were dragging her body through a viscous fluid. The aperture was close, ah, so close, yet, struggle as she would, she seemed to be making no appreciable progress toward it.
Arsenio (NYU Abu Dhabi) and Saint-Raymond (Ecole Normale Superieure) examine the incompressible viscous fluid limits of the system of Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann equations for one or two spaces, and the evolution of the fluid governed by equations of Navier-Stokes-Fourier type.
These occur due to a buildup of synovial fluid (a viscous fluid that lubricates the joints).
In Friedman-Robertson-Walker (FRW) universes, viscosity appears as the only dissipate phenomenon, so a considerable amount of interest is seen in the study of cosmological models with bulk viscous fluid. In the inflationary phase, the contribution of bulk viscosity is well recognized, which gives rise to a negative pressure that simulates a repulsive gravity.
Viscous fingering, i.e., the Saffman-Taylor instability [60], occurs when a less viscous fluid displaces a more viscous fluid (M < 1) at sufficiently large capillary numbers.
And there were times I had to let your nose run, however unsightly the viscous fluid looked.
Which four letter word beginning with B is a yellow or greenish viscous fluid secreted by the liver?
Gersten and Gross [2] considered the viscous fluid and studied the effect of transverse sinusoidal suction velocity on flow with heat transfer over a porous wall.
In this work, we presented a dynamic model on the dynamics of the motion of sliding and rotary drill strings for perfectly elastic contact in a viscous fluid environment.
A number of research works have been devoted to the problems of viscous fluid motion in the cracks [1-4] but the obtained results are not sufficient for explanation of the manifestation causes of the anomalous hydrodynamic behavior of fluids in the microcrack.
The sea&nbsp;cucumber-like PokAaAaAeA@mon's body is describ as having a covering of a slippery and viscous fluid that helps in moisturizing the pocket monster.
CD Diagnostics is focused on analyzing biomarker profiles for various clinical conditions in synovial fluid (a viscous fluid that reduces friction between articular cartilage), and creating diagnostic assays that help physicians make informed decisions that optimize patient care.
