XPLOR(TM) dry emulsifiers have minimal resistance to flow, even at temperatures below freezing, so they are easier to work with in cold climates than conventional liquid emulsifiers that need to be hot boxed, steamed or jacketed in order to pour in frigid conditions.
A higher repulsive surface charge," the authors explain, "increases spacing between erythrocytes, reduces clumping, lowers viscosity, and lowers peripheral resistance to flow.
The facility also will serve as a test facility to test the newly designed burners and combustion principles with regard to fuel economy and emissions monitoring and combustion tests fibrous materials with regard to the resistance to flow at different temperatures.
Baking makes things worse as viscosity decreases and there is less resistance to flow.
Another key feature of fluids is that resistance to flow increases rapidly as the flow rate increases, as we all know from experience with door closers.
The GAG chains provide resistance to flow, so the water can't get out of our cartilage instantly when we compress it.
This rests upon the Poiseuille equation, which demonstrates that resistance to flow of gas through a tube is directly proportional to length, while being inversely proportional to the radius of the tube to the fourth power (when flow is laminar).
The typical TCU has a centrifugal pump, and the flow rate depends on the resistance to flow (pressure drop) for a given arrangement of hoses, manifolds, fittings, and water lines.
The heavy oil's extreme viscosity raises its resistance to flow, which means reserves are nearly or completely immobile in the reservoirs.
So instead of looking at resistance to flow, we are looking at the conductance or ease of flow.
But droplet formation is affected by ink properties including density, surface tension and viscosity, which is the measure of resistance to flow, or "gloopiness.
