newton - derived unit of force in the SI system.
Newton disk - a disk on which there are seven colored sectors, which, when rapidly rotated, appear white.
Newton law - the attractive force between any two bodies is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers. Synonym(s): law of gravitation
Newton rings - colored rings on thin surfaces.
newtonian aberration - the difference in focus or magnification of an image arising because of a difference in the refraction of different wavelengths composing white light. Synonym(s): chromatic aberration
newtonian constant of gravitation - a universal constant relating the gravitational force, attracting two masses toward each other when they are separated by a distance.
newtonian flow - the type of flow characteristic of a newtonian fluid.
newtonian fluid - a fluid in which flow and rate of shear are always proportional to the applied stress.
newtonian viscosity - the viscosity characteristics of a newtonian fluid.

In addition, unlike the Newtonian flow, the relative finger width of polymer solutions is viscosity dependent and may have values larger or smaller than the typical Newtonian limit of 0.
The viscoelastic flows tend to be more three-dimensional and more complex than the Newtonian flows.
The Newtonian flow (lower shear rates) promotes coalescence of the discrete PLA droplets, reducing the effective interfacial tension in the blend system as a result.
For a standard Newtonian flow in a duct with equal domain size, the proposed algorithm is between 8 and 15 times faster.
As a test for the model, the classical problem of a developing Newtonian flow in a square duct was solved (Figs.
In the same manner, the full thermo hydrodynamic Newtonian flow development was modeled as a test case for a square duct, and the results compare well against the literature (Fig.
For Newtonian flow, viscous normal stress is negligible:
11,n] normal stress in the machine direction for Newtonian flow

Making use of a suggestion made by Lumley (1973, 1978) to account for drag reduction caused by long-chain molecules, the authors of the present paper proposed some years ago that the viscous sublayer for non-Newtonian turbulent flows is generally thicker than for equivalent Newtonian flows and put forward a quantitative model to calculate this effect (Wilson and Thomas; 1985; Thomas and Wilson, 1987).
The first concerns the value of [mu] that applies in Equations (10) and (11), and the second refers to the coefficient that specifies the thickness of the viscous sublayer (for Newtonian flows this is 11.
