Definition of rheology in English:
The branch of physics that deals with the deformation and flow of matter, especially the non-Newtonian flow of liquids and the plastic flow of solids.
- Twenty-two papers are grouped into four contextual sections - the effect of fluids, microstructures and textures, deformation mechanisms and rheology and tectonics.
- Overall, the deformation behavior and power-law rheology indicate an extremely broad range of timescales that underlie reversible changes in nuclear structure.
- We explore the impact of rheology on actin-dependent cytoplasmic contraction, and find that although microtubules modulate contractile forces in vitro, their interactions are not purely mechanical.
- Example sentences
- In one case, the relationship between the force and the displacement was not linear which corresponded to a viscoelastic rheological behaviour.
- After the stochastic cytoskeletal detachment event, the tether was found to extend according to a viscous shear-thinning rheological power-law model.
- Because it is a rheological boundary, and rheological properties depend, inter alia, on strain rate, the thickness also depends on strain rate.
