This is what makes a set of utterances hang together, making them different from just a list: A - The boiler's gone out. B - I'll ring the man. There is no visible connection between the two utterances, but a hearer with the same cultural experience as the speaker's would see the link.
The force by which like particles are held together. It varies with different metals and depends upon molecular arrangement due to heat treatment.
(Cohesive strength, internal bond) – The ability of the adhesive to resist splitting. Good cohesion is necessary for clean removal. OLD FLOW - The tendency of a pressure sensitive adhesive to act like a heavy viscous liquid over a period of time.

Physical Properties and Testing Property of a material structure to hold itself together by intermolecular attraction when subjected to tensile or shear strain.
All of the shear strength of a soil not due to friction. Cohesion can be pictures as an inherent tensile force that arises from the attraction that exists between very small particles.
Compare with adhesion. Attraction between like molecules.
Cohesion refers to the strength of the material to support itself. As opposed to adhesion (see). Adhesion failure happens when one layer delaminates from another, cohesion failure is when the delamination occurs within a material.
The state in which the particles of a single substance are held together, as opposed to adhesion where two different substances are held together
The condition where individual particles are united or stuck together to form a coherent unit.
the state of cohering or sticking together
(botany) the process in some plants of parts growing together that are usually separate (such as petals)
(physics) the intermolecular force that holds together the molecules in a solid or liquid
The internal affinity of a material to itself.
Cohesion is the ability to stick together.
the attraction water molecules have for each other.
The attraction of water molecules to each other as a result of hydrogen bonding.
That property of a substance that causes it to resist being pulled apart by mechanical means.
The attractive force between the same kinds of molecules. It is the force that holds the molecules of a substance together, and is contrasted with adhesion.
the characteristic of identically structured molecules to stick to each other.
the tendency of like molecules to be attracted to one another, as occurs with polar water molecules; such molecules form a highly dynamic structure involving many rapidly breaking and forming hydrogen bonds; water has high cohesion, enough so that insects can walk on water
Describes how strongly a collection of parts belong together. A set of attributes storing the name, age and sex of a Person are highly cohesive, whereas a method which performs two unrelated tasks has low cohesion. Good designs have high cohesion.
Shear stress at yield under zero normal stress, i.e. the intersection of the yield locus with the ordinate.
The bonding or attraction between particles of certain fine-grained soils that enhances shear strength and is independent of confining pressure.
is the force between molecules of an oil painting medium/oil paint mixture that acts to unite them into a paint film.
the force by which the molecules of a substance are held together. condensation: the process of changing from a vapor (gas) to a liquid. condense: water vapor that changes into a liquid.
co-HEE-jhun The strong attraction of water molecules to each other. 40
The ability of a coating to hold together (the attraction of molecules within the coating).
A bonding together of a single substance to itself. Internal adhesion.
The tendency of a mass to hold together by primary or secondary valence forces (intermolecular attraction).
The molecular attraction or joining of the surfaces of two pieces of the same substance.
The attractive force that internally binds a material.
a molecular attraction by which the particles of a body are united throughout the mass whether like or unlike. Compare adhesion.
State in which the particles of a paint film are held together into a continuous film by primary or secondary valence forces.
The force that holds molecules of the same substance together.
A property of soil which holds the particles together by sticking. Also, the soil's ability to resist shear is determined by its degree of cohesiveness.
the intermolecular attraction between separate molecules of a homogeneous phase
the ability of a substance to stick to itself and pull itself together
cohaerere, to stick together] The binding together of like molecules, often by hydrogen bonds.
the sticking together of floral parts of the same whorl without organic fusion. adj. coherent.
The molecular attraction that holds the surfaces of like substances in contact. For ex- ample, the attraction between water molecules is cohesion.
The shear stress due to cementation or interparticle bonds in soils.
The relationship among different internal elements of an object.
The internal resistance of individual soil particles to separate from one another.
Propensity of a single substance to adhere to itself; the internal attraction of molecular particles to each other; the ability to resist partition from a bulk substance; the force holding a substance together.
The forces which bind the particles of a coating together into a continuous film.
the internal strength of an adhesive or sealant
The attractive force between like molecules. It is the force that holds the molecules of a paint film or other substance together.
The molecular force between particles within a body or substance that acts to unite them. When discussing thin-film coatings, this refers to the stability of the coating matrix.
the degree of internal bonding of one substance to itself.
The internal strength of an adhesive, its resistance to flow, and the resistance to failure or splitting when labels are removed, or under stress.
Holding together; force holding a solid or liquid together, owing to attraction between like molecules; cohesion decreases with rise in temperature.
Attraction of molecules within a coating [how it holds together).
The state in which the particles of a single substance are held together by primary or secondary valence forces observed in the tendency of the substance to stick to itself. As used in the adhesive field, the state in which the particles of the adhesive (or the adhered) are held together.
Apparent cohesion (c´) is the intercept on the shear stress axis of a straight-line Mohr-Coulomb envelope. For critical states and residual states, c'c = c'r = 0 in most cases. For peak states, a curved strength envelope also passes through the origin, but a straight-line fitted to a small number of results is often extrapolated to give an intercept c'p 0. (In physics, cohesion is described as ‘the force that holds together molecules or like particles within a substance'.) See also adhesion and true cohesion.
The attraction between molecules of water.
Molecular attraction which holds two particles together
Property of a module in which all the parts belong together. In a cohesive module all the parts are closely related; there are no extraneous parts.
The forces which bind the particles of ink or varnish film together. It is distinct from "adhesion", the forces binding the film to its substrate.
The propensity of a single substance to adhere to itself. The internal attraction of molecular particles toward each other. The ability to resist partition of itself. The force holding a single substance together.
In computer programming, cohesion is a measure of how well the lines of source code within a module work together to provide a specific piece of functionality. Cohesion is an ordinal type of measurement and is usually expressed as "high cohesion" or "low cohesion" when being discussed. Modules with high cohesion tend to be preferable because high cohesion is associated with several desirable traits of software including robustness, reliability, reusability, and understandability whereas low cohesion is associated with undesirable traits such as being difficult to maintain, difficult to test, difficult to reuse, and even difficult to understand.
Cohesion or cohesive attraction or cohesive force in chemistry is the intermolecular attraction between like-molecules. Cohesion explains phenomena such as surface tension. Capillary action for example described in the Cohesion-tension theory related to botany is considered a mix of cohesion and adhesion.
