When we use the term consistency, we usually refer to the flavour and aroma of a beer. The beer consistency is sometimes suspect in some import beers due to freshness and quality control. Large Canadian beer companies offer beers that are consistent in taste, aroma, and availability. This is what makes the beer appealing to many beer drinkers.
The degree of plasticity of fresh concrete or mortar The normal measure of consistency is slump for concrete and flow for mortar.
The ability of fresh concrete to flow. The usual measure of consistency is slump.
The condition of standing or adhering together, or being fixed in union, as the parts of a body; existence; firmness; coherence; solidity.

propriety of an assessor that induces to a nearing of the parameter to the real value that one wants to assess as the number of samples increases Contour line: it is the set of constant contour lines describing the planimetrical course of the terrain. They are generally obtained through manual interpolation or automatically starting from a TIN, a DEM or a DTM..
A term describing the texture, usually the thickness/thinness of a mixture.
The physical nature of a substance or liquid, which can be thick or thin, smooth or lumpy.
The thickness or brushability of a paint.
An axiomatic theory is consistent if it's impossible (in the confines of the theory) to prove simultaneously a statement and its negation. The Godel's Theorem states that any (sufficiently powerful) consistent axiomatic theory is incomplete.
A property of formal logical systems in which all statements are either true or false.
Quality of a text in which the same object or the same concept is always expressed by the same term (terminological consistency), or where the same action or idea is always expressed by exactly the same phrase or group of phrases (phraseological consistency). In technical texts, a single item or operation is frequently mentioned on several occasions. Here, a phraseological dictionary can be added to the dictionary of terms, since both make it possible to apply various automatic processes that reduce production and translation costs. Moreover, and generally speaking, a respect for consistency simplifies the comprehension of the text and makes it possible to avoid many cases of ambiguity.

Dry solids content (%) of pulp present in a pulp slurry
The weight percent of air-dry (or oven dry) fibrous material in a stock or stock suspension. Low consistency (3% - 5%, LC), medium consistency (10% - 15%, MC) and high consistency (30% - 50%, HC) are distinguished
Percentage of bone dry solids by weight in pulp or stock.
One of the fundamental accounting concepts. A company must prepare its accounts on a consistent basis year on year to facilitate comparisons.
The convention that an accounting procedure, once adopted is not changed from one period to another unless users are informed of the change.
To achieve comparability of information over time, the same accounting methods must be followed. If accounting methods are changed from period to period, the effects must be disclosed.
A paradox in that it infers the necessity of defined conclusions in order to ascertain that they fit the premises, and yet these conclusions can only have meaning if they also have a structure. Structure necessarily means that it includes also the indefinite, in which case, the conclusions cannot be totally defined. So the only way to achieve consistency is by way of the dynamics of paradoxes.
Conformity of information or measures over successive periods of reporting
preservation of conformance of the structure and contents of data to rules established by: a particular IPSE as defined by the PCIS, implementation-defined PCIS values and parameters, IPSE administrators, and users.

means that the proposed land use plan does not conflict with officially approved plans, programs, and policies of tribes, other Federal agencies, and State and local governments to the extent practical within Federal law, regulation, and policy.
The degree of consistency in an SDS code is determined by the distance between the first two code letters on the hexagon:  High, first two letters are adjacent on the hexagon (e.g., RI); Average, first two letters are alternate on the hexagon (e.g., RA); Low, first two letters are opposite on the hexagon (e.g., RS).  High consistency is positively correlated with more stability in work history and the direction of career preferences or work histories.
Physical Properties and Testing Property of a material by which it resists permanent change of shape.
A qualitative means of classifying substances, especially semisolids, according to their resistance to dynamic changes in shape.
action that has been derived from goals, principles, objectives, etc. and which one will not have to regret later on is consistent
the level of predictability in the layout and behavior of a user interface; a key principle in user-interface design.
A property of transactions that implies that the results preserve data integrity; in other words, given the same conditions, a transaction must always produce the same results.
The in ACID. Consistency means that each transaction starts in a consistent state and ends in a consistent state. One transaction cannot “see” the changes caused by another transaction until that other transaction completes.
each transaction is programmed to perserved database consistency.
