Definitions for "NEWTONIAN"
A term which describes the flow characteristics of a fluid. A Newtonian fluid is one where the shear rate is proportional to the shear stress. This proportionality is the fluid viscosity. Water and most hydrocarbon liquids (crude oils, gasoline, diesel, etc.) are examples of Newtonian fluids.
term used to describe the viscous behavior of a fluid - where the viscosity is independent of both time and shear stress.
A term used to describe the rheological characteristics of a liquid that has an absolute viscosity, i.e., water, that does not change with temperature fluctuations or shear rate.
Pertaining to a philosophy of the universe invented by Newton, who discovered that an apple will fall to the ground, but was unable to say why. His successors and disciples have advanced so far as to be able to say when.
Of or pertaining to Sir Isaac Newton, or his discoveries.
of or relating to or inspired by Sir Isaac Newton or his science; "Newtonian physics"
an obstructed optical system and the desire to downsize this obstruction as much as possible can create difficulties for our lowest power systems
Term referring to action-reaction systems. For example, propulsion by means of pushing accelerated gas out the back of a ship, where the reaction causes the ship to move forward. The IPS is an example of this. Warp drive has no normal action/reaction component associated with it, and is called non-Newtonian.
