Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
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.
- ‘The power-law rheology seen here, as in a number of cellular systems, rules out any single timescale.’
- ‘Twenty-two papers are grouped into four contextual sections - the effect of fluids, microstructures and textures, deformation mechanisms and rheology and tectonics.’
- ‘In this model, plant cell walls could be visualized as a ‘tangle’ of microfibrils, with wall rheology determined by spatial constraint upon further microfibril movement.’
- ‘Previous workers have attributed these differences to changes in rheology, i.e. brittle faulting in sandstones v. more ductile folding and faulting in dolostones.’
- ‘A molecular explanation for turgor-dependent changes in wall rheology is proposed in the quantitative molecular model of Passioura and Fry.’
- ‘Thus, consistent with previous findings, these dense cells are likely to contribute to poor rheology of sickle cell blood at all O2 saturations.’
- ‘We can do that because the topography that a planet can support is dependent upon structure and rheology.’
- ‘The crowding could lead to polymerization or cross-linking events between macromolecules that might account for a change in rheology of the cytoplasm other than that caused by actin polymerization.’
- ‘We did not rely on force curve analysis for quantitative evaluation of complex cellular rheology but instead used the indentation modulation procedure described below.’
- ‘Post et al. showed that quartz rheology is sensitive to water fugacity, but the above extrapolations do not apply to identical values of water fugacity.’
- ‘None of these theological features were observed in our cell measurements, thereby suggesting that F-actin models are too simple to account for the complex rheology of the cells.’
- ‘Overall, the deformation behavior and power-law rheology indicate an extremely broad range of timescales that underlie reversible changes in nuclear structure.’
- ‘In the case of taxol-stabilized extracts, we measure little difference in network rheology as compared to the untreated gels, yet observe striking differences in their contractile behavior.’
- ‘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.’
- ‘We lack quantitative sedimentological and structural data on the Somma-Vesuvius debris avalanches, but we can make some interpretations regarding their rheology.’
- ‘Compactability is a measure of how easily the concrete is compacted and is the most-abused characteristic of vertical concrete's rheology.’
- ‘The stiffness of the constituent polymers of a mucous gel will also have a direct influence on the structure of the gel, particularly on characteristics such as rheology, film stability, and pore size.’
- ‘Knowledge of polymer rheology is essential in maintaining uniform textures in molded products such as, for example, an ice cream sandwich.’
- ‘They can inform us about the origin and ongoing development of many parts of the ocean basins, about former and current plate movements, about upper-Earth rheology, and about postglacial sea-level rise, among other processes.’
- ‘As with the cytoskeletal networks, rheology thus provides a valuable tool for studying networks composed of micrometer-scale clusters, where light scattering studies fail.’
1920s: from Greek rheos ‘stream’ + -logy.
