A possible measure of drag is shear stress, but normal forces for inviscid flow can be viewed as responsible for most of the power loss.
the water from the upper source is emitted at the same speed as the main flow; there is thus no shear
Entrants in Geraldton Speed Shears had to demonstrate they could shear a sheep quickly and cleanly within a set time.
Friction and shear are mechanical forces contributing to pressure ulcer formation.
Immobilization of a wound often reduces pressure and shear forces and reduces the number of cycles of injury to which the wound is exposed.
A key element in these force and torque balances is the hydrodynamic shear force and torque that the cell experiences when stationary on a planar surface.
The advantage of the new approach is that the elastic modulus associated with shear waves varies greatly between different types of tissue.
One notable exception is that only women shear sheep and only men shear goats.
aluminium is not very resilient to shear forces
Generally, the sand stiffness decreases by decreasing the effective confining pressure or increasing the shear strains.
