Definitions for "Viscoelasticity"
The tendency of secretions to stick together.
This is the macro chemical feature of Viscon that makes it an effective fuel additive. Viscoelasticity, synonymous with extensional viscosity, denotes elasticity under stress. A viscoelastic will behave like a liquid when not disturbed. However, when moved though a pipe of sprayed into the air, it behaves like a highly viscous mass.
The ability of a material to simultaneously exhibit viscous and elastic responses to deformation.
