First, in a human blood rheology study, astaxanthin supplementation created significant improvement in capillary blood flow.
At this point it requires some rheology of materials, but if the planet were rotating the bulge would remain pointing radially towards the star and the rotation would force the material to deform as it rotates.
Other developments, including the elastic-viscous-plastic rheology , are helpful in acheiving high computational efficiency.
Having considered a hierarchy of stand-alone sea-ice models with different dynamic parameterizations, SIMIP found the viscous-plastic rheology to provide the best simulation results and adopted it as a starting point for further optimizations .
The American Institute of Physics AIP calls itself “A Federation of the Physical Sciences,” including acoustics, astronomy, geophysics, and rheology.
Lucia provided very good commentary on the rheology of non-Newtonian fluids.
R., and Holdsworth, G., 1986: An investigation of low-stress ice rheology on the Ward-Hunt Ice Shelf.
The rheology of the Ellesmere Island ice shelves might be interesting.
I presume that “ick” is a technical term in rheology.
This article describes some terms common in rheology.
