- v. Third-person singular simple present indicative form of fluidize.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This "fluidizes" the normally solid seafloor in a small region surrounding their shells, so that it flows like a fluid.
Rather than stiffening, solidifying, and increasing traction forces above prestretch baseline values, as would be predicted from a reinforcement response, in most physiological circumstances the human airway smooth muscle cell promptly softens, fluidizes, and decreases traction force, with subsequent slow recoveries that approach but never exceed baseline values.
