    • ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • nonelastic Not elastic; without the property of elasticity. Liquids were formerly termed non-elastic fluids, because they differ from gases in being non-expansible and nearly incompressible.

Usage


In science:

Nonelastic collisions on the side wall originate the impact proļ¬le that is experimentally observed (e.g. on the sonotrode (bottom wall), Fig 2c) and recovered from the simulation.
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
For the purpose of our analysis, what is important to observe is that the die will roll for as long as the nonelastic effects associated with so-called rol ling frictions remain lower than the sliding frictions, since in this case the die requires less energy to be moved by rolling than by sliding.

This comprises the slowing down caused by all relevant energy-loss mechanisms including elastic as well as nonelastic interactions .

Thereby, nonelastic nuclear reactions produce a spectrum of particles with each particle having an individual energy distribution which is furthermore a function of the position in the medium.
