In science:

We discuss various mechanisms by which this supply can be replenished after the loss cone has been depleted.
The Final Parsec Problem
At what scales and through which modes is turbulent energy dissipated? Is this energy replenished? If so, what are the primary sources of energy injection to the interstellar cloud (see Miesch & Bally 1994)? The structure function of velocity fluctuations provides a statistical road-map of energy flow within a volume.
Turbulence in the Star-forming Interstellar Medium: Steps toward Constraining Theories with Observations
Therefore, if the perpendicular energy of the protons is continually replenished by wave dissipation, the protons can maintain an anisotropic velocity distribution (Tp⊥ > Tpk) and there is a net outward force on the protons.
The Effect of Proton Temperature Anisotropy on the Solar Minimum Corona and Wind
Order of magnitude estimates along the lines of those mentioned in Section 2.2 indicate replenishment timescales larger than characteristic infall times, suggesting that contributions from a radially dependent stellar initial mass function (IMF) or other effects are not required.
Interstellar Turbulence II: Implications and Effects
In secular evolution, the bulge component is formed slowly from the disk through the bar action, and the disk can be replenished through continuous external gas accretion.
