In science:

In this way Richardson conveyed an image of the creation of turbulence by large scale forcing, setting up a cascade of energy transfers to smaller and smaller scales by the nonlinearities of fluid motion, until the energy dissipates at small scales by viscosity, turning into heat.
Hydrodynamic Turbulence: a 19th Century Problem with a challenge for the 21st Century
The idea is that for very large values of Re there is a wide separation between the “scale of energy input” L and the typical “viscous dissipation scale” η at which viscous friction become important and dumps the energy into heat.
Hydrodynamic Turbulence: a 19th Century Problem with a challenge for the 21st Century
An important example is the rate ǫ(r, t) at which energy is dissipated into heat due to viscous damping.

Existence of this correlation can be attributed to the dissipative character of the gas: after a perturbation event that heats both the stellar and gas disks, the gas can dissipate the extra-kinetic energy away, and flatten again to its regulated thin disk.
Tidally-triggered disk thickening. II. Results and interpretations
In very gas rich galaxies, after a galaxy interaction that has heated the stellar disk, gas dissipation can quickly makes the galaxy recover its equilibrium thickness, through star formation in the thin gas disk.
