ACCELERATION
The rate of change of velocity, as a function of time. Expressed in m/s2.

ANEMOMETER
An instrument for measuring the velocity of a fluid.

TERMINAL VELOCITY
The highest sustained air stream velocity existing in the mixed air path at the end of the throw.

PARTICLE EROSION
Occurs when fluidentrained particles moving at high velocity pass through orifices or impinge on metering surfaces or sharp angle turns.

CENTRIFUGAL PUMP
Pump which produces fluid velocity and converts it to pressure head.

PARTICLE IMPINGEMENT EROSION
A particulate wear process where high velocity, fluid entrained particles are directed at target surfaces.

SHEAR STRESS
Frictional force overcome in sliding one layer of fluid along another, as in any fluid flow. The shear stress of a petroleum oil or other Newtonian fluid at a given temperature varies directly with shear rate (velocity). The ratio between shear stress and shear rate is constant; this ratio is termed viscosity of a Newtonian fluid, the greater the shear stress as a function of rate of shear. In a nonNewtonian fluid, such as a grease or a polymercontaining oil (e.g. multigrade oil)  shear stress is not proportional to the rate of shear. A nonNewtonian fluid may be said to have an apparent viscosity, a viscosity that holds only for the shear rate (and temperature) at which the viscosity is determined.

SLIP VELOCITY
The phase velocity difference between two phases.

MULTIPHASE FLOW VELOCITY
The flow velocity of a multiphase flow. It may also be defined by the relationship (Multiphase volume flow rate / Pipe crosssection).

PHASE VELOCITY
The velocity of one phase of a multiphase flow at a crosssection of a conduit. It may also be defined by the relationship (Superficial phase velocity * Phase area fraction).
