Related Terms

FILTRATION (BETA) RATIO

The ratio of the number of particles greater than a given size in the influent fluid to the number of particles greater than the same size in the effluent fluid.

ADIABATIC EFFICIENCY

The ratio of actual work output of a heat engine to the ideal output.

BETA-RATIO (ß-RATIO)

The ratio of the number of particles greater than a given size in the influent fluid to the number of particles greater than the same size in the effluent fluid, under specified test conditions (see 'Multi-Pass Test').

BULK MODULUS (OF ELASTICITY)

A ratio of normal stress to a change in volume. A term used in determining the compressibility of a fluid. Data for petroleum products can be found in the International Critical Tables.

AIR-FUEL RATIO

The ratio weight, or volume, of air to fuel.

SENSIBLE HEAT FACTOR

The ratio of sensible heat to total heat.

POISE

A measure of viscosity (absolute viscosity) numerically equal to the force required to move a plane surface of one square centimeter per second when the surfaces are separated by a layer of fluid one centimeter in thickness. It is the ratio of the shearing stress to the shear rate of a fluid and is expressed in dyne seconds per square centimeter (DYNE SEC/CM2); 1 centipoise equals .01 poise.

POROSITY

The ratio of pore volume to total volume of a filter medium expressed as a percent.

SLIP RATIO

The ratio between two phase velocities.

THERMAL EFFICIENCY

Ratio of shaft work out of a system to the heat energy into the system.
