When the wind blows over water, for example, the instability manifests itself in the form of waves that rise gently and then roll into chaotic turbulence.Katz then realized that a novel mud might instability instability. Something had to be in the mud that would change its dynamic properties are added.

Or how they are used, say in the ketchup commercial ‘Anticipation makes me wait. ‘Other examples of shear-thinning fluids are toothpaste, mayonnaise, and – crucially – drilling mud, which is typically a slurry, or watery mixture of clay and other minerals.In order to suppress instability, the mud needed shear-thickening shear-thickening rather than a shear-thinning fluid – like quicksand. As any reader of the Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook know, when you fall into quicksand, it is important to move slowly. The faster you move, the more the quicksand will resist your movement.
