Definition of the noun Dilatant

What does Dilatant mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: dilatants

  1. A dilator.
  2. [physics] A substance whose viscosity increases with rate of shear.

Explanation

Dilatant: A dilatant material is one in which viscosity increases with the rate of shear strain. Such a shear thickening fluid, also known by the acronym STF, is an example of a non-Newtonian fluid.
