The property of fetching less viscousity when exposed to an applied stress is termed as Thixotropy.Example Certain gels or fluids that are viscous under static conditions will flow over time when shaken or stirred for a moment.It is a time-dependent shear thinning property. It is a type of fluid which takes a finite time to obtain equilibrium viscosity when introduced to a phase modification in shear rate. Many gels and colloids are thixotropic materials, exhibiting a stable form at relaxation but becoming fluid when disturbed.
