The report is an attempt in very brief form to review some important concepts involving disperse systems such as thermal forces, entropy, and strain energy discuss the dynamics of molecular response to the motion of the solvent introduce and discuss the idea of critical strain rates, which arises naturally in the theory of molecular response relate molecular strain to fluid stresses through the use of Mohrs Circle discuss in a speculative way the role of fluid stiffness in turbulent flows, as for example in providing a mode for the extraction of turbulent energy from an eddy through the generation of elastic shear waves. Finally, it is speculated how the possibility for radiation damping may result in a two or three-fold thickening of the viscous sub-layer. Author
