dissipative dis"si*pa*tive (d[i^]s"s[i^]*p[asl]*t[i^]v), a. Tending to dissipate. [1913 Webster]

{Dissipative system} (Mech.), an assumed system of matter and motions in which forces of friction and resistances of other kinds are introduced without regard to the heat or other molecular actions which they generate; -- opposed to {conservative system}. [1913 Webster]
