German term or phrase: Scherenergie
From a patent for skin cream wipes:

"Es handelt sich um eine bezeichnende heiß-kalt-Emulgierung. Diese Bezeichnung beschreibt eine Zusammenbringung einer heißen Ölphasen (wegen der festen, aufzuschmelzenden Emulgatoranteile) und einer kalten, wässrigen Phase, wobei eine kinetisch stabile o/w-Emulsion gebildet wird. Dies wird unterstützend durch die Zuführung mechanischer Energie (Scherenergie der Tröpfchen der inneren Phase – hier durch Homogenisieren)."

shear forces

High shear forces are applied in miniemulsion.

The nanometric size of the oil droplet of the emulsion is usually achieved by applying high shear forces (high input of mechanical energy). U. S. 6,541,018, U. S. Patent Nos. 6,120,778 and 6,559,183 and U. S. Patent Application No. 2003/0206955 disclose processes of preparing nanoemulsions using a high pressure homogenizer.

disagree  Erik Freitag: The source text clearly talks about energy, not force.
