coalesce into (something)

For two or more separate thing to merge or form into one thing. Initially, I wasn't sure if the movie was a drama or comedy, but it coalesced nicely into a dramedy as the plot unfolded.

coalesce into something

[for two or more things] to blend or fuse and become one thing. The fading colors coalesced into a gray blur. In the distance, the crowd coalesced into a single blob.

In the AGS experiments, it was found that the coalescence parameter ([B.sub.2]) is of similar magnitude for both d and [bar.d] indicating similar freeze-out hyper surface of nucleons and antinucleons.
The PPh act as a plasticizer to lower [T.sub.g] of latex film and its film formation enthalpy of coalescence. The microstructures of the latex film which dry under 70[degrees]C with the PPh for different time display that the PPh can accelerate the polymer molecules motion and the diffusion rate for the coalescence stage.
It can be explained from the microstructures that after two days of emulsification the collision between the droplets was increased in higher water contents and so, the coalescence process was dominated (stored emulsions).
Being exothermic, its decomposition tends to raise the temperature of the foaming system, and hence also tends to exacerbate bubble coalescence.
Therefore the bubble coalescence is occurring lately.
In the case of symmetrical problems, unlike the other modified decision trees (game and scenario trees), the proposed model allows for the use of the coalescence procedure.
The following section analyses vowel coalescence as one of the phonological processes that are used to remove vowel sequences in Nambya.
Techniques (3) used to monitor the coalescence of latex particles include fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), small angle neutron scattering (SANS), small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM), and atomic force microscopy (AFM).
The focus of this study is to identify droplet coalescence and critical droplet departure diameters on stationary and vibrating films, and determine the time it takes for droplets to reach those departure diameters.
Physically speaking, the coalescence process consists of three regimes, called the viscous, visco-inertia, and inertial coalescence regimes [1].
Bobet and Einstein [8] conducted uniaxial compressive tests on gypsum specimens with parallel cracks and compared the initiation, propagation, and coalescence of wing cracks and secondary cracks with open or closed fissure.
Sling-shot interactions with other stars can also take energy from widely spaced binaries, so as to reduce the time to coalescence, and also can create black hole binaries near the centres of galaxies.
They further established that the out-of-plane jumping motion is driven by surface energy initially stored on the droplets and released upon drop coalescence. This effect can locally cool hot spots.
During the demo, a soldier wearing a head-mounted display could interact with a weapon while Coalescence created a simulated environment, he said.
