Matt Milner and Prof. Hutchens speak at APS March Meeting

Matt gave a talk entitled “Void Collapse as a Platform for Observing the Effects of Strain Stiffening on Creasing,” sharing his recent results on the surface tension-driven collapse of cavities within silicon elastomers. Prof. Hutchens gave a talk entitled “Injection initiated fracture in soft solids,” presenting some of Steven Yang’s recent cavitation rheology work in which he characterizes the failed cavities using microCT.

Prof. Hutchens gives a talk entitled “Considerations for Cavitation Rheology” discussing some of our recent understanding of the cavitation rheology soft materials characterization technique (e.g., blowing bubbles with needles!).
