What’s the matter with granular matter? by Kerstin Nordstrom

Apr 25, 2019, 3:30 PM-4:45 PM

Room: 202/204 Physics Bldg.

Host: Prof.Joseph Paulsen/ Contact: Yudaisy Salomón Sargentón, 315-443-5960

Sand, soils, powders, particles, grains... Granular materials are all around us, and yet we are still trying to understand them. In this talk, I will present some outstanding questions about granular material phenomena, what the challenges are in studying them, and visit recent attempts to address these questions. Specific phenomena addressed will include (but may not be limited to) the jamming transition, impact cratering, and animal / robotic locomotion.
