ONR MURI Workshop: "Cavitation in Soft Materials”

Wednesday, September 09, 2015 10:00am - 1:00pm

The interaction of cavitating bubbles with soft matrix materials is an emerging new topic area as 3D soft matter fabrication techniques are rapidly advancing. Because soft materials feature strong non-linearity, rate and temperature dependence in their constitutive behavior, the interactions of cavitating bubbles present complex hydro-dynamics beyond our current understanding from cavitation on hard, traditionally metallic surfaces.
