Midwest Mechanics Seminar
The Mechanics of the Surfactant-Driven Fracture of Particle Rafts and the Inﬂuence of Surface Tension
Friday, September 29, 2017
1610 Engineering Hall
John E. Dolbow, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Duke University, will describe a new continuum-based model and simulations that account for the interplay between the pressure exerted by a spreading surfactant and the elastic response of the praft, including the fracture toughness and exciting new research in this area.
