Even if an event is not yet labeled as canceled, it's likely to be canceled, postponed or modified to online only, from now through June 30. Please check with organizers before attending.

Characterizing Strain Localization and Dynamic Instabilities in Soft Materials

The Mechanics Seminar Series

Event Details

Friday, February 21, 2020
11-11:50 a.m.
Dr. Jin Yang, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will present our recent research progress in experimentally characterizing the
mechanical properties of soft materials from low to ultra-high strain-rates and building theoretical
models of the dynamic behavior for these highly nonlinear soft viscoelastic materials based on
continuum mechanics, including associated dynamic instability criteria.
