Characterizing Strain Localization and Dynamic Instabilities in Soft Materials
February 21 @ 11:00 am - 11:50 am
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.
