  • New approach to explaining soft material flow may yield way to new materials, disaster prediction

    A new study from engineers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign uses simple experiments to explain how a better understanding of flowing motion of soft materials will help design new materials and could help predict some natural disasters.
