Distinguishing deformation mechanisms in elastocapillary experiments

30 Aug 2019 Chen Shih-Yuan Bardall Aaron Shearer Michael Daniels Karen E.

Soft materials are known to deform due to a variety of mechanisms, including capillarity, buoyancy, and swelling. In this paper, we present experiments on polyvinylsiloxane gel threads partially-immersed in three liquids with different solubility, wettability, and swellability... (read more)
