List of Jamming Projects

Experiment - Forces Between 2D Emulsions Compressed Beyond the Jamming Point

Simulation - Random Close Packing of Disks and Spheres in Confined Geometries

Experiment - Jamming of three-dimensional prolate granular materials

  • Studied the phase behavior of the force needed to pull a small object through a pile of rods, and the packing fraction dependence on aspect ratio. (Click here for website) (Publication)
