Associate Professor Ken Kamrin’s model of granular material flow could impact how we interact with everything from sand and soil to pills and industrial materials.
Associate Professor Ken Kamrin has developed a model that predicts how a cornstarch-water mixture turns from liquid to solid and back. The model could predict how mixtures behave in military and industrial applications.
By using toy models and scaling laws, Associate Professor Ken Karmin can predict how wheels on trucks, tanks, and even Mars rovers move through sand.
