Project Description:
Discovering new designs / applications for active granular media. Granular media exist in nature (sand, soil) and industry as raw materials and consumer products, and remain a challenge in both physics and engineering. The Gilchrist Lab has developed magnetically responsive microrollers that behave as granular materials, and we are interested in studying the collective behavior of these materials, not just individual particles.
