New publication on the dynamics of elastic particles

Elastic spheres sedimenting from rest within a bounded domain show different sedimentation dynamics than comparable rigid spheres. They accelerate over a longer period of time and reach a larger final sedimentation velocity. This behavior could be interesting for biological scenarios as well as technical applications dealing with deformable particles.

Our new findings are published in Soft Matter.
