No, not the guitar-playing jamming…  In the world of material science, “jamming” is what occurs when the volume available to a bunch of grains in a granular material (such as sand) gets so small that the grains jam into each other, effectively getting stuck. Depending on the shape of the grains, the material will display different characteristics such as strength, flexibility and friction. Got it? Moving on… Heinrich Jaeger is a Professor of Physics at the University of Chicago and runs […]
