One possibility to adjust material properties to a specific need is to embed units of one substance into a matrix of another substance. Even materials that are readily tunable during operation can be generated in this way. In (visco)elastic substances, both the matrix material as well as the inclusions and/or their immediate environment can be dynamically deformed. If the typical dynamic response time of the inclusions and their surroundings approach the macroscopic response time, their… Expand

Superelastic stress-strain behavior in ferrogels with different types of magneto-elastic coupling.
This work extends the analysis to ferrogels where restoring torques by the surrounding matrix hinder rotations towards a magnetically favored configuration, and demonstrates that these systems still feature a superelastic regime. Expand
