We study experimentally the liquid-solid transition in a soft-jammed system and focus on its aging in the solid regime. We investigate the impact of temperature, density, and load changes on the material behavior. We show that all elastic modulus versus time curves fall on a single master curve when rescaled by an appropriate factor function of the density, the temperature, the load, and the time elapsed since preshear. This allows us to distinguish the effect of temperature and density on the… CONTINUE READING
