Droplets on highly deformable, elastic surfaces exhibit unusual wetting behaviour. The deformability of the substrate alters the contact angle with respect to Young’s law, while spreading dynamics is fundamentally different from that on rigid surfaces. Here we report recent experimental and theoretical progress, and highlight some of the salient features of the solid’s surface tension.

In biomechanical Imaging of tissue and in geophysics, viscoelastic models are used in order for the mathematical models: (1) to accurately predict the data; and (2) given the data, to enable the imaging functional to accurately compute biomechanical properties of tissue or physical properties of the earth. The mathematical structure of these integro-differential operators, in the time/space domain, have new properties.
