Quote:So-called non-Newtonian fluids are the stars of high school science demonstrations. In one example, an ooey-gooey batter made from corn starch and water oozes like a liquid when moved slowly. But punch it, or run across a giant puddle of it, and it becomes stiff like a solid. Pour it on top of a speaker cone, and the vibrations cause the fluid to stiffen and form strange tendril-like shapes. Now, a group of college students has figured out a new use for the strange stuff: filler for potholes.Read more: news.sciencemag.org
What an innovative idea, probably a great cost effective temporary solution until they can fill it with asphalt. Takes no time to apply as is demonstrated in the video.
My question is how does it behave if a car has to stop on it?
