Fluidization of yield stress materials through active and activated local events

In this talk I will discuss the possible fluidization mecanisms of yield stress materials through either locally active dynamics, like cell division in tissues [1,2] or vibration induced local plasticity like in externally driven granular materials [3]. The long range elastic response to these events lead to a non-trivial fluidization of the material, that can be captured in particle-based simulations and rationalized by using mesoscopic descriptions. This allows to understand the underlying dynamics and to reproduce the resulting non-linear rheological behaviours.
