Title: Shear hardening in starch solutions

Description: Concentrated starch solutions (typically 50%) exhibit strong shear hardening properties: they almost turn into solid when they are forced to flow. A long liquid filament is however formed when a drop of such a liquid drips from a pipette. The filament finally breaks into smaller satellite droplets.
