One of the most dramatic properties of shear thickening fluids is their strong response to impact. An example of this can be seen in the ability of a person to run on the surface of the fluid. Understanding of this phenomena may allow us to take advantage of the unique and impressive impact resisting properties of shear thickening fluids.
