- The pinch-off behavior of yield stress fluids is investigated using droplet and liquid-bridge breakup experiments. Contrary to expectations, the neck thinning behavior depends strongly on the way the breakup experiment is carried out. This nonuniversal behavior can be explained through an analysis of the thinning dynamics as well as the shapes of the fluid necks. Recent nonlocal models for the rheology of yield stress fluids are found to be compatible with the results presented.
