Among his discoveries are: (i) density scaling of viscoelastic properties and its relation to the steepness of the intermolecular repulsive potential; (ii) the invariance of relaxation times at various phase transitions; (iii) the non-ideality of polymer isotope mixtures and dynamic heterogeneity in miscible blends; (iv) phenomena in rubbery networks, including properties of double network rubbers and the origin of the Mullins effect; and (v) elastomeric coatings that enhance the resistance of hard substrates to impact penetration, technology applicable to military armor and civilian infrastructure protection.
