Abstract

We conclude that the elasticity of gelatin gels over a large range of gelatin concentrations can be described in a single model in which a percolation model for low helix concentrations has been combined with a model based on the deflection length (for high helix concentrations). The model gives a better view of the physics behind the gel strength of a gelatin gel over its entire concentration range and should be applicable to any other semi-flexible rod system over a large concentration range.
