Bio-inspired Structured Adhesives: Biological Prototypes, by Lars Heepe,Longjian Xue,Stanislav N. Gorb

By Lars Heepe,Longjian Xue,Stanislav N. Gorb

This ebook bargains with the adhesion, friction and get in touch with mechanics of residing organisms. extra, it provides the extraordinary adhesive talents of the dwelling organisms which impressed the layout of novel micro- and nanostructured adhesives that may be utilized in quite a few purposes, comparable to mountain climbing robots, reusable tapes, and biomedical bandages. The applied sciences for either the synthesis and building of bio-inspired adhesive micro- and nanostructures, in addition to their functionality, are mentioned in detail.

 Representatives of numerous animal teams, similar to bugs, spiders, tree frogs, and lizards, may be able to stroll on (and hence connect to) tilted, vertical surfaces, or even ceilings in several environments. experiences have proven that their hugely really expert micro- and nanostructures, together with specific floor chemistries, are chargeable for this notable and reversible adhesion. those constructions can maximize the formation of enormous powerful touch parts on surfaces of various roughness and chemical composition less than varied environmental conditions.
