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

By Lars Heepe,Longjian Xue,Stanislav N. Gorb

This e-book bargains with the adhesion, friction and phone mechanics of dwelling organisms. additional, it offers the amazing adhesive talents of the residing organisms which impressed the layout of novel micro- and nanostructured adhesives that may be utilized in a number of functions, comparable to mountaineering robots, reusable tapes, and biomedical bandages. The applied sciences for either the synthesis and development of bio-inspired adhesive micro- and nanostructures, in addition to their functionality, are mentioned in detail.

 Representatives of a number of animal teams, similar to bugs, spiders, tree frogs, and lizards, may be able to stroll on (and for this reason connect to) tilted, vertical surfaces, or even ceilings in several environments. reviews have verified that their hugely really good micro- and nanostructures, together with specific floor chemistries, are answerable for this outstanding and reversible adhesion. those buildings can maximize the formation of enormous potent touch parts on surfaces of various roughness and chemical composition lower than varied environmental conditions.
