Bio-inspired solution for optimal adhesive performance

Antonio Papangelo
In recent years there has been a growing interest into high performance bioinspired adhesives. This communication focuses on the adhesive behavior of a rigid cylinder that indents an elastic layer coated on a rigid substrate. With the assumption of short range adhesive interactions (JKR type) the adhesive solution is obtained very easily starting from the adhesiveless one. We show that ultrastrong adhesion (up to theoretical material strength) can be reached in line contact by reducing...
