Michael D. Bartlett, Andrew B. Croll and Alfred J. Crosby Designing Bio-Inspired Adhesives for Shear Loading: From Simple Structures to Complex Patterns Advanced Functional Materials 22
Design criteria for bio-inspired adhesives under shear loading is presented. Force capacity predictions of common geometric control parameters such as thickness, aspect ratio, and contact area are experimentally confirmed. This understanding is extended to over 25 simple and complex adhesive patterns. The force capacity of the various attachment features is described with a simple scaling parameter.
