...-sensitive friction pads. Different attachment microstructures on the euplantulae reveal an adaptation of smooth euplantulae to smooth surfaces and nubby eupantulae to a broader range of surface roughness. However, how different attachment pads and claws work in concert and how strong the contribution...

...Victor Manuel Ortega-Jimenez; Lisa von Rabenau; Robert Dudley ABSTRACT Surface roughness is a ubiquitous phenomenon in both oceanic and terrestrial waters. For insects that live at the air–water interface, such as water striders, non-linear and multi-scale perturbations produce dynamic surface...

... that the ability of cockroach adhesive pads to compensate for surface roughness increases when the pads are pulled toward the body. Following shear, the pads made full contact on pillar arrays with a smaller spacing than before the shear movement. The median effective compliance parameter (estimated from...

... the attachment conditions for benthic organisms. In this study, we investigate the influence of fouling and surface roughness on the adhesive strength of northern clingfish, Gobiesox maeandricus . We measured clingfish tenacity on unfouled and fouled substrates over four surface roughnesses. We exposed surfaces...
