Inspired by gecko adhesion in humid environments, a modified Kendall's model is established in order to investigate the effect of relative humidity on the interfacial peeling behavior of a thin film adhering on a rigid substrate. When the humidity is less than 90%, a monolayer of water molecules adsorbed on the substrate surface induces a strong disjoining(More)
Inspired by the experimental observation that the maximum peeling force of elastic films on rigid substrates does not always emerge at the steady-state peeling stage, but sometimes at the initial one, a theoretical model is established in this paper, in which not only the effect of the film's bending stiffness on the peeling force is considered, but also(More)
Inspired by geckos' adhesion, the effect of water membrane forming due to the environmental humidity, on the adhesion between a bio-inspired nano-film and a substrate is investigated first. The disjoining pressure is considered, which results in an enhancing adhesion between the nano-film and substrate. When the thickness of water membrane increases, water(More)
