To analyse the performance of mushroom-shaped fibrillar adhesive microstructure, its behaviour was studied during different stages of attachment-loading-detachment cycle. Visualizing the evolutions of real contact area of single microfibres, it is shown that the mushroom-shaped geometry of contact elements promotes fast and simple generation of reliable… CONTINUE READING
