Prospects for preventing insect adhesion to leading edges of aircraft

R. Baier


The ultimate solutions to the plaguing problem of insect adhesion to the leading edges of aircraft may come as spinoff technology from the biomedical field, where similar problems have been encountered and real solutions already are being achieved. In searching for ways to make biological materials hold more permanently to non-biological implants, biomedical scientists are beginning to learn what makes biological and non-biological materials adhere and what can prevent them from doing so.
