COVID-19 Resources

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel). Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this WorldCat.org search. OCLC’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus issues in their communities.

Abstract:

Many of the major challenges facing today's engineering science are related to miniaturization. In this field, vital progress can be made by studying Nature's solutions: Insects and other living creatures have solved many of the same problems during their evolution. Biological micro- and nanotribology aims to gather information about friction, adhesion and wear in such biological systems and to exploit this new knowledge, e.g. in the design of micro-electro- mechanical systems, the development of novel types of monolayer lubrication, the invention of new adhesives, and the construction of artificial joints. By employing a combination of approaches from several disciplines -- physics, engineering, tribology, biology, and materials science -- the authors elucidate the principles of a variety of biomechanical systems that rely on frictional surfaces or adhesive secretions to attach parts of the body to one another or to attach organisms to a substrate. This account provides an excellent starting point for engineers and physicists working with biological systems and for biologists studying friction and adhesion. It will also serve as a valuable introduction for graduate students entering this interdisciplinary field of research.
