Abstract

This chapter discusses the impact of absence of a holistic surface-design methodology in the technological realm. The authors show that manifesting designs that merge function, form, and topography to achieve lean performance is currently a bottleneck in the field of tribology. The presented material shows that merging function and topography, while not matured within the realm of manmade surfaces, is advanced in natural designs, especially within the scaled reptiles (Squamata). This prompts many engineers to scour biological analogues for design alternatives. However, the problem of evaluating the viability of a natural surface and judging its suitability for a technological application is frequently encountered. The chapter adresses this problem through a detailed case study that involves extracting metrological information for snakes that engage in rectilinear locomotion.
