This book presents an overview of biomimetics and biologically inspired structured surfaces, and discusses various examples of biomimetics, including surfaces with roughness-induced superomniphobicity, self-cleaning, antifouling, and controlled adhesion. It focuses on the lotus effect, salvinia effect, rose petal effect, oleophobic/philic surfaces, the shark skin effect, gecko adhesion, and self-healing materials. There have been considerable advances in the emerging field of biomimetics since the first edition was completed in 2011 and second edition in 2015, and a number of commercial products are either in use or in the advanced stages of development. In this third edition, most chapters have been expanded, and new chapters have been added on superoleophilic/phobic surfaces, mechanically durable superhydrophobic surfaces, self-healing materials and fluid-drag reduction in turbulent flow.
