hydrogen bonds in these helices contributes to the energy required to extend the
silks in their postyield extensions to failure. The GPGXX motifs function in a
similar manner, but they do not involve the formation of stable helical structures.

Mechanical Design of Structural Materials in Animals explores the principles underlying how molecules interact to produce the functional attributes of biological materials: their strength and stiffness, ability to absorb and store energy, and ability to resist the fatigue that accrues through a lifetime of physical insults. These attributes play a central role in determining the size and shape of animals, the ways in which they can move, and how they interact with their environment. By showing how structural materials have been designed by evolution, John Gosline sheds important light on how animals work. Gosline elucidates the pertinent theories for how molecules are arranged into macromolecular structures and how those structures are then built up into whole organisms. In particular, Gosline develops the theory of discontinuous, fiber-reinforced composites, which he employs in a grand synthesis to explain the properties of everything from the body wall of sea anemones to spiders' silks and insect cuticles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. Although the theories are examined in depth, Gosline's elegant discussion makes them accessible to anyone with an interest in the mechanics of life. Focusing on the materials from which animals are constructed, this book answers fundamental questions about mechanical properties in nature.
It follows that both shear and transverse tensile strength of the interface will be
significant factors . Bonding may be mechanical , physical and / or chemical in
nature . Mechanical bonding arises from physical asperities on the fiber surface ...

If the evaporant and substrate are compatible , covalent types of bonds can be
formed . If the evaporant is reactive with the substrate , chemical types of bonds
can be obtained . The typical evaporative coating bond is mechanical in nature .
