Title (EN) DEVICES AND METHODS FOR ACTIVE BIOFOULING CONTROL
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉS POUR RÉGULATION ACTIVE D'ENCRASSEMENT BIOLOGIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed herein are devices and methods for active biofouling control. According to an aspect, a device comprising a surface for contacting a biological material. The device also comprises a mechanism comprising a structure configured to change the surface between a first shape and a second shape. The change from the first shape to the second shape deforms the surface beyond a critical strain for debonding of a fouling agent from the surface when the fouling agent has bonded to the surface in the first shape.
(FR)La présente invention se rapporte à des dispositifs et à des procédés destinés à la régulation active d'encrassement biologique. Selon un aspect, un dispositif comprend une surface à mettre en contact avec un matériau biologique. Le dispositif comprend également un mécanisme comprenant une structure conçue pour faire passer la surface entre une première forme et une seconde forme. Le passage de la première forme à la seconde forme entraîne la déformation de la surface au-delà d'une contrainte critique pour détacher un agent d'encrassement de la surface lorsque l'agent d'encrassement s'est fixé à la surface dans la première forme.
