Paper Abstract

This paper presents our work on modeling of micro operations. The model is based on rigid body dynamics but it also takes into consideration dominant micro world forces such as van der Waals forces and electrostatic forces, in addition to friction and rolling resistance. The operations are assumed to be performed in a dry environment. The proposed work lays ground for future development of virtual micro operation environment.
