Tenacity contours [mN mm −2] computed for capillary adhesion at varying gap widths (i.e. twice the meridional radius of meniscus curvature) and azimuthal radii of meniscus curvature (≈0.5 dp), respectively, according to Eq. 1. We assumed ϕ= 0° and γ= 71.97 mN m–1. The green patch shows the combinations of Razi and Rmer that lead to tenacities in the range of measured values [47]
