Have you noticed cobwebs attached to the ceiling of your house? Or cobwebs that you find on the home page?

Process of Making Nets

Perhaps, at first glance it seems ordinary and nothing special, even sometimes the presence of spider webs in the house, make us upset because it makes the house dirty and grubby. However, you seem to know so much inspiration that can be learned from a spider's web?
Cobwebs that serves as a trap prey and breeding grounds created by a "tool" which is located at the tail end of a spider. Actually the "tool" is a small cone-shaped channel whose number varies between 1 - 4 pairs. Through the hole thread nets are made in the form of nodes issued as fine threads.
In making its web, the spider will throw the yarn spun into the air. So that the air will bring the end of the string attached to the other place. After that, construction work cobwebs began. At first, strong and taut thread will be drawn from the center point outwards to prepare the framework of webs with many spokes. Then added also used as a foothold thread yarn spinning spiral. And manufacture of nets will be completed after the yarn twisted spiral approaching the middle. The process of making cobwebs could spend in one to two hours.

The Substances of Cobwebs

Many researchers are intrigued by the protein substances contained in Spider webs. Prowess in ensnare prey and perfection of manufacture exceptional construction, makes a lot of intense research to find out the answer. From various studies conducted, apparently we can know that the thread webs issued spider is a material consisting of a mixture of crystalline and another portion is derived from an elastic material. And every single molecule of cobwebs has combined both the mix.
According to David Kaplan, professor of biomedical engineering at Tufts University, protein substance into a spider web material is stored in a structure such as a soap called pseudomicelle; these structures create shaped protein substances such as gelatin while in the gland. The function of the actual pseudomicelle to keep the proteins do not crystallize too fast until the time is right for spinning.
If the time is right and the viscosity of the protein substance thats fitting, then pseudomicelle it will easily turn into strong fibers when issued as a net. In this process, the water content is very necessary and very important, because the crystalline is too early can cause a blockage in the system making nets in the spider's body. Cobwebs were finally been completed have elastic mechanical bond. If you're receiving a load, a mechanical bond cobwebs will be released, but if the burden was gone then form the mechanical bond will be back to normal.

The Inspiration & Experiment of

Cobwebs are truly special. Many wonders that are beneficial to human beings produced by fine threads of the spider are artificial. Not a few scientists who are interested in researching and utilizing the power of spider webs for various needs, such as bullet-proof vest, to rigging combat equipment.
It is actually motivated by research scientists who claim that spider silk is stronger than steel fibers of the same thickness. In fact, the steel itself is the most powerful materials that are often used by humans. In another study revealed also that the spider thread has edgy style of 150,000 kg / m2. So if there is a rope with a diameter of 30 cm is made of spider thread, then the thread will be able to withstand the load of 150 cars. Awesome creature of GOD's creation.!
In fact, a Physicist named Huby Nolwenn of the Institut de Physique de Rennes in France, managed to find the fact that light can propagate in cobwebs Rapidly spreading like light through an optical fiber. With that discovery, Huby optimistic someday spider web can serve as an optical fiber and can be used in the medical field. Even more amazingly again, cobwebs easily recycled so as to reduce the potential for electronic waste. For more information go and find here!
In further developments, the scientists themselves are no longer reluctant to use spider silk as a model of made of Kevlar or materials for bulletproof jacket. The bullet that has a speed of 150 m / sec was Able to rip and destroy anything except that penetrate Kevlar. However, apparently spider thread actually thinner than a piece of human hair and lighter than cotton was 10 times more powerful than existing Kevlar material.

Cobwebs Application in Modern Architecture

In the field of architecture also inspired a lot of cobwebs. Munich Olympic Stadium and Jeddah International Airport one of them. Both are often cited as examples of modern architecture that mimics the cobwebs. In addition, there is also an underwater housing project inspired by spider freshwater. Inspirations are inspired from the cobwebs that have assessed the level of aesthetics, energy-saving nature and level of practicality perfect in nature. Following a video by MaxAloysius13 about a small Australian species of freshwater spider crab.

Naturally, the spider did not learn or have to follow special training in their own webs. The ability of the spider is a gift given by Lord since they were born. The Lord deliberately created all things in this earth as evidence that all living things and all its contents are under His authority. We must as a people to think and be obedient to the Creator.

A quote:
"He is ALLAH, your LORD. There is no GOD but Him, the Creator of all things. So worship Him. He is responsible for everything. "(Koran, Surat Al-An'am: p. 102).

I have often sat beside a spider web and have been amazed at the spiders work. Your article brings this to life...Well done.

Wonderful poem my friend and great information, cow webs were used in Mexico once when we cut to heal our cuts!

Yes, that's right and I have a plan to writing about which used in Mexico in the days coming. Thanks a lot for the idea my dear friend Fern!.

is only spiderwebs could be used in humans need, nobody would crush spiders.

No, it isn't but a little bit only such as in Modern Architecture. Thanks for a good comment.
