I am having a bar and surface (made of aluminum). I need to attach some material to the end of the bar so that, if I apply any force (25 N-sideways) to bar it has to stick with the surface.
Force is applied normally to the flatter surface of the bar. I need to select a material at the end of bar so that the force applied on the bar is minimal.
What methodology should I choose to find an answer?
Aim is lowest necessary force to keep the rod intact (with a material added to rod end)
