Outcome of a typical pull experiment on a cubical sample agglomerate. Left: since the adhesion between particle-wall contacts is stronger than between particles, the uppermost layer of particles is ripped off when pulling the plates away from each other. Right: adhesion between particles that are close to one of the plates has been artificially increased. The red dotted line indicates where the additional gluing effect sets in.
