Rolling detachment of micro particles in the presence of electrostatic and capillary forces based on the maximum adhesion resistance was studied. The effective thermodynamic work of adhesion including the effects of electrostatic and capillary forces was used in the analysis. The JKR and DMT models for elastic interface deformations and the Maugis-Pollock model for the plastic deformation were extended to include the effect of electrostatic and capillary forces. Under turbulent flow conditions, the turbulence burst model was used to evaluate the airflow velocity near the substrate. The critical shear velocities for removal of particles of different sizes were evaluated and the results were compared with those without electrostatic and capillary forces. It shows that the capillary forces significantly increases the critical shear velocities for particles of all sizes, while the electrostatic forces only have major effects on large particles. The model predictions were compared with the available experimental data and good agreement was observed.
