General principles of legged locomotion
propulsion: thrust against the substrate in the direction of motion,
adhesion to allow anchorage for propulsive thrust,
adhesion to resist non-propulsive forces tending to detach the mobile from the substrate,
support to resist any forces tending to press the mobile against the substrate.
