The dynamics is given by the serial harness process. We prove that the process delocalizes iff the mean number of visits to the set of sites where the wall is present by some random walk is infinite. In case where there is a delocalization, bounds on its speed are obtained."},"keywords":[["harness process"],["surface dynamics"],["entropic repulsion"],["random environment"],"[INFO.INFO-DS] Computer Science [cs]\/Data Structures and Algorithms [cs.DS]","[INFO.INFO-DM] Computer Science [cs]\/Discrete Mathematics [cs.DM]","[MATH.MATH-CO] Mathematics [math]\/Combinatorics [math.CO]","[INFO.INFO-CG] Computer Science [cs]\/Computational Geometry [cs.CG]"]}
