Unsteady Aerodynamics and Mechanics of Force Generation in Insect Free Flight

Ayodeji Bode-Oke
Engineers are interested in designing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for surveillance, environmental monitoring, assessment, and package delivery, etc. However, as the sizes of these vehicles become smaller, conventional fixed-wing and rotorcraft designs do not scale down well regarding aerodynamics and performance of components needed for propulsion. In the last two decades, bio-inspired flapping flight has offered an approach to bypass the challenges associated with the scalability of rotorcraft. Since the small dimensions and low flight...
