Natural flyers and man-made MAVs generally use multiple flapping wing configurations. To understand the aerodynamic performance, three different flapping configurations: single wing, tandem wings, and biplane wings are numerically simulated by a URANS solver coupled with an overset grid method. Moreover, effect of kinematics including oscillating frequency, angle of attack and wing to tail distance are detailed investigated. Results show that the wing-tail interaction significantly benefits thedoi:10.21595/jve.2016.16568 fatcat:cfpr7tnxajabzhrq3xefzfi7pe
