Mechanics of Flapping Wing of Rhomborrhina Japonica
39th AIAA Fluid Dynamics Conference
Investigation of unsteady flying insects is focused on low Reynolds number effect and aerodynamic properties. Interaction between flapping insect-wing and the air flow became one of important research field for development of micro air vehicle. The aim of the present work is to investigate the flow behavior of flapping wings of scarab beetle. The flapping motion and flow around wing are visualized with smoke-wire method and PIV. Tethered flight of the scarab beetle shows the motion with elasticdoi:10.2514/6.2009-4190 fatcat:5r7tcuipcfedtkfcgounb24xia
