A three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics simulation is performed for a ruby-throated hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) in hovering flight. Realistic wing kinematics are adopted in the… Continue Reading
Insect wings usually are flexible and deform significantly under the combined inertial and aerodynamic load. To study the effect of wing flexibility on both lift and thrust production in forward… Continue Reading
Abstract A quasi-steady model describing aerodynamics of hovering Ruby-throated hummingbirds is presented to study extent of the low-order model in representing the flow physics of the bird and also… Continue Reading
We present a computational study of flapping-wing aerodynamics of a calliope hummingbird (Selasphorus calliope) during fast forward flight. Three-dimensional wing kinematics were incorporated into… Continue Reading
A high-fidelity CFD model was developed previously by us to simulate aerodynamics of a hovering Ruby-throated hummingbird. In this work we utilize a quasi-steady model to represent the aerodynamics… Continue Reading
