The flapping flight of butterfly is an example of Mobiligence in which the environment is the generated flowfield. Actually, it essentially has the same structure with other Mobiligence subjects, e.g., to emerge the flapping flight from the interaction of the nervous system, body, and environment. This research analyzes the mechanism to emerge the flapping(More)
The objective of this paper is to clarify the principle of stabilization in flapping-ofwings flight of a butterfly, which is rhythmic and cyclic motion. For this purpose, a dynamics model of a butterfly is derived by Lagrange's method, where the butterfly is considered as a rigid multi-body system. For the aerodynamic forces, a panel method is applied.(More)
