The Institute for Aerospace Research of the National Research Council Canada (NRCIAR) is carrying out research work to develop and validate efficient experimental models and numerical algorithms for unsteady low-Reynolds-number flow solvers, as well as to investigate the aeromechanical aspects of unsteady insect-like flapping wings for nano-air vehicles (NAV). This paper reports on the implementation of some special features used for simulating complex flapping-wing aerodynamics, such as grid… CONTINUE READING
