Renewable Electric Power from the Equine Treadmill: An Evaluation of the Potential

Article history: Received: 23 August, 2020 Accepted: 29 September, 2020 Online: 20 October, 2020 Horse power – the prime mover that has been there with humans for ages; chiefly used for

Martensitic organic crystals as soft actuators† †Electronic supplementary information (ESI) available: Experimental details and characterization data. CCDC 1936559. For ESI and crystallographic data in CIF or other electronic format see DOI: 10.1039/c9sc02444a

Being capable of rapid and complete structure switching, the martensitic phase transitions in molecular crystals are thought to hold a tremendous potential as thermally driven organic actuators.

EFFECTS OF OPERATING FREQUENCY AND TEMPERATURE ON MECHANICAL POWER OUTPUT FROM MOTH FLIGHT MUSCLE

In the tobacco hawkmoth there is a good correspondence between the conditions of temperature and cycle frequency that produce maximal mechanical power output in the muscle preparation and the thoracic temperature and wing beat frequency observed during hovering flight.

The Prudent Parent: Energetic Adjustments in Avian Breeding 1)

Energetics of reproduction in birds is reviewed, and observations of parent starlings confronted with manipulated brood size suggest a limit on the time that can be devoted to energetically extravagant flight activity, rather than a shortage of absolute time.

Sustained metabolic scope.

Analyzing 37 species and finding that metabolic rates higher than 7 times RMR apparently cannot be sustained indefinitely poses several questions: whether the proximate physiological causes of metabolic ceilings reside in the digestive tract's ability to process food or in each tissue's metabolic capacity.

Limitations on Animal Flight Performance

Flight performance seems to change systematically with body size: small animals can hover and fly over a wide range of speeds, but large birds taxi for takeoff and then fly over a narrow speed range.
