Studies about flapping wing aerodynamic performance have been only concentrated on motion under calm and clear atmospheric conditions. Small atmospheric disturbance such as gust wind could lead to flapping MAV (Micro Aerial Vehicle) great damage. In this study, using numerical method and employ FLUENT software as the flow solver, the motions of flapping wing are simplified and combined with the dynamic mesh technique. Thus we could calculate the 2-D flapping wing aerodynamic parameters such as… CONTINUE READING
