  • This theoretical paper discusses recent advances in the fluid dynamics of insect and micro air vehicle (MAV) flight and considers theoretical analyses necessary for their future development. The main purpose is to propose a new conceptual framework and, within this framework, two analytic approaches to aerodynamic modelling of an insect–like flapping wing in hover in the context of MAVs. The motion involved is periodic and is composed of two half–cycles (downstroke and upstroke) which, in hover… CONTINUE READING
