Numerical simulations of the Lighthill–Weis-Fogh mechanism are performed using a Fourier pseudo-spectral method with volume penalization. Single-winged and double-winged configurations are compared, and the vortex shedding patterns are related to the lift generated in both cases. The computations of the lift coefficient are validated against the results… CONTINUE READING
