Design, Development and Operational of an Ornithopter
Girish Raj Guntumadugu
Biological flapping wing flyers achieve flight maneuverability and efficiency in low-speed flight environments that have been replicated by man-made flyers. FLAPPING BIRD design goals are to develop flyers that maintain flight in environments that biological flyers excel in which includes low speeds, hovering and urban settings. This flight is characterized by flow phenomena that are not well understood such as flow separation and vertical flow. The goal of this study is to perform a literature review about the aerodynamics of flapping flight and discuss the application to FLAPPING BIRD design. The study will evaluate the design initiatives of FLAPPING BIRD. Experimental and computational test method reviewed. Low Reynolds number aerodynamics are studied. The effects of aerofoil aeroelasticity and geometry are discussed. Then the applications of the aerodynamics to flapping motions are reviewed. Finally, operational FLAPPING BIRD designs are studied and recommendations are made to further advance the state of the art.
