Aerodynamic characteristics of hoverflies during hovering flight

Abstract:

The aerodynamic characteristics of model hoverflies during hovering flight are studied with a three-dimensional sharp-interface immersed boundary method. The wing is modelled as a rectangular generic wing to test the effects of an accessory flap called the alula, which is located at the wing root. Simulations are conducted in two groups: One group of simulations are conducted to determine the equilibrium kinematics of the wings with and without alula; the other group of simulations are conduc...
