... wing kinematics aerodynamics NavierStokes simulation Hovering is an important type of flight of insects. Most hovering insects flap their wings in a horizontal plane, called `normal hovering' ( Weis-Fogh, 1973 ). But some of the best hoverers (e.g. true hoverflies and dragonflies who can...

... kinematics measurement aerodynamics NavierStokes simulation To understand the aerodynamics, energetics and control of insect flight, it is necessary to know the time history of the aerodynamic forces and moments produced by the flapping wings. It is difficult, even impossible, to directly measure...
