... in a highly coordinated wing-like manner in order to swim in the intermediate Reynolds number regime ( Re =10–100). The fin and shell kinematics indicate that atlantiid heteropods use unsteady hydrodynamic mechanisms such as clap-and-fling and delayed stall. Unique features of atlantiid heteropod swimming...

... mechanism. In two-winged insects, the acceleration fields produced by each wing may strongly interact via the clap-and-fling mechanism during the dorsal stroke reversal. Four-winged insects must cope with the fact that the flow over their hindwings is affected by the presence of the forewings...

...Fritz-Olaf Lehmann; Simon Pick SUMMARY Flying insects may enhance their flight force production by contralateral wing interaction during dorsal stroke reversal (`clap-and-fling'). In this study, we explored the forces and moments due to clap-and-fling at various wing tip trajectories, employing...

...-and-fling'). The results suggest that lift enhancement during clap-and-fling requires an angular separation between the two wings of no more than 10–12°. Within the limitations of the robotic apparatus, the clap-and-fling augmented total lift production by up to 17%, but depended strongly on stroke...
