In this study, the effect of passive body deformation on flight stability during insect flapping flight is investigated numerically. We developed a flexible body dynamic solver for a three-dimensional flexible beam model and coupled it with an in-...

In very few studies it is shown that an increase in vertical force can be achieved when a flapping-wing hovers in ground effect (IGE). The body, however, has usually been neglected and its influence on three-dimensional vortex structures and conse...

Hummingbirds are promising reference for small flying robots in terms of their excellent ability to hover. Wing kinematics and shape of a hovering hummingbird were measured with four high-speed video cameras. Four types of wing models consisting o...

Penguins are wing-propelled diving birds capable of maneuvers such as rapid turns or accelerations. Previous bio-logging studies and 2-D motion analysis studies have revealed the basic swimming characteristics such as average swimming speed, dive ...

The exaggerated morphological traits that appear in either sex in the breeding season (ornaments) have long been considered to have evolved by sexual selection. Acc ordingly, these would increase the success rate of mating. However, in some cases,...

Dragonflies are acrobatic insects that perform critical tasks in flight, such as hunting, mating and navigation. Their wings undergo large, periodic, deformation on each flapping cycle. This aeroelastic response is determined by the interaction of...

Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology Annual Meeting 2018   Jan 2018   Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology
It has long been debated that morphological trait appears only in breeding season (i.e. ornament) is evolved through sexual selection.
On the other hand, there are ornament-like traits whose evolutionary reasons are difficult to be explained solel...
