About this Item

118 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.2in.The purpose of this research was to develop testing methods capable of analyzing the performance of a miniature flapping-winng mechanism that can later be adapted for the development a Biomimetric flapping-wing micro vehicle (MAV). Three small scale flapping mechanisms capable of single plane flapping, flapping with active pitch control, and flappingpitch with out-of-plane movement were designed using SolidWorks. The flapping mechanism was mounted on a supported by air bearings, and thrust was measured for a variety of conditions. The testing was conducted using wings composed of fiber and Mylar in four different size configurations, with flapping speeds ranging from 3. 5 - 15Hertz. The thrust was measured using anaxially mounted 50 gram load cell which resulted in an accuracy of 0. 1 gram. The flapping mechanism was then mounted on a 6-component force balance to measure dynamic loading, which demonstrated the ability to gather time-accurate data within a single flapping stroke at speeds as high as 15Hz. High speed cameras were also used for capturing images of how the structure of the wing changed at various testing conditions. Overall this research successfully demonstrated testing procedures that can be utilized in developing scale flapping-wing micro air vehicles. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781288331666

About this title

Synopsis:

The purpose of this research was to develop testing methods capable of analyzing the performance of a miniature flapping-winng mechanism that can later be adapted for the development a Biomimetric flapping-wing micro vehicle (MAV). Three small scale flapping mechanisms capable of single plane flapping,flapping with active pitch control, and flapping/pitch with out-of-plane movement were designed using SolidWorks. The flapping mechanism was mounted on a supported by air bearings, and thrust was measured for a variety of conditions. The testing was conducted using wings composed of fiber and Mylar in four different size configurations, with flapping speeds ranging from 3.5 - 15Hertz. The thrust was measured using anaxially mounted 50 gram load cell which resulted in an accuracy of + 0.1 gram. The flapping mechanism was then mounted on a 6-component force balance to measure dynamic loading, which demonstrated the ability to gather time-accurate data within a single flapping stroke at speeds as high as 15Hz. High speed cameras were also used for capturing images of how the structure of the wing changed at various testing conditions. Overall this research successfully demonstrated testing procedures that can be utilized in developing scale flapping-wing micro air vehicles.
