This report presents a study of a novel mechanism microvortices to generate lift towards application in micro air vehicle MAV. The mechanism of vortex generation considered is in-plane oscillation of a flat plate with suitable structure on the plates top surface. Methodologically, experimental approach is first commenced followed by compution to study a wide range of parameter space. The microdevice leverages on Lorentz force to drive the suspended MEMs-based microplate to in-plane resonance.
