Abstract:

This report investigates understanding insect flight having flapping and feathering motion in view of lift thrust generation, essential for flight control, with simultaneous measurement of velocity and forces. The present work is divided into two major portions. One being the flow visualization and PIV measurements, the other is force measurement.
