Bionic Mechanics for Soft Aircraft

Insects and other flying experts in nature have the advantages of small size, good maneuverability and high flight energy efficiency. The flight mechanism of insects may be used for reference in aerodynamic performance design of new aircraft. From the point of view of bionics, we hope to understand how insects make use of the "novel" aerodynamic principle. Our laboratory will pay special attention to the unsteady high lift mechanism of flapping-wing flight, the energy consumption during hovering and forward flight, and the aeroelasticity of flexible structures, so as totheoretical and experimental support for aerodynamic design of aerospace flexible structures.
