Abstract

"The ultimate goals of this study were to use experimental data to estimate the flight capabilities of a flapping wing nano aerial vehicle (NAV), estimate the power required to provide such flight, and develop a controller approach for future use in the design of this aircraft. The experimental data is a collection of measurements of the normal force on a flapping wing taken in stationary water, and was used to develop empirical coefficient derivatives for use in the dynamic modeling of the NAV"--Abstract, page iii.
