The effect of kinematics on flapping wing performance
Keywords and Phrases
"The objective of this work was to investigate low Reynolds number (~6,000) aerodynamics of a three-dimensional elliptical acrylic wing (~150mm x 50mm) in cyclic flapping and pitching motion by experimentally testing the effects on performance of varying wing kinematics"--Abstract, page iii.
