Download or read book entitled Modern Flexible Multi-Body Dynamics Modeling Methodology for Flapping Wing Vehicles by author: Cornelia Altenbuchner which was release on 15 September 2017 and published by Academic Press with total page 198 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Modern Flexible Multi-Body Dynamics Modeling Methodology for Flapping Wing Vehicles presents research on the implementation of a flexible multi-body dynamic representation of a flapping wing ornithopter that considers aero-elasticity. This effort brings advances in the understanding of flapping wing flight physics and dynamics that ultimately leads to an improvement in the performance of such flight vehicles, thus reaching their high performance potential. In using this model, it is necessary to reduce body accelerations and forces of an ornithopter vehicle, as well as to improve the aerodynamic performance and enhance flight kinematics and forces which are the design optimization objectives. This book is a useful reference for postgraduates in mechanical engineering and related areas, as well as researchers in the field of multibody dynamics. Uses Lagrange equations of motion in terms of a generalized coordinate vector of the rigid and flexible bodies in order to model the flexible multi-body system Provides flight verification data and flight physics of highly flexible ornithoptic vehicles Includes an online companion site with files/codes used in application examples
