    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.49, No.2, pp. 113-142, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.049.113

    Abstract We present a 2D incompressible Navier-Stokes numerical simulation of a virtual model of an elliptic, or flat plate, foil in hovering flight configuration. Computations obtained with a general purpose solver were validated against reference data on forward flapping flight, normal or dragonfly hovering. The moving mesh technique allows airfoil translation and angular mesh movement accompaining the airfoil stroke motion. Close to the ground the mesh deforms to occupy the narrow computational domain formed between the airfoil and the ground. Computations have been carried out for some parameters, including the distances h between the foil center and… More >
