The flapping flight dynamics of insects, birds and bats have long been of interest to aeronautical engineers. From Clément Ader’s pioneering 19th-century flying machines to the present-day Bat Bot and BionicFlyingFox, aircraft design has been influenced by bats for more than 130 years. Now, a comprehensive 3D computer model of bat wing flapping flight that may enable the creation of nimbler, […]
