Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 22 May 2023

  In this paper, the effects caused by the combination of folding angles simultaneously with changing the stiffness ratio of different parts of a folding wing are investigated. The geometrically exact fully intrinsic equations are employed to simulated the wing nonlinear dynamic behavior. The important ...  Read More

Loading Estimation of Flapping Wings under Aeroelastic Effect Using Finite Element Method

Hossein H. Shahverdi; A.S Nobari; H Bahrami Torabi

Volume 11, Issue 1 , June 2017

  The aim of this paper is to provide an aeroelastic computational tool which determines the induced wing loads during flapping flight. For this purpose, a Finite Element (FE) code based on a four-node plate bending element formulation is developed to simulate the aeroelastic behavior of flapping wings ...  Read More
