Force generation and wing deformation characteristics of a flapping-wing micro air vehicle 'DelFly II' in hovering flight
Perçin, Mustafa; de Croon, G. C. H. E.; Remes, B. (IOP Publishing, 2016-06-01)
The study investigates the aerodynamic performance and the relation between wing deformation and unsteady force generation of a flapping-wing micro air vehicle in hovering flight configuration. Different experiments were performed where fluid forces were acquired with a force sensor, while the three-dimensional wing deformation was measured with a stereo-vision system. In these measurements, time-resolved power consumption and flapping-wing kinematics were also obtained under both in-air and in-vacuum condi...

Force and motion trajectory tracking control of flexible joint robots
Ider, SK (2000-03-01)
An inverse dynamics control algorithm for constrained flexible-joint robots is developed. It is shown that in a flexible-joint robot, the acceleration level inverse dynamic equations are singular because the control torques do not have an instantaneous effect on the end-effector contact forces and accelerations, due to the elastic media. Implicit numerical integration methods that account for the higher order derivative information are utilized for solving the singular set of differential equations. Joint s...
Drag Analysis of a Supersonic Fighter Aircraft
Akgün, Osman; Golcuk, Ali İhsan; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda; Kaynak, Ünver (null; 2016-07-15)
For aircraft design, drag optimization is very important for having better flight performance and less fuel consumption. In this study, drag effects of fuselage, wing and tail section are separately analyzed using a generic F-16 fighter aircraft model in ANSYS Fluent CFD tool with polyhedral mesh. Pressure drag and viscous drag effects are shown on different section of the aircraft as fuselage, wing, vertical tail and horizontal tail. Drag values are presented on subsonic, transonic and supersonic flights.
Flow characteristics of translating flexible wings at low reynolds numbers
Yazdanpanah, Mahdi; Perçin, Mustafa; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2019)
This study experimentally investigates the flow field around surging-translating wings that are started from rest and compares the flow field characteristics with that of surging-revolving wings. Three wings with different level of chordwise flexural stiffness (i.e., highly flexible, moderately flexible and rigid) were studied. The experiments were performed in an octagonal water tank at the Reynold number of 7360 based on the terminal velocity of 0.08 m/s, and the wing chord length of 92 mm. Two-dimensiona...
