Abstract

This study used numerical and experimental approaches to investigate the role played by the clap-and-fling mechanism Tagged amsterdam in enhancing force generation in hovering insect-like two-winged flapping-wing micro air vehicle (FW-MAV). The flapping mechanism was designed to symmetrically flap wings at a high flapping amplitude of approximately 192°.
