Numerical modelling of insect flight

Numerical simulation can provide important insights to the mechanics of animal locomotion. In this talk, I will present a numerical method for modeling flapping flight of insects. It is based on a Fourier pseudo-spectral method for solving the Navier-Stokes equations. Time-varying solid boundaries are modeled using the volume penalization method. Applications of this method will be presented, including such topics as the leading-edge vortex, fluid-structure interaction of flexible flapping foils, and the dynamics of takeoff.
