Computational modeling of unsteady aerodynamics in hummingbird flight

The flapping wings of flyers in nature such as birds, insects, and bats have recently attracted engineers' interest because of their applications in biomimetic and highly maneuverable micro air vehicles (MAVs). As unique animal flyers, hummingbirds are capable of sustained hovering, fast forwar...
