Abstract

In the paper, a novel numerical method is present to numerically investigate life force generation mechanisms of 3D dragonfly wing during hovering motions. The dynamic mesh which descripts the motion of 3D wing and gird change in inner computational domain is generated by an ALE model we developed. Then the mesh is transferred at each time step into ANSYS CFX using Junction Box Routine. The simulation results show that a high lift force generated by implementing one specified advanced flapping action during hovering motion in which the translation time period of downstroke is shortened.
