Sammanfattning : This thesis is about the flight of vertebrates and the studies of different modes of flight. Flight has always fascinated mankind and this fascination gave inspiration for our attempts at flying. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : I share my fascination of bird flight with many others, and here I summarise my thesis on the subject. This thesis emphasises the mechanics of bird flight by focusing on flight mechanics, wake dynamics and flight performance. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The efficiency and performance of a flying animal is directly related to the aerodynamics around its body and flapping wings. Here, I have developed methods for quantifying the wake dynamics around a flying animal. The results are used to estimate the aerodynamic performance of flapping flight. LÄS MER
