Studying the Complex Flow Physics of Dragonfly Flight

Contributed by Dr. Haibo Dong Manager, Wright State University For the first time in history, researchers have been able to create a detailed 3D numerical simulation of a dragonfly in free flight. On the left is a high-speed movie of a dragonfly taking off. The black spots on the wing are 0.5mm ink markers that help track exact wing positions when creating the 3D shapes using films shot from different […]
