State of The Art: Prior and Current Efforts
Fundamental Issues and Challenges
― Sample CFD Dynamic Mesh Model for Dynamic Wing
―Equations of Motion and Free Body Diagrams
― Static and Dynamic Analysis
― Control Design
― Non-linear Issues
Summary and Conclusions
Dynamic wing vehicles represent a leap in micro and nano-scale aerial vehicle
design due to their size, agility and ability to carry small payloads such as
surveillance equipment
Vehicles that have hovering capabilities and can move at high velocity to a
target efficiently are more desirable than the separate class vehicles such as
slow moving 4-rotor MAV’s and a flapping bird MAV’s that requires foreword
velocity to remain aloft
Emphasis: Omnithopter, Capabilities include high foreword velocity and hover
Issue: Model stabilities in both hover and foreword flight. Requires
development of a suitable control system. PID controls for attitude stability are
most crucial. Torque from the rotor system needs to be available for forward
State of The Art
State of the Art: Programs
1996-2000 – DARPA funding of Micro Air Vehicles
◦ DARPA Program initiative - develop and test technologies for
mission capable flight system
◦ Only requirement –dimension of vehicle should not exceed
15 cm
2004 – 2005 – DARPA’s Goals
◦ integrate MAV technologies into militarily back packable
systems for soldier, marine, and special-forces missions.
2009 – AeroVironment
◦ NAV program – Nano hummingbird, while not especially
small, was a huge breakthrough in MAV ornithopter research
because of its gyroscopically stabilized flight without any tail
◦ 19 gram, 16cm wing span
◦ “will stretch our understanding of flight at these small sizes
and require novel technology development.” Dr. Todd Hylton,
DARPA program manager.
2012 – The Netherlands-Delft University of Technology
◦ Delfly II. 16 gram, 28 cm wing span
2012 – ASU Omnithopter- Arizona State University
◦ Omnithopter. 90 gram, 39 cm wing span

Dynamic Mesh
Dynamic mesh of the oscillating cylinder moving up and down
• Amplitude ratio of 0.5
• Amplitude ratio = ymax/D,
• D is the diamter = 1, ymax = maximum displacement of the simple harmonic crossflow oscillation = 0.5
• Frequencies, fo, approximately 0.2.
• F is the frequency ratio, F= fo/fv
• fv is the fixed-cylinder vortex shedding frequency
• fo is the frequency of the cylinder cross-flow oscillation
