Simulation of flow patterns generated by the hydromedusa Aequorea victoria using an arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian formulation (Science Direct, 2009-03-31)A new geometrically conservative arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian (ALE) formulation is presented for the moving boundary problems in the swirl-free cylindrical coordinates. The governing equations are multiplied with the ...
(2008-10-10)In this work, we conduct a free-flight test to explore the climbing motion of a butterfly species (Pieris rapae crucivora) and find its excellent flapping skills in this maneuver. In regular flight, the downstroke of wing ...
