    Abstract

    The project aims to use the multi-functional peizo-electric materials as actuators to vibrate the wings of MAV. Modeling the peizo-electric materials in the design of a flapping wing is the primary issue. Finite element analysis is performed to demonstrate the flapping action of designed wing.
