Abstract

This paper presents the structural design assessment of a bio-inspired artificial wing for flapping wing micro air vehicle based on pigeon bird. Bio-inspired ornithopters are unable to implement themselves in surveillance environment due to lack of basic bio-mimetics during conceptual and design phase. The idea of this research is to bridge this gap through assessment of structural parameters including weight, moment of inertia and feather placement leading to development of an artificial wing using actual feathers of pigeon bird and glass fiber-epoxy composite. The camber and wing structure is assessed through the fabrication of mold which is further utilized to define the shape of artificial wing. Future work includes the performance assessment of the developed wing for lift and thrust generation in an actual prototype of flapping type micro air vehicle.
