Abstract [en]

The interest for Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles (FWMAV) is growing. With this comes a need for future users to test and evaluate these vehicles with simulations. This study presents a first iteration of an implementation of a FWMAV in FLAMES Simulation Framework. An aerodynamic model based on the widely used quasi-steady blade element approach is presented and a first linearised version is implemented in FLAMES. The simulation model is capable of both manual and autonomous flight. With the first person view a pilot can investigate buildings and objects. The study gives an idea of how FLAMES can be used for this type of simulations. FLAMES provides a good environment for testing the vehicle both individually and in a context with other units.
