Abstract

The current research aims towards the development of a morphing Micro-Air vehicle wing that autonomously responds to wing gusts. While the overall goal of our research is to develop flow control methods for the Micro-Air Vehicle, we are currently focusing in on a single, but very important aspect of the control problem. In order to understand the dynamics of the flow-structure interaction between the fluid and the wing, we must first understand the dynamics of the flow itself. As a first step in this approach, it is necessary to estimate the flow conditions in the immediate vicinity of the wing. We will then be able to morph the wing to a desired control state. While previous estimation procedures have proven adequate, we seek to optimize our estimations by employing a new technique.
