A team of mathematicians has crossed the wing's fastest appearance: this discovery offers better methods for collecting water energy and improving air velocity.
Works, which appears in the journal Procedure of the Royal SocietyIt is based on a technique that imitates evolutionary biology, which gives it the best pace.
"We can simulate biological evolution in the laboratory by creating a westerly population of different shapes to achieve the desired goal to be competitive, in this case, speed, and then the wings have the" best breed. "Better, says Leif Ristroph, Mathematical University of New York Assistant Professor of the Curriculum of the Higher Institute of Sciences and senior paper writer.
For these determinations, researchers have conducted some experiments in the NYU Applied Math Lab. Here, 3-D printed wings created mechanically weakened and counteracted, through a "breeding" evolution of the winners or a genome algorithm, to make flyers faster.
To imitate this growth process, researchers began to experiment with 10 different winged forms, which measured the speed of propulsion. The algorithm found the pair of the wings the fastest ("parents") and combined their attributes to create a faster, faster "printed" 3-D print. This process was repeated to create wings of wings in the wake of generations from generation to generation.
"The fastest survival of the process" is automatically the fastest wing that automatically looks like the wing, which efficiently manages the flow of flows, "explains Ristrophe." In addition to exploring various forms of our analysis, we also identified specific aspects that were the main responsible for the fastest performance of the wings ".
Their results have shown that the slimmer shape of the wing is due to the edge of the end of the soap veneer, to help generate powerful spurious or swirling flows. The wing leaves a path of these eddies, because it pushes forward.
"As a case study and a proof of concept, we see work with much wider classes with complex engineering problems, especially those with flux objects, such as rationalizing a form structure," says Ristroph. "We believe this, for example, to optimize the shape of a waves energy wave structure."
