  1. 6. Always on the wing - Fluid dynamics, flight performance and flight behavior of common swifts

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Per Henningsson; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Apus apus; aerodynamics; animal flight; kinematics; vortex wake; digital particle image velocimetry; DPIV; common swift; tracking radar; wind tunnel; migration; roosting flight;

    Abstract : The aerodynamics and kinematics behind the flight of animals are relatively unknown. Although animal flight has been studied for several hundreds of years, it is only in recent time that we have the technical abilities to study the mechanistic basis of animal flight. READ MORE

  2. 7. Flight Simulator Training Assessing the Potential

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Staffan Magnusson Nählinder; Kjell Ohlsson; Nils Dahlbäck; Erland Svensson; Ken R. Boff; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Industrial engineering and economy Manufacturing engineering and work sciences Work sciences and ergonomics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Industriell teknik och ekonomi Produktion och arbetsvetenskap Arbetsvetenskap och ergonomi;

    Abstract : Mental workload is an important concept and has been proven to be a precursor to situation awareness and operative performance. This thesis describes methods to measure mental workload through self-ratings and psychophysiological measurements. READ MORE

  3. 8. Aerodynamic performance in bat flight

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

    Author : Jonas Håkansson; [2017-05]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Leptonycteris yerbabuenae; Plecotus auritus; Glossophaga soricina; PIV; aerodynamics; wing morphology; bats; wind tunnel; animal flight;

    Abstract : Bats are the only mammals capable of flight, and they are the only animal flyers that are mammals. This thesis focuses on the latter of those facts, and investigates how bats fly, from an aerodynamic perspective. READ MORE

  4. 9. Male moth behaviour and perception in pheromone plumes

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Peter Valeur; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Grapholita molesta; Noctuidae; Lepidoptera; Tortricidae; behaviour; electrophysiology; single cell; flight tunnel; sex pheromone; wind tunnel; radar; flight; pre-exposure; mechanisms of mating disruption; Agrotis segetum; choice test;

    Abstract : Behaviour of male moths and electrophysiological responses of male pheromone-specific olfactory receptor neurones were studied in two model species, the oriental fruit moth Grapholita molesta and the turnip moth Agrotis segetum. The studies were aimed at elucidating the relative importance of different mating disruption mechanisms. READ MORE

  5. 10. Catching the invisible - aerodynamic tracks and kinematics of bat and bird flight

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Marta Wolf; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; flight; bats; birds; kinematics; vertebrates; aerodynamics;

    Abstract : This thesis is about the flight of vertebrates and the studies of different modes of flight. Flight has always fascinated mankind and this fascination gave inspiration for our attempts at flying. READ MORE
