Abstract

The butterfly is an insect highly evolved to perform various flight regimes. From gliding flight to manoeuvers involving spontaneous changes in direction, the butterfly is considered a marvel of aerodynamic evolution. Recent demand in the development of microaerial vehicles (MAVs) has led scientists to study these creatures in greater depth to get a better understanding of the lift generating mechanisms adopted by them. This study focuses on the evaluation of gliding performance of the Monarch butterfly. A CAD model of a Monarch butterfly wing is modelled using CATIA, taking into account only a single wing of wingspan 53.381 mm which is used to simulate the gliding motion of the butterfly. The gliding performance analysis suggests that a maximum aerodynamic coefficient of 3.597 is achieved for the current wing orientation at 8° AoA.
