Wing Rotation and the Aerodynamic Basis of Insect Flight

During the translational portions of the stroke, when the wings flies through the air at a wide angle of attack, Delayed stall functions are present in the translational portions of the stroke. The diverse patterns of wing movement seen by various species of insects can be explained by a comprehensive theory incorporating both translational and rotational mechanisms.

Details of Insect Wing Design and Deformation Enhance Aerodynamic Function and Flight Efficiency

Even though it is clear that the locust wing will twist and rotate along its length, previous models have treated the wing as a flat plate, lacking any deformation. The complexity of insect wing venation directly impacts flight aerodynamics via the intermediary of wing deformation.
