Abstract

While studying about aerodynamics or aeronautical engineering first thing which comes to our mind is how to fly like birds or insects. As the birds are amazing example of flying object, insects are too that much interesting. They got some remarkable manoeuvring skill that hovering. In birds, only humming bird have this ability to hover. The capability of hummingbird to hover gives us a curiosity to study about the fundamentals of the hover. We explained the whole analysis very beautifully and in a fascinating manner.As in this era of advance aerodynamics, the concept of hovering hummingbird and its manoeuvring help us to develop an efficient aircraft. This report enhances our understanding in the field of aerodynamics. Briefing our ted talk, we as a team did something really noteworthy and want other to have look on this report. We read almost more than 30 article and research paper to make our report that worthy of it.
