Higher Pressure Under The Hummingbird's Wing
349 wordsHummingbirds in Flight Hummingbirds are fascinating birds that are always fun to watch. These birds are able to hover in mid-air, dart from side to side, go straight up or down, or even backwards. They can out-fly and out-maneuver birds hundreds of times their size. There are many factors that contribute to the hummingbirds' ability to fly so easily through the air. A hummingbird's wings are shaped so that they are slightly rounded on the top. Bernoulli's Principle explains why this helps the bi...
Canard Configuration And The Flying Wing
1,973 wordsMost people are familiar with the Standard Configuration, the most common airplane design. However, recent revelations in both military and general aviation have shown at least a slight movement toward different arrangements of an airplane's lift and control surfaces. These variations in aircraft structure include the canard configuration and the flying wing. First, we must understand the basic principles of flight before any different configurations of lift surfaces can be discussed. In order f...
