Mathematical modelling of the avian flight power curve

Shay Gueron, Konstantin Levit-Gurevich

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An overview is given on a range of models of flight aerodynamics in birds. An attempt is made to explore how these modes give rise to a family of related forms of the power curve. The primary aim is to make clear the aerodynamics processes by which a bird generates lift and thrust, and to show how these can be incorporated in the models in different ways.
