内容简介

Although bird flight is as complex as is the variety of the birds using it, the underlying physical principles are the same for anything that flies. In this book author Colin Pennycuick explains his Flight program, and outlines the mechanics of flight as applied to birds and other flying vertebrates. This book outlines the principles of flight, and simplifies the mechanics of flight into a practical computer program, which will predict in some detail what any bird, real or hypothetical, can and cannot do. The Flight program, presented on the companion website, generates performance curves for flapping and gliding flight, and simulations of long-distance migration and accounts successfully for the consumption of muscles and other tissues during migratory flights. The program is effectively a working model of a flying bird (or bat or pterosaur) and is the skeleton around which the book is built.
