Detached burrs and contaminants are removed from the component surface by the aerodynamic force of the compressed air and transported away by a suction unit integrated into the processing cell.
Given that the direction of movement always changes in an oscillating system (outward movement changes to inward movement), an aerodynamic force that is not direction sensitive or cannot change with direction of movement is useless.
Borrowing birds and bats from their project, he placed each animal in a flight chamber outfitted with aerodynamic force sensors at the top and bottom of the chamber -- equipment developed by Lentink's lab to measure extremely small changes in vertical force at 10,000 times per second.
The aerodynamic force of the jet transports the detached dirt away.
In the resulting dimensionless equations of motion, three parameters have significant effects on the solid motion: the Tachikawa number K (ratio of the aerodynamic force to the gravity force), the Froude number Fr (or dimensionless plate length [L.sub.n] = 1/[Fr.sup.2]), and the dimensionless mass moment of inertia parameter [I.sub.n] of the solid:
They concluded that if the wing flapped at a frequency close but below the wing's natural vibration frequency, the flexibility can increase the aerodynamic force and the energy efficiency.
