Aerodynamic Force Platform design rules

The lab published the design rules for the Aerodynamic Force Platform we invented in Bioinspiration & Biomimetics. (Co)Authors Ben and Carl published their first journal paper and helped us describe the unique instrument that can be used to record fluid mechanic forces for animals and robots in fluid media with applications in biology, engineering and physics. The instrument enables direct, high-throughput, real-time, non-intrusive, and in vivo comparative biomechanics analysis of force generation by freely locomoting animals in fluid media and will help advance the field of experimental biology and bioinspired design.
