It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane: Flow Patterns around an Oscillating Piezoelectric Fan Blade

From a snake’s movement, to a gecko’s climbing grip, to a cheetah’s running stride, bio-inspired design is making its way into robotics, electronics, and medical device innovations. Among the creatures that have influenced recent tech developments, the motion of a bird’s wings has inspired the creation of an oscillating piezoelectric fan blade.
