Title:
Maximum Travel Speed Performance of Albatrosses and UAVs Using Dynamic Soaring 
Abstract:
The travel performance in non-powered flight that is achievable with dynamic soaring is treated, with emphasis put on the highest net travel speed. A systematic mathematical approach is used, applying a realistic flight mechanics model for describing the 3dimensional motion in dynamic soaring and an efficient optimization method for determining the trajectory that yields the maximum travel speed. It is shown how the maximum travel speed increases with the wind speed. Furthermore, characteristics...    »
