Engineering desing in insect wings

In the present work, investigations on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the dragonfly wing are carried out using SEM, and then a three-Dimensional (3D) model is developed and natural frequencies and mode shapes of dragonfly wing are obtained by Finite Element Method.

The relevant geometrical, micro-structural and mechanical properties of veins and membranes have been applied in this numerical model.
