This paper presents a mathematical optimization on dynamic soaring, a behavior that certain sea birds use to extract flight energy from laminar wind velocity gradients in the shallow atmospheric boundary layer directly above the ocean surface. Theoretical modeling and numerical simulations based on a two degrees-of-freedom point mass model are presented.

Abstract

This paper presents a mathematical optimization on dynamic soaring, a behavior that certain sea birds use to extract flight energy from laminar wind velocity gradients in the shallow atmospheric boundary layer directly above the ocean surface. Theoretical modeling and numerical simulations based on a two degrees-of-freedom point mass model are presented.
