Secrets learned from the peregrine falcon diving flight

The peregine falcon is the fastest animal in the world which can reach 200mph during its stoop.The aerodynamics of this high- speed manoeuvre and its control in such flight conditions is investigated and discussed during the talk. Life studies in the field as well as experimental flow studies in the wind tunnel and CFD simulations helped to discover some of the features of the birds flight.
