Wolf, Thomas and Kirmse, Tania and Konrath, Robert and Erlinghagen, Thomas (2010) Measuring Shape of Bird Wings During Flight using an Optical Correlation Based Method. 14th International Symposium on Flow Visualization (ISVF), 21.-24. Juni 2010, Daegu, Korea.

This paper investigates the application of the optical correlation based Image Pattern Correlation Technique (IPCT) for high precision measurements of bird wings. Based on preliminary tests with a wing preparation, several options of using IPCT in combination with the natural plumage texture of birds are discussed, with respect to the measurement accuracy and their influence on the feather properties. Based on these results, a setup for measuring the shape of bird wings during free gliding flight using a projected pattern was derived. Presented are the final setup and the results of a free flight experiment using a trained barn owl.
