Aerodynamics of Low Reynolds Number Flyers by Shyy, Wei | eBay
The interplay between flapping kinematics and key dimensionless parameters such as the Reynolds number, Strouhal number, and reduced frequency is highlighted. The various unsteady lift enhancement mechanisms are also addressed.

It reviews different researches going on in the field and presents the major results. For details on implementations, you will have to dig the sources by going into the references. Useful if you need introduction to the field, or trying to catch up on recent developments, but not so if you have already been doing research on the subject for more than a year or so.
A lot less details less equations than Mueller's "Fixed and Flapping Wing Aerodynamics for Micro Air Vehicle Applications", but more up to date and covers more about biological flight.

All Rights Reserved. In Stock. Many a Close Run Thing. Curiosity The Story of a Mars Rover. Low Reynolds number aerodynamics is important to a number of natural and man-made flyers. Birds, bats, and insects have been of interest to biologists for years, and active study in the aerospace engineering community, motivated by interest in micro air vehicles MAVs , has been increasing rapidly.
The primary focus of this book is the aerodynamics associated with fixed and flapping wings. The book consider both biological flyers and MAVs, including a summary of the scaling laws-which relate the aerodynamics and flight characteristics to a flyer's sizing on the basis of simple geometric and dynamics analyses, structural flexibility, laminar-turbulent transition, airfoil shapes, and unsteady flapping wing aerodynamics.
The interplay between flapping kinematics and key dimensionless parameters such as the Reynolds number, Strouhal number, and reduced frequency is highlighted. The various unsteady lift enhancement mechanisms are also addressed, including leading-edge vortex, rapid pitch-up and rotational circulation, wake capture, and clap-and-fling. Birds, bats, insects, and micro air vehicles MAVs share many aerodynamic features.
