The bamboo copter is known as a bamboo dragonfly, is a traditional toy that has several blades. It can fly by spinning.
In this blog, we simulate a bamboo copter with 2 blades.
The bamboo copter is calculated by pimpleFoam solver with sixDoFRigidBodyMotion set up in dynamicMeshDic.
shaft high = 0.222m
Blade length = 0.056 m
Initial angular velocity: w =7000 rpm.
Moment of inertia: Ix = Iy = 0.000018755625 kg.m^2
Iz = 0.00000225 kg.m^2
Rho = 1.227 kg/m^3
Weight: m = 0.01 kg
