Abstract
Electrically induced flapping motion of aluminum foil with a high frequency is demonstrated. The flapping motion was recorded by using a high speed camera and characterized by analyzing the tip displacement of the foil. It is found that a critical voltage presents to induce the flapping motion and the vibration frequency depends on the dimensions of the foils as well as the dielectric properties of the supporters for the foil. Induced directional airflow by the flapping motion was also demonstrated here. This study may provide a simple way to realize the two-dimensional flying vehicle in the future.
