.... For example, the insect tracheal system has inspired biomimetic approaches to microfluidics; Aboelkassem and Staples (2013) used observations and data on contractions of insect tracheae to develop models of selective pumping of fluids in complex networks of tubes. Understanding patterns of ventilation...

... that the overall mass flux is zero. Use of the model enabled us to analyze the inflow at various jet parameters. We show that variation of directions and relative intensities of the jets allows the direction of odour attraction to be changed. These results provide a rationale for biomimetic robot design. We...
