...Oliver P. Dewhirst; Kyle Roskilly; Tatjana Y. Hubel; Neil R. Jordan; Krystyna A. Golabek; J. Weldon McNutt; Alan M. Wilson ABSTRACT Changes in stride frequency and length with speed are key parameters in animal locomotion research. They are commonly measured in a laboratory on a treadmill...

... ) raised to the power 1/6, in accordance with the constructal scaling of animal locomotion. The world records also show that the speeds have increased in proportion with body heights ( H )raised to the power 1/2, in accordance with animal locomotion scaling. If the athlete's body is modeled with two length...

...{document} , and shows why these relations hold for running, flying and swimming. Animal locomotion is an optimized two-step intermittency: an optimal balance is achieved between the vertical loss of useful energy (lifting the body weight,which later drops), and the horizontal loss caused by friction...

.... Therefore it is incorrect and potentially misleading to assume that achieving kinematic similarity in models of measured animal locomotion will necessarily provide dynamically correct models. Ultimately, the purpose of the fineness ratio in the dynamical model is to provide an estimate of bell volume...
