...-turbulence flow) at medium and high speeds. Surprisingly, fish used less oxygen in high-turbulence compared with low-turbulence flow at medium and high swimming speeds. Simultaneous measurements of swimming kinematics indicated that these reductions in oxygen consumption could not be explained by specific...

Small motions of the caudal and/or pectoral fins provide an efficient way to correct the angle, such that an equilibrium is even reached in case of unsteadiness imposed by the wake of an object. entraining fish locomotion hydrodynamics swimming kinematics rainbow trout...

... when interacting with vortices present in the environment that are not self-generated. To demonstrate this, we measured axial swimming kinematics in response to changes in known hydrodynamic wake characteristics. We compared trout swimming in the Kármán street behind different diameter cylinders (2.5...

...). Burst speeds for 9-day-old ducklings were compared with predicted hull speeds, based on the waterline length of ducklings either resting in water or actively swimming. Kinematic analysis of video tapes showed a mean maximum burst speed of 1.73 m s -1 , which was four times greater than the predicted...

... as slender body theory (SBT) models are both restricted to somewhat non-realistic ‘slender body’ geometries, and they both fail to consider swimming kinematics. The present BEM model, however, is applicable to organisms with arbitrary geometry and correctly accounts for swimming kinematics; hence, it agrees...
