...Chihiro Kinoshita; Takuya Fukuoka; Tomoko Narazaki; Yasuaki Niizuma; Katsufumi Sato ABSTRACT Animals with high resting metabolic rates and low drag coefficients typically have fast optimal swim speeds in order to minimise energy costs per unit travel distance. The cruising swim speeds of sea...

... encountered 80 N of drag at 1.7 m s –1 whereas that magnitude of drag was not encountered until speed doubled for females 18 months post-parturition. Indeed, drag coefficients based on frontal surface area were significantly greater during pregnancy ( C d,F =0.22±0.04) than at 18 months post-parturition ( C d...

...) a single value of interference length (33.1mm) describes smooth struts with a range of shapes and sizes. These struts had drag coefficients between 0.33 and 0.91 at Reynolds numbers between 2100 and 10800. The interference length of a strut supporting the actual falcon body with a feathered surface...

...Vance A. Tucker ABSTRACT The mean, minimum drag coefficients ( C D,B ) of a frozen, wingless peregrine falcon body and a smooth-surfaced model of the body were 0.24 and 0.14, respectively, at air speeds between 10.0 and 14.5 ms −1 . These values were measured with a drag balance in a wind tunnel...
