... with their flexible bodies. Medusa Fluid dynamics Wake structure Vorticity Cnidaria Scyphozoa Many free-swimming medusae swim by jet propulsion. Contraction of muscle fibres deforms the mesoglea, compressing the subumbrella cavity and forcing water out of the bell mouth, which transfers momentum...

Energetics of locomotion Escape manoeuvre Fluid dynamics Muscle development Zebrafish After hatching from the egg, most bony fish continue life as a larva, a few millimetres in length, that needs to survive autonomously. They have to hunt prey to gather resources for their growth and development...

... to suction feeders. The feeding ecology of goldfish and bluegill differs considerably and this may be partially due to differences in fluid dynamics and kinematics. Bluegill are the most planktivorous of all centrarchid species ( Collar et al., 2009 ), feeding on both midwater cladocerans and benthic...

We first used digital particle image velocimetry to quantify the fluid dynamics of flow over a variety of substrates. We then visualized the patterns...

.... The upstream fluid structures provide a new focus for fluid dynamic studies of swimming and flying. The upstream structure indicates the portion of fluid that interacts with the animal, thus enabling definition of a mass flow rate induced by locomotion. The new metric for efficiency (η LCS ),which is based...

...Jifeng Peng; John O. Dabiri SUMMARY The fluid dynamic analysis of animal wakes is becoming increasingly popular in studies of animal swimming and flying, due in part to the development of quantitative flow visualization techniques such as digital particle imaging velocimetry (DPIV). In most studies...

... is the identification of vortices. In fact, the precise definition of a vortex is currently debated in the fluid dynamics community (see, e.g., Haller, 2005 ). The intuitive definition of a vortex as a region with rotating flow, for example, is dependent on the choice of reference frame. The vorticity is also...
