Published: 4 August 2020
... image velocimetry (PIV) revealed that the formation of a vortex, rather than the expulsion of fluid between two closing body surfaces, generates propulsion in rusty crayfish. PIV also revealed that the pleopods (ventral abdominal appendages) contribute to the momentum generated by the tail. To our...

... ). Therefore, turbulence should be distinguished from highly periodic coherent structures such as waves or vortex streets. These structures may be influenced by turbulence or have turbulence superimposed upon them, but are not themselves ‘turbulent’. The response of fish to these ‘altered’ or complex flows...

.... Hydrodynamics Biomechanics Propulsion Fish Vortex Flexible bending Aquatic animals significantly outperform man-made aquatic vehicles because they are able to move in water with greater efficiency and maneuverability ( Bandyopadhyay, 2005 ; Gemmell et al., 2013 ). Animals achieve these performance...

...Daegyoum Kim; Morteza Gharib SUMMARY Several characteristics of drag-based paddling propulsion are studied with a simple mechanical model and a measurement technique for mapping three-dimensional flow fields. In drag-based propulsion, the temporal change of the vortex strength is an important...

..., according to the principle of conservation of mass. Three vortices (designated with white 1, 2 and 4 ) were observed ( Fig. 5A ) adjacent to the dorsal and ventral CFP jets. The dorsal CFP jet was the central jet of the 1 and 2 vortex pair. At this instant, vortex 2 was structurally shared...

..., quasi-steady flow is assumed and the flow analysis is based on velocity and/or vorticity fields measured at a single time instant during the stroke cycle. The assumption of quasi-steady flow leads to neglect of unsteady (time-dependent) wake vortex added-mass effects,which can contribute significantly...

... model provides an approach to empirically deduce swimming and flying forces based on the measurement of velocity and vortex added-mass in the animal wake. The model is contingent on the identification of the vortex boundary in the wake. This paper demonstrates the application of that method to a case...

It is demonstrated that the velocity/pressure perspective is equivalent to the vorticity/vortex-added-mass approach...

In the spotted boxfish, which is largely trapezoidal in cross section, consistent dorsal vortex growth posterior to the eye ridge was also present. When all...

.... During this gait,body amplitudes and curvatures are much larger than those of trout swimming at an equivalent flow velocity in the absence of a cylinder. Tail-beat frequency is not only lower than might be expected for a trout swimming in the reduced flow behind a cylinder, but also matches the vortex...

...Tyson L. Hedrick; Bret W. Tobalske; Andrew A. Biewener SUMMARY Birds and bats are known to employ two different gaits in flapping flight,a vortex-ring gait in slow flight and a continuous-vortex gait in fast flight. We studied the use of these gaits over a wide range of speeds (1-17 ms -1...
