...)( Re squid =25–90). Squid paralarvae spent the majority of their time station holding in the water column, relying predominantly on a frequent, high-volume, vertically directed jet. During station holding,paralarvae produced a range of jet structures from spherical vortex rings( L ω / D ω =2.1, L V / D...

...,amplitude of the traveling wave and fin height. We compare these scaling relationships with prior theoretical work. The primary mechanism of thrust production is the generation of a streamwise central jet and the associated attached vortex rings. Under certain traveling wave regimes, the ribbon fin also...

...John O. Dabiri; Sean P. Colin; John H. Costello; Morteza Gharib SUMMARY Flow patterns generated by medusan swimmers such as jellyfish are known to differ according the morphology of the various animal species. Oblate medusae have been previously observed to generate vortex ring structures during...
