... of the flexible fin surface. To expand our analysis of median fin function during the escape response of bluegill sunfish ( Lepomis macrochirus ), patterns of spanwise and chordwise curvature of the soft dorsal and anal fin surfaces were examined from the same video sequences previously used in analysis of fin...

...B. M. Friedrich; I. H. Riedel-Kruse; J. Howard; F. Jülicher SUMMARY The shape of the flagellar beat determines the path along which a sperm cell swims. If the flagellum bends periodically about a curved mean shape then the sperm will follow a path with non-zero curvature. To test a simple...

...Carlos A. Moreno; Russell P. Main; Andrew A. Biewener SUMMARY The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of non-steady locomotor activities on load predictability in two goat forelimb bones and to explore the degree to which bone curvature influences load predictability. We measured...

... and axial tongue stiffness. The three-dimensional deformation varied along the tongue with a mean curvature of 0.06 mm –1 and a maximum value of 0.5 mm –1 . At the basis of the anterior forked portion of the tongue tips, extreme curvatures up to 2.0 mm –1 were observed. These quantitative results support...
