...Kourosh Shoele; Qiang Zhu SUMMARY We numerically examine the fluidstructure interaction and force generation of a skeleton-reinforced fin that geometrically, structurally and kinematically resembles the pectoral fin of a fish during labriform swimming. This fin contains a soft membrane...

...I. Borazjani; F. Sotiropoulos SUMMARY We carry out fluidstructure interaction simulations of self-propelled virtual swimmers to investigate the effects of body shape (form) and kinematics on the hydrodynamics of undulatory swimming. To separate the effects of form and kinematics, we employ four...

..., the dynamic similarity between the model flight and actual insect flight was measured using not only the non-dimensional numbers for the fluid (the Reynolds and Strouhal numbers) but also those for the fluidstructure interaction (the mass and Cauchy numbers). A difference was observed between the mass number...

... model is then incorporated into a boundary-element hydrodynamic model to achieve coupled fluidstructure interaction simulation. Kinematically, we incorporate both a homocercal mode with dorso-ventral symmetry and a heterocercal mode with dorso-ventral asymmetry. Using the homocercal mode, our results...
