Self-propelled swimming simulations of bio-inspired smart boxes
(Bioinspiration & biomimetics, 2016)
This paper presents self-propelled swimming simulations of a foldable structure, whose folded configuration is a box. For self-locomotion through water the structure unfolds and undulates. To guide the design of the structure ...
The hydrodynamic advantages of synchronized swimming in a rectangular pattern
(Bioinspiration & biomimetics, 2015)
Fish schooling is a remarkable biological behavior that is thought to provide hydrodynamic advantages. Theoretical models have predicted significant reduction in swimming cost due to two physical mechanisms: vortex hypothesis, ...
The inﬂuence of inertia on the rheology of a periodic suspension of neutrally buoyant rigid ellipsoids
(Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 2015)
We investigate the rheological properties of a suspension of neutrally buoyant rigid ellipsoids by fluid–structure interaction simulations of a particle in a periodic domain under simple shear using the curvilinear ...
The eﬀects of irregular shape on the particle stress of dilute suspensions
(Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 2018)
The irregular shape of particles in suspensions is typically approximated by simple geometries such as spheres or ellipsoids. We investigate the accuracy of such an approximation by comparing two irregular-shaped particles ...
The eﬀect of self-propulsion on the particle stress in dilute suspensions of rod-like particles
(European Journal of Computational Mechanics, 2017)
We compared a dilute suspension of undulating rod-like particles (active suspension) with a similar one consisting of rigid rods (passive suspension) under shear flow. For the active suspension, a synchronised group of ...
The ﬁsh tail motion forms an attached leading edge vortex
(Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B: Biological Sciences, 2013)
The tail (caudal fin) is one of the most prominent characteristics of fishes, and the analysis of the flow pattern it creates is fundamental to understanding how its motion generates locomotor forces. A mechanism that is ...
