      Gray's classic study would provide the impetus for studies of bio-hydrodynamics and would affect the fields of material science, hydrodynamics, biorobotics, and diving physiology. The Gray's Paradox controversy resulted from the first attempt to evaluate swimming energetics in animals (Webb, ).Cited by: 4.   Dick K.P.

Yet, fitting different hydrodynamics-based functional forms of f (U) to the same f (U) results in different parameter values; equation (1) yields incorrect values of a, b, and c if equation (3) for ψ greater than 1 governs f (U); this is an inherent bias of equation (1), which is the standard equation used in all hydrodynamics-based metabolic Cited by: 6.

Host Institution: UNIABDN - University of Aberdeen Location: Aberdeen (UK) Doctoral degree: PhD in Engineering at the University of Aberdeen Job description: Fish hydrodynamics influences nearly all aspects of fish life-cycles and thus has significant implications for fish conservation.

undulatory propulsion include carangiform locomotion (up to one half wave on the body) and subcarangiform swimming (more than one half wave but less than one full wave), although additional names have also been used for. The mechanics of propulsion in cartilaginous fishes have been investigated over the years through studies of morphology, kinematics, hydrodynamics, muscle activity and energetics (Daniel, ;Di.

Borazjani and Daghooghi () have shown an important additional feature of fish tails that applies to both heterocercal and homocercal tail hydrodynamics: the tail appears to generate an attached leading edge vortex that enhances thrust in a manner similar to proposed previously for insect and bird wings.

By transferring momentum to the fluid, fishes generate thrust. Thrust is generated not only by its caudal fin, but also using pectoral and anal fins, the contribution of which depends on the fish’s morphology and swimming movements.

These fins also act as roll and pitch stabilizers for the swimming by: 2. Over the past 10 years, the development of new video and laser imaging technologies has permitted advances in the study of undulatory hydrodynamics in fishes that were not anticipated at the time the previous major reviews of fish propulsion were written (LindseyMagnusonWebbBlakeWebbVideler ).Cited by: Hydrodynamics of fish swimming dynamic pressure, consist of the following quantities: (1) thrust coefficient Cr, which.

involves one part Cr, due to the pressure difference ACp and another part Crs due. to the leading edge suction; (2) power input coefficient Cg. Abstract. The research on the hydrodynamics of compliant walls was originally inspired by the dolphin.

In particular, Gray’s paradox — the belief that specific power output of the propulsive muscles must greatly exceed the mammalian norm in order to achieve the observed swimming speeds if some form of laminar-flow control were not involved — has led to a great deal of.

Abstract. Animals swim by undulation, by rowing, by means of hydrofoils and by jet propulsion. These four main mechanisms of swimming will be discussed in turn in this chapter; a separate chapter on buoyancy follows.
