A formulation for calculating the translational velocity of a vortex ring or pair.

Abstract

Cephalopods, among other marine animals, use jet propulsion for swimming. A simple actuator is designed to loosely mimic pulsatile jet formation in squid and jellyfish. The actuator is comprised of a cavity with an oscillating diaphragm and an exit orifice. Periodic oscillation of the diaphragm results in the formation of an array of vortex rings and… (More)
