In this study, a system was designed and constructed in order to measure the drag force acting on the swimmer simulator. This system must be able to obtain the drag force for a range of swimsuit fabrics to characterize the hydrodynamic properties of swimsuit fabric. In this system, a DC motor was used as the propelling unit; also a voltmeter and an ammeter were applied to measure the input power of motor. To find the relationship between input powers and drag force, calibration was done. The… CONTINUE READING
