Review of Fish Swimming Modes for Aquatic Locomotion

  title={Review of Fish Swimming Modes for Aquatic Locomotion},
  author={Michael Sfakiotakis and D. M. Lane and J. Bruce C. Davies},
Several physico-mechanical designs evolved in fish are currently inspiring robotic devices for propulsion and maneuvering purposes in underwater vehicles. Considering the potential benefits involved, this paper presents an overview of the swimming mechanisms employed by fish. The motivation is to provide a relevant and useful introduction to the existing literature for engineers with an interest in the emerging area of aquatic biomechanisms. The fish swimming types are presented, following the… CONTINUE READING
