Computational Swimming Fish Aids Robot And Prosthetic Design

College Park MD (SPX) Oct 21, 2010 ![][1] Scientists at the University of Maryland and Tulane University have developed a computational model of a swimming fish that is the first to address the interaction of both internal and external forces on locomotion. The interdisciplinary research team simulated how the fish’s flexible body bends, depending on both the forces from the fluid moving around it as well as the muscles inside. Un
