New paper published in Physical Review Fluids!

We uncover the effects of locally altering the tip region of a periodic flapping  fin system, by using a low order robotic model and detailed loads, motions and wake measurements. We show how the actuation of this region can largely modify propulsive performance and how important is the phase difference between the fin and the tip. #FluidDynamics #BioInspiredDesign†
