We have a new paper out in the ASME Journal of Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering (https://doi.org/10.1115/1.4047199). The paper deals with the dynamics and the drag forces on a cylinder with a flexible splitter plate near the free surface.
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
I am very happy to start my new role as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Fluids and Structures. Looking forward to contribute to the reference journal in fluid-structure interaction from the Laboratory for Fluid-Structure Interaction @UniversitatURV
