Exploring the Biofluiddynamics of Swimming and Flight
by

Publisher: Wageningen University
ISBN-13: 9789085049715
Number of pages: 192

Description:
Many organisms must move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices, yet the dynamics are complex: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.
