Dinosaurs, Propellers and Hiding Objects
A robot that swims like a dinosaur, simulations of industrial mixing, and how to hide an object by controlling its wake – take a sneak peek at the latest in fluid dynamics research. Featuring interviews with researchers from the APS-DFD 2017 conference discussing their work on bio-inspired underwater vehicles, numerical simulations of boundary flow and controlling the wake produced by a flexible tail.
