    • Gait and speed selection in slender inertial swimmers 

      Gazzola, Mattia; Argentina, Médéric; Mahadevan, Lakshminarayanan (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2015)
      Inertial swimmers use flexural movements to push water and generate thrust. We quantify this dynamical process for a slender body in a fluid by accounting for passive elasticity and hydrodynamics and active muscular force ...
