SOME MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF THE FIN SWIMMING FIN
Keywords: fin, mechanical measurements, fin swimming
AbstractThe fin is a powerful propelling tool in fin swimming. The purpose of this study was to explore ways of quantifying the mechanical characteristics of fins so that future work can establish the relationships between these characteristics and performance. Measurement of natural frequency, deflection, and transfiguration under water might provide some valuable reference parameters for developing a more efficient fin.
