Underwater Snakes, Gusty Flying, and Microswimmers

Featured Video Play Icon

If you like your fluid dynamics with a healthy dose of biology, this video’s for you! Learn about the hydrodynamics of snake strikes, how birds fly in gusty crosswinds, and the mathematical underpinnings of a microswimmer’s journey. This is the final video in our FYFD/JFM collaboration featuring research from the 2017 APS DFD meeting. If you missed any of the previous videos, you can see them all here. Which one is your favorite? Would you like to see the series continue? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter! (Image and video credit: N. Sharp and T. Crawford)
