Abstract

This paper describes work carried out at the University of Glasgow investigating biomimetic fish-like propulsion systems for underwater vehicles. The development of a simple mathematical model is described for a biomimetic fish like vehicle which utilizes a tendon drive propulsion system. This model is then compared with a model of a vehicle of similar size but with a propeller for main propulsion. Simulation results for both models are shown and compared.
