Abstract


We study the dynamics and locomotion of a neutrally-buoyant deformable body that can undergo finite shape deformations and is immersed in a perfect and incompressible fluid. We model the body as a constrained Cosserat beam, more precisely, a Kirchhoff beam, and we derive the equations governing its motion in potential flow where the ambient fluid is accounted for using the added mass effect. We show that the submerged beam can undergo net locomotion due to applied torsional loading on its centerline. © 2009 by ASME.
