Stereo-PIV study of flow around a maneuvering fish

Abstract

Stereoscopic PIV was used to measure the three-component velocity distribution around a live fish. At the same time, shadow images of the fish were captured by additional cameras in order to reconstruct the three-dimensional shape of the fish. The side jet shed against the swept tail during turning was evident in the results. The height of the jet was approximately equal to the height of the tail fin, and a vortex ring was observed around the side jet. Based on the circulation and diameter of the vortex ring, the impulse and time-averaged force in terms of the side jet were estimated.
