Flexible Margin Kinematics and Vortex Formation of Aurelia aurita and Robojelly
The development of a rowing jellyfish biomimetic robot termed as “Robojelly”, has led to the discovery of a passive flexible flap located between the flexion point and bell margin on the Aurelia aurita. A comparative ...
Biomimetic and Live Medusae Reveal the Mechanistic Advantages of a Flexible Bell Margin
Flexible bell margins are characteristic components of rowing medusan morphologies and are expected to contribute towards their high propulsive efficiency. However, the mechanistic basis of thrust augmentation by flexible ...
