Learning from fish and flags to inform new propulsion strategies: Connections between resonance and nonlinearity in swimming performance of a flexible heaving plate

Recent research has found relationships between frequencies and the passive dynamics at play when vehicles move in air or water toward a better understanding of how to use these forces to enhance performance. Understanding this fluid-structure interaction at a very basic level, could help inform new aircraft and submarine designs with a very different kind of locomotion.
