The fluid-structure interaction of flexible bodies in steady and unsteady flow is a key area of interest for the development of underwater vehicles. In the design of marine vehicles the flow can often be seen as an obstacle to overcome, whilst in nature a fish interacts with the flow and is capable of achieving a high level of efficiency. Therefore by understanding how fish - or flexible bodies - interact with the flow we may be able to achieve a better level of co-operation between our vehicles and their environment, potentially attaining a better efficiency in design.
