Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Avian flight dynamics and control - a multidisciplinary approach

Gliding flight is a core mode of locomotion used by owls during predation. As well as being known as silent gliders, recently owls have been shown to exhibit high aerodynamic efficiency (low drag) during gliding, achieved through careful manipulation of their wings and tail (Song et al, 2020, Cheney et al 2020).
