    2. Collagen Fibers in
      Squid Mantle

      Developed a model for systems of collagen fibers that give a squid mantle its shape and mechanical properties. The model predicts optimal configurations for multiple fiber systems. This study illustrates how the squid’s reinforcing collagen fibers are aligned to provide several locomotory advantages and demonstrates how this complex biological process can be accurately modeled with several simplifying assumptions.

    3. Model of Fish
      Lateral Line Sensing

      Lateral line trunk canal (LLTC) of a fish is modeled to investigate how it is affected by an external flow field. We found that the main characteristics of a vortex street including the magnitude of vortices, their translational speed, their spacing, their distance from the fish’s body and the angle of the vortex street axis can all be recovered by measuring the velocity distribution along the canal and its changes with time.
