Abstract : The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of caudal fin elasticity on swimmer propulsion. The swimmer paradigm is a simplified fish model where the fins are limited to a caudal one. This caudal fin can be either rigid or elastic. The fin spine elasticity is modeled by lumped springs and dampers. The effect of tail rigidity will be illustrated on 3D self propelled fishes.
