Submarines Designed after Stingrays by Researchers

According to a latest report, the scientists are taking help from the natural shape of the stingrays in order to build-up an advanced and a more agile submarine. The researchers are planning to develop a more energy-efficient submarine and in order to design the same they are taking tips from the design of the stingrays.

Stingrays are a group of rays, which are cartilaginous fishes related to sharks. They are classified in the suborder Myliobatoidei of the orderMyliobatiformes, and consist of eight families.

According to the University of Buffalo news release report, this new ray-inspired vessels design could take the researchers to new ocean depths. The sources have revealed that this new design of submarine could also be very helpful in rescue missions.

A UB mechanical engineering graduate student, who participated in the research, said that most og the fish wave their tails to and fro in order to swim. The student also claimed that a stingray's swimming is much more unique or just like a flag in the wind.

The researchers have recently used computational fluid dynamic algorithms to trace the water vortices flow around the live stingrays. According to sources, this is for the very first time that a front vortex has been studied underwater by scientists.
