Swimming movement of human being is quite distinctive compared to those of the other aquatic animals. Taking into account of such peculiarity, the authors recently have developed a simulation model “SWUM” to analyze the dynamics of the human swimming. The simulation model itself is firstly described. Next, examples of analysis, applications of the model, and its future are respectively described.
