Efficiency Measurement of Bionic Propulsion
The existences of traditional water propulsion promote low efficiency. Used by biological propulsion, after the last million years of evolution, the maximum utilization of its power, the best way. Bionic propulsion system designed in this paper consists of two large travel umbrella wing plate in reciprocating linear travel agencies, led by the reciprocating motion along the vertical, in the water under the influence of backward movement of the wing disk automatically open, resulting in the pull forward, the forward movement of the wing disk automatically shut down to reduce water resistance. This paper designs a bionic propulsion and efficiency measurement tests carried out.
