This study focuses on the hydrodynamic interaction between two or three human swimmers in competitive swimming. the main purpose of this study is to find the mechanism of the hydrodynamic interaction between human swimmers and to quantify this interactive effect by using a steady potential flow solver.
A Rankine source panel method is used to solve the boundary value problem in equations.
a. All the results are calculated by the programming code by the simulation software MATLAB. Accordingly, all the files output with the txt or dat version.
b. The curves plots with Excel software.
c. All the wave pattern figure are obtained from the Software Tecplot.
