We developed a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based tool coupled with a Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD) technique to investigate a self-propelled pufferfish motion within a still water environment. The 3D pufferfish model consists of body, caudal, dorsal and anal fins. The locomotion of fish is entirely determined by the computation and fully induced by the oscillation motion of fish fins. The influence of the phase angle difference on the fish swimming behaviour is examined by varying the angle difference between the caudal, dorsal, and anal fins. The swimming displacement, hydrodynamic force and the wake pattern are analysed.
