For the design of a bio-inspired, fish-like robot with caudal fin, a Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) analysis has been conducted to investigate the influence of material properties and undulation kinematics on hydrodynamic performance and efficiency. This supports the design process with focus on practical prototype build up.
