CFD and Bluefin Tuna
Posted Wed July 15, 2015 @09:40PM

Application CFD has many interesting applications. One of these is the use of Cradle SC/Tetra CFD software, by Professor Tsutomu Takagi at the Kinki University (Japan) Department of Fisheries, to evaluate drag forces on bluefin tuna.

Bluefin tuna, considered to be the "diamonds of the sea", are able to swim nearly 90 km/h (56 mph) and account for only 2% of tuna catches.

As a result, bluefin tuna are traded on the market at the highest rate. A better understanding of bluefin tuna behavior is especially important for a country like Japan where fishing is an important part of the country's economic livelihood.

Expand your appreciation for the breadth of CFD by reading about Professor Takagi's research in this Cradle case study report.
