  • Comparative study of snake lateral undulation kinematics in model heterogeneous terrain dataset 

    Schiebel, Perrin E.; Hubbard, Alex M.; Goldman, Daniel I. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-09-24)
    Terrestrial organisms that use traveling waves to locomote must leverage heterogeneities to overcome drag on the elongate body. While previous studies illuminated how habitat generalist snakes self-deform to use rigid ...
  • Mitigating memory effects during undulatory locomotion on hysteretic materials dataset 

    Schiebel, Perrin E.; Rieser, Jennifer M.; Astley, Henry C.; Agarwall, S.; Hubicki, C.; Hubbard, Alex M.; Cruz, K.; Mendelson, J.; Kamrin, K.; Goldman, Daniel I. (2019)
    Undulatory swimming in flowing media like water is well studied, but little is known about locomotion in environments that are permanently deformed by body-substrate interactions like snakes in sand, eels in mud, and ...
  • Tracked data for Chionactis occipitalis through a post array 

    Schiebel, Perrin E.; Rieser, Jennifer M.; Hubbard, Alex M.; Chen, Lillian; Rocklin, D. Zeb; Goldman, Daniel I. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-01-25)
    Limbless animals like snakes inhabit most terrestrial environments, generating thrust to overcome drag on the elongate body via contacts with heterogeneities. The complex body postures of some snakes and the unknown physics ...
  • Tail use improves soft substrate performance in models of early vertebrate land locomotors 

    McInroe, Benjamin; Astley, Henry C.; Gong, Chaohui; Kawano, Sandy M.; Schiebel, Perrin E.; Rieser, Jennifer M.; Choset, Howie; Blob, Richard W.; Goldman, Daniel I. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-05-27)
    In the evolutionary transition from an aquatic to a terrestrial environment, ancient vertebrates (e.g. early tetrapods) faced the challenges of terrestrial locomotion on flowable substrates (e.g. sand and mud) of variable ...
