Abstract

Fluid mechanic equations are used to show effects of virtual mass force, non-Archimedean buoyant force, and profile drag force on fish in several fish passage structures. Example problems are worked out to show computational procedures for calculating net propulsive force, net power, and net energy necessary for fish to swim in a lake, up a steep chute, and through the outlet, barrel and inlet of a culvert.
