Exploration of Materials for Scuba Fin Design using Ansys Granta EduPack

Scuba diving is a captivating sport that involves underwater exploration using a Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA). Diving fins play a crucial role in facilitating efficient and enjoyable underwater swimming through foot-propulsion. Designing scuba diving fins requires meticulous attention to blade material selection, shape, and underwater kicking force and resistance. In this series of case studies, we will delve into the intricate world of scuba diving fin design. The focus of this particular case study will be on the identification of optimal material candidates. Systematic material selection methodology has been applied through Ansys Granta EduPack to visualize material properties and to screen and select proper material candidates for scuba diving fins. By thoroughly examining these crucial factors, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of how materials contribute to the overall performance and design of scuba diving fins.
