Abstract

In this contribution we present the characterization of a bubble curtain produced with compressed air. The final goal is to implement a PIV system, with bubbles as tracers, that will help to understand drag and propulsion of a swimmer during a dolphin kick. The system will be used directly in a swimming pool. The first trials were made in a controlled water channel.
