Hi, i was looking at using the wiggle drive for a surfboard application - whereby two fins could be oscillating and a system will be in place to lock the fins in initial position once desired speed is achieved.
I am a final year mechanical engineering student, I am wondering which principle is used for the following: (ill try my best to explain)
The two fins will be Vertically mounted, they will flap from left to right and the pitch will be around +- 15 degrees.
It will be running off the same idea as this video
