Abstract This paper considers fish-like designs of underwater vehicles with oscillating tails and fins. To produce driving force, the original method based on the cyclic variation of the effective working area of the fin is proposed. Realization of this method makes it possible to minimize energy losses within operation cycles, when fin’s motion is affected by water resistance forces. Thanks to that useful driving forces are increased, and operation of fin propulsive device becomes more effective. Examples on synthesis of propulsive devices with varying working area of vibrating tail are given.
