Sperm actively propel themselves toward the egg and penetrate its vestments through the action of the beating flagellum. The energetic requirements of flagellar beating, and in particular the requirements for energy to be supplied to the distal flagellum, remain unresolved. We investigate these energetic requirements via elastohydrodynamic modelling and image analysis of human sperm, with particular reference to the role of the passive elastic structures of the flagellum.
