Highlights•Kinematics of a flapping foil with two rotational motions is considered.•The proposed kinematics model is generalized model.•At lower and higher Strouhal numbers the hydrodynamic performance of foil is optimum when the length of caudal is infinitive.•Effect of caudal on hydrodynamic performance of flapping foil in fish-like swimming is investigated.
