Lookup NU author(s): Dr Ali BakhshandehrostamiORCiD



This is the authors' accepted manuscript of a book chapter that has been published in its final definitive form by Nova Science Publishers, 2015.

For re-use rights please refer to the publisher's terms and conditions.


This chapter is dedicated to investigate Aero/hydro elastic phenomena such as Fluttering, Galloping, Buffeting and Vortex Induced Vibration (VIV) for energy harvesting. This chapter includes three sections. In the first section, the energy of vortex is probed by analytical method and discussed about its different terms. The second section is devoted to consider the basic principle of Aero/Hydro elastic phenomena. Eventually, in the third section, application of Hydro/Aero elastic phenomena in energy harvesting by piezoelectric materials is investigated. Important parameters that have influence on piezoelectric harvesters are indicated and discussed. Moreover, in this section, a benchmarking is performed to evaluate harvesters that utilize different phenomena.
