We present a hybrid experimental and theoretical study on the oscillatory behavior exhibited by multiple thin sheets under aerodynamic loading. Our clapping book consists of a stack of paper, clamped at the downstream end and placed in a wind tunnel with steady flow. As pages lift off, they accumulate onto a bent stack held up by the wind.

We present a combined theoretical and experimental investigation of two systems in which flexible bodies are induced to oscillate by steady flows. The first system we study consists of multiple thin sheets of paper in a steady flow, clamped at the downstream end, which we call the "clapping book". Pages sequentially lift off, accumulating in a stack of(More)
