Numerical study on the performance of a flapping foil power generator with a passively flapping flat plate

Abstract

In this study, the flow characteristics of a flapping foil power generator with a passively flapping flat plate have been investigated using the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) and immersed boundary method at Reynolds number of 1100 based on the chord length. The aim is to explore potential benefits of flow induced passive actuation of the flat plate tail to… (More)
