Effect of morphology on the large-amplitude flapping dynamics of an inverted flag in a uniform flow

The stability of a cantilevered elastic sheet in a uniform flow has been studied extensively due to its importance in engineering and its prevalence in natural structures. Varying the flow speed can

Flapping of heavy inverted flags: a fluid-elastic instability

Abstract Wind tunnel experiments are described in this paper, aiming to examine the global dynamics of heavy inverted flags, with a specific focus on the underlying mechanism of large-amplitude

The dynamics of a rigid inverted flag

Abstract An ‘inverted flag’ – a flexible plate clamped at its trailing edge – undergoes large-amplitude flow-induced flapping when immersed in a uniform and steady flow. Here, we report direct

Global modes and nonlinear analysis of inverted-flag flapping

An inverted flag has its trailing edge clamped and exhibits dynamics distinct from that of a conventional flag, whose leading edge is restrained. We perform nonlinear simulations and a global

Nonlinear dynamics of slender inverted flags in axial flow

A nonlinear fluidelastic continuum model is proposed for a slender cantilevered plate subjected to axial flow, directed from the free end to the clamped one. A nonlinear equation of motion is derived

A Review on Fluid-Induced Flag Vibrations

Fluid-induced flag vibrations provide unattended, efficient, low-cost, and scalable solutions for energy harvesting to power distributed wireless sensor nodes, heat transfer enhancement in channel

Large-amplitude flapping of an inverted flag in a uniform steady flow – a vortex-induced vibration

The dynamics of a cantilevered elastic sheet, with a uniform steady flow impinging on its clamped end, have been studied widely and provide insight into the stability of flags and biological

Self-induced flapping dynamics of a flexible inverted foil in a uniform flow

We present a numerical study on the self-induced flapping dynamics of an inverted flexible foil in a uniform flow. A high-order coupled fluid–structure solver based on fully coupled Navier–Stokes and

Dynamics of an inverted flexible plate in a uniform flow

The dynamics of an inverted flexible plate with a free leading-edge and a fixed trailing-edge in a uniform flow has been studied numerically by an immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann method for the

Energy harvesting by flow-induced flutter in a simple model of an inverted piezoelectric flag

Two-dimensional numerical simulations are used to study the coupled fluid–structure–electric interaction of a simple model of an inverted piezoelectric flag, and to investigate the dynamics of the

Flapping dynamics of an inverted flag

Abstract The dynamics of an inverted flag are investigated experimentally in order to find the conditions under which self-excited flapping can occur. In contrast to a typical flag with a fixed

Stability of slender inverted flags and rods in uniform steady flow

Cantilevered elastic sheets and rods immersed in a steady uniform flow are known to undergo instabilities that give rise to complex dynamics, including limit cycle behaviour and chaotic motion.
