dc.description.abstractMankind is continually searching for new sources of energy or methods to harness known sources. Recently, renewable and zero-pollution energy supplies are of great interest. Consequently, power generation from a fluttering wing is studied numerically and experimentally. Previous studies have suggested that an oscillating-wing used to extract energy from a fluid flow could deliver power comparable to windmills. Several studies are examined. An oscillating-wing power generator is designed and tested. The experimental results are compared with numerical predictions. Finally, commercial applications of the "environmentally friendly" oscillating-wing generator are investigated.en_US
