Segue, abaixo, uma breve descrição do Special Issue:

Flow-induced vibration (FIV) is widely encountered in many scientific and engineering applications, such as aerospace, coastal, offshore, and petroleum engineering. On one hand, vigorous FIV can potentially result in structural damage or even failure of the structure, and major economic losses, such that a variety of vibration suppression methods have been proposed and evaluated in the past decades, including active and passive controls. A galloping fluid-instability phenomenon is commonly encountered when the control devices are implemented on the vibrating structure, altering the axis symmetry of the bluff body and hence affecting the vibration suppression efficiency. On the other hand, the vibration response is of great benefit to the concept of hydrokinetic energy harvesting, i.e. extracting the mechanical energy of structural vibration induced by flows. To enhance the energy harvesting efficiency, large-scale arrayed harvesters are necessary, yielding a series of challenging issues, such as coupling of vibration and energy harnessing, the coupling of vibration and rotation, and wake interference and wake-induced vibration among multiple bodies arranged in specific configurations.

The aim of this Special Issue is to publish invited papers that advance the state of knowledge in a range of topics relevant to flow-induced vibration.

The topics of the special issue include but are not limited to:

  • Flow induced vibration of rigid and flexible bluff bodies
  • Vortex-induced motion of floating bodies
  • Passive and active controls of vortex shedding and vortex-induced vibration of bluff bodies
  • Wake-induced oscillation
  • Galloping and fluid instability
  • Wake/proximity interference among multiple bodies
  • Vortex-induced rotation of bluff bodies
  • Energy harvesting based on flow-induced vibration
