Abstract
This thesis presents research on the topic of fluid-structure interactions of smart beam energy harvesters for use in aerospace applications. A detailed overview of energy harvesting and how it is defined for this specific application is presented. The background topics explored include the study of smart structures, defining energy harvesting for the purpose of this thesis, and a review of how others have modeled this problem. With the inclusion of smart materials into the construction of a cross-section the need for a comprehensive model that can completely integrate both the one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) electro-mechanical coupling effects found in smart materials is necessary.
