Abstract

Piezoelectric patches are bounded on a keel bulb in order to harvest vibration energy by converting electrical output. Unsteady computational fluid dynamics method is also used to find the structural boundary condition such as the hydrodynamic pressure fluctuation. Finite element analysis (FEM) is used to find structural and electrical responses.
