This thesis presents findings on a new kind of renewable energy source. The source of renewable energy is a free stream of fluid which can be found at many places in nature, for example, ocean currents and winds. Wind turbines are one of the examples which convert wind energy into electricity. The flow-induced vibration of a circular cylinder and a thin plate are studied for flow energy extraction. Numerical simulations and experiments were performed to assess the power extraction efficiency. The flow-induced vibration is also used for enhancing heat transfer in a heat exchanger for better efficiency.
