	%X The global demand for continuous and eco-friendly
renewable energy as alternative to fossils fuels is large and ever
growing in nowadays. This paper will focus on capability of Vortex
Induced Vibration (VIV) phenomenon in generating alternative
energy for offshore platform application. In order to maximize the
potential of energy generation, the effects of lock in phenomenon and
different geometries of cylinder were studied in this project. VIV is
the motion induced on bluff body which creates alternating lift forces
perpendicular to fluid flow. Normally, VIV is unwanted in order to
prevent mechanical failure of the vibrating structures. But in this
project, instead of eliminating these vibrations, VIV will be exploited
to transform these vibrations into a valuable resource of energy.
