This study carried out structural behaviors and power generation performances of customized energy harvesting block structures, especially for infrastructures such as parking facility. The improved energy block structures described in this study were represented by using numerical and experimental models. In particular, the composite-PZT hybrid energy blocks are tentatively proposed for better structural durability and power generation effects. The finite element model using ABAQUS program is used for studying static and dynamic characteristics of block structures made of composite materials. In addition, we evaluated the various power generation capacities of advanced energy block structures through laboratory-scale and field experiments.
